Could you spare an hour on Thursday mornings after 10am Mass to help with cleaning the church and adjacent areas? In addition to the main church, we look after the meeting room, music room, hall/toilets, and kitchen, as well as outside the church. We start straight after Mass at approx. 10.30am. just turn up on the day and you will be given something to do. We particularly need someone to clean the church toilets. The cleaning team enjoy refreshments in the church hall afterwards. All the work in the church contributes greatly to the life of the parish and is much appreciated.

Why? Every parish in England and Wales has been asked to hold a Prayer Vigil next weekend for Evangelisation: spreading the Joy of the Gospel.

Please ake a special effort to attend this vigil and join with thousands of other Catholics, who will all be praying for the same result: to further the work of bringing about God’s Kingdom here on Earth. If you would like further details, see Fr John, David Knight or Mary Wilford.
“Jesus is Alive – Go and tell my brothers.” This is the theme of the next Prayer and
It doesn’t matter if you haven’t been to any of the previous sessions. Feel free to come to this one and reflect on the subject of evangelisation before the vigil in the evening. It will be much more meaningful if you have thought about it in advance.
