Many of our parishioners have said that they would prefer a slightly earlier Saturday Vigil Mass. In order to respond to this, we are changing the Mass time from 6pm to 5.30pm. This change will come into effect on Saturday 26th November 2022, when the Mass will begin at 5.30pm.
We want to launch a new parish lottery, a 100 Club, to begin in the new year 2023. This will involve a monthly draw, with a larger prize each December. Subscriptions will be £5 per month, payable by cheque or Standing Order only. Please register your interest with Lynn, Sean or Fr Richard. Once we have a significant interest, we can make concrete plans to register your subscriptions and to plan an attractive monthly draw with a starting date.
Our Christmas Fair this year is taking place on Sunday 27th November, and starts at 11am. You are warmly invited to be involved in any way. You might like to hold a stall, lead games for children, deploy a talent, or help provide and host refreshments. There is a chart in the church porch for you to indicate your part in the event.
The interior of our church was recently redecorated by ES Decor of Ossett, who did a wonderful job. Our church, which holds the Lord's presence, is again bright and colourful, in his honour.
A Prayer and Praise hour is being held on each Wednesday of Advent, starting on Wednesday 30th November, at 6pm in the Parish Centre. This will be a time of prayer, music and worship. You will be most welcome as we seek to focus our lives on the Lord and his presence this Advent.
Our choir rehearsals, which had to stop because of Covid, are starting up again and you are warmly invited to be a part. Grateful thanks to Rob for offering this opportunity again. The Choir Rehearsals are on Thursday evenings at 7.30pm in the Parish Centre. We start on Thursday 3rd November 2022.
We have Eucharistic Adoration every Friday morning in our church, 8am to 8.45am.
