Petertide is ever the time for ordinations, confirmations and first communions. And Saint Anselm is busy getting ready for our own celebrations which will be taking place on Sunday July 16th.
On that day the 8am and 9:15am Mass will be said and the principal service will take place at 11am. The celebrant will be Mgr. Keith Newton. During the service several children will be admitted to holy communion for the first time and we may have a couple of adult confirmations. (Some of the confirmation candidates are being confirmed at a later date).
After the service we will be holding our annual parish summer BBQ. People are asked to donate £5 to cover the cost of meat and pudding and to bring with them a salad or pasta dish for the table. We will be running a bar and a barrel of beer has already been ordered. Because catering is aided when we have a good idea of numbers- please do sign up for the BBQ as soon as possible.
