The parish website has been updated- with some new pictures and more up to date information. The only remaining piece of the jigsaw is to replace the photograph of outgoing (long gone) Tom on the music page with a mugshot of incoming (already in place) Aidan; who assures me he is sending a suitable picture post haste…Don’t forget that the website contains a link to the parish bulletin to keep people up to date with our news and service programme.
Meanwhile there is great news on the parish restoration front. The Worshipful Company of Glaziers, who have kindly gifted us the magnificent window pictured above (click to enlarge), have finished cleaning and restoring it. The next step, which Fr. Nicholas is overseeing, is to have the window fixed into a sturdy frame. Once framed we shall then liaise with our builders and fix a date for it to be placed into the sanctuary to replace the existing window which is more suited to a hall. Exciting stuff!
So far we have raised £5774.50 pounds of the £10,000 target we set at the beginning of August. A huge thank you to everyone who has contributed. The generosity shown means we now have the funds to get the window in place but are still working towards a target to enable us to update the lighting in church; which is woefully inadequate and will become worse once the window is in place and we lose some natural light. A card and cake sale is being held between the 9:15am and 11am Mass this Sunday to further boost the fund. Please bring your wallets!!
