A MESSAGE FROM HELEN HOWLEY, PARISH ADMINISTRATOR.

Today is my last day here and this is my last Newsletter. I am feeling quite sad but happy at the same time!   I just wanted to say THANK YOU for all the cards, gifts and kind words I have received over the last few weeks.  I hope to see you at the Mass that Fr Martin is very kindly saying for me on 23rd July, and afterwards at the party.

God Bless & keep you all.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO THE FOLK GROUP

The folk group was formed 40 years ago by Sean & Hazel Stone.  They were the first couple to be married in the new St Thomas More Church.  Soon after, Mgr Anglim gave them permission to form a folk group which has been playing ever since and is helped by the choir at Mass.  The folk group is joined  by other instrumentalists and singers to give concerts at sheltered housing, care homes and charity concerts under the name ‘The Family Music Makers.’  This extended group plays for the ‘Churches Together’ carol concerts and pantomimes and helps at special Masses such as the Childrens Christmas Mass.

Their instruments include drums, violins, flutes, accordion, ukulele, steel pans, keyboard, bass guitar and acoustic guitars.  Their repertoire includes Irish, Pop, Folk & Christmas songs.  On Saturday 12 October, to celebrate their 40 years, the folk group are playing a social evening in the Parish Centre..  The event will include a singalong, some songs to listen to and food.

So please put the date in your diary. 

 Catechism classes  are after the 9.30am Mass on Sundays.  If your child is NOT AT A CATHOLIC SCHOOL please ensure they regularly attend these classes prior to enrolment for First Communion programme. The next class is on 14th July
