Young people in Year 9 (13+) and above are very welcome to put themselves forward to be confirmed. If you are an older teenager or adult and would like to be confirmed, you would be most welcome. Pass on this information to anyone who you think may be interested in being confirmed. After reading this information and you feel ready to present yourself see Fr Larkin after Mass for further information and to register. Preparation will be starting soon …
A very warm welcome to our parish. We are fortunate to have a fine church. It’s upkeep has been helped by the Gift Aid programme which has worked well for us in the past and we have therefore begun to make efforts to ensure that offerings made by visitors during Mass are included in our Gift Aid scheme. If you are a UK taxpayer, and if you place your offering in the white envelopes found in the Foyer and simply enter your name and address, we will be able to reclaim the tax you have paid on the amount given. Envelopes can be posted in the letterbox in the Foyer, given to a parish Welcomer, or placed on the Offertory tray.
WEEKLY MASSES ARE AT 6PM ON SATURDAY
Sacrement of Reconciliation every Saturday 5.15pm - 5.45pm
