BBQ and first communion

This Sunday our 8am and 9:15am Masses will be said because we are encouraging everyone to come along and support Shay Haughian as he makes his first communion at 11am; at a Sung Mass to be celebrated by Mgr. Keith Newton. After this we shall be rolling out the barrel- of ale- and firing up the coals as we host our annual summer BBQ. Those attending are asked to bring a salad or desert for the table and a donation of £5 per head to affray the cost of meat is appreciated. The crazy hat competition will take place as normal and the Ordinary will be the judge whose decision is final. Can Robert land a record third title in a row?

This weekend we shall be unveiling the new lighting in church. A huge thank you to everyone who donated for this cause. The old system was tired and not fit for purpose. Partly because it comprised a series of old fashioned strip lights only half of which functioned and partly because they were set up for a hall not a church. The system has transformed the ambience and quality of light. We are extremely grateful to Jake our electrician whose skill, dedication and attention to detail are first rate.

  1. Hope the weather kept fine for you all! Be good to see some pictures of the effect of the new lighting. If that is possible ( not sure if it is…) And congratulations to Shay!
