30th Sunday in Ordinary Time

Fr. Duncan writes:
As many of you will know, we have had, and are having, problems with people parking in our car park without permission. During this past week, I have met with some contractors regarding a barrier control system that might help us regain the use of our car park. I am now awaiting their proposals and costing. As I get more information, I will let you know what is involved.

Christmas Fayre
It is with great regret we will not have a Christmas Fayre this year. I am grateful to the two people who came forward to help, but unfortunately we are too short of time to get all in place for a successful fayre. We are now looking at the possibility of having a Spring Fayre next year. Watch this space!

I am hoping that we can have a Grand Christmas Draw, to be drawn at the Carol Service in December. I expect to have more news of this in the next week or so.

On Saturday 12th November at 6.00pm we welcome all the families of those who have had a loved one buried or cremated from our Church in the past year for our Annual Bereavement Mass.
