Email Communication with the Parish Office

 

We are experiencing some difficulty with our current email system which is preventing us from receiving some emails that have attachments. It is also affecting some emails that are   being sent out. This has been the case for some weeks now, and while we are working on a fix with our IT support, can’t see it being a quick process.


If you are expecting a response from the parish office, or Fr. Simon and haven’t received one in a timely manner, please check in by calling the parish office or sending an email (without an attachment!) so we can assist you further.

 

Parish Safeguarding Volunteer

 

This important role is presently vacant. The role assists and supports our parish clergy and Parish Pastoral

Council in ensuring safeguarding practices are embedded across our parish life.

The role seeks to highlight and promote means that support the health, wellbeing and human rights of all, and especially of children, young people, and vulnerable adults, such as those with a disability or who are     elderly. The role does not involve counselling or investigating complaints. Training will be provided through the Institute of Professional Standards and Safeguarding within the Archdiocese.

Further information and requirements are available through the parish office as well as from Fr Simon.  Safety at all times is paramount for each of us. Can you help the Parish maintain a strong and effective focus on safeguarding best practices within the life and ministries of our Parish?

 

Draft Guidelines for the Parish Pastoral Council-For Comment

The PPC has developed a set of Guidelines to provide clarity to the Parish and PPC members about its responsibilities and operations. 

The Guidelines were first discussed at the open PPC meeting earlier this year. The current draft of the Guidelines has been emailed out with the bulletin 28/08/2022, and can be accessed from the "PARISH NEWS' link on the left hand side of this page.

 Any comments on the Guidelines should be submitted in writing to the Parish Office or raised with a member of the PPC by 28 September so that they can be finalised at the October PPC meeting.

 

Upcoming Events

Multicultural Mass

Date: Nov 6 2022

 

We plan to have our Multicultural Mass again this year on Sunday 6 November.  This Mass is a great opportunity to celebrate your nationality with all members of our parish. The Mass will be as colourful as you can make it - wearing your national costume, carrying your national flag, sharing the readings and the Prayers of Intercession in your language and providing music from your country of origin.  After the Mass, we will have a shared meal.  So, please raid your recipes for the best national dish you can bring to share with all of us.

If you are interested in attending our Multicultural Mass, please email jennymurphys@icloud.com as soon as possible and I shall contact you with further details. 

 


Sacrament of First Holy Communion

Date: Sep 10 2022

Children within the parish are preparing to receive the sacrament of First Holy Communion.

The Sacrament will be celebrated at all Masses on the weekends of 10th-11th September, and 17th-18th September. 

Please keep these children and their families in your prayers as they prepare.
