    “Again, this year we are called to pray so that all Christians may once again be a single family, according to God’s will so that they may all be one……Christian Unity is not something optional”

    Pope Francis, 18 January 2019


    20 January 2019



    As I will be away on holiday until Friday the 25th of January I am pleased that Fr. Sandy is with you again.   Please provide him with the warm welcome you always do.


    This week is a week of prayer for Christian Unity.  Please keep this

    cause, so close to Pope Francis’ heart, in your prayers especially at this


    Prayer “For an end to the divisions among Christians: that they pursue

    Justice to discover new ways to work together to announce freedom,

     bring healing and promote reconciliation as signs of God’s reign.”


    Justice and Peace Group, Our Justice and peace group have organised

    a speaker to speak on the issue of recognising modern slavery and human trafficking. We are very blessed to have Alister Bull speaking to us on this

    very important subject, please make the effort to come along. It will be held

    in the M.S.Centre on Wednesday the 23rd of January at 7pm. All welcome.  


    Our payment to the diocese for our levy as a parish has risen from

    £496 a month, to £893 a month, as you can see this is a significant rise.

    I would like to thank you all for your continued generosity to the parish.


    Our sacramental classes will continue this week on Thursday at 6.15pm


    Our prayer group will continue on Wednesday 9th January at 7.00pm
