Our Mission Statement We are first of all a Eucharistic community, centred on Christ, without whom we will get nowhere. We all of us have something to share with each other (and pass on), in order to discover ever more about our faith. And too we are evangelisers: Christ is Saviour of everyone.

Are you experiencing marriage problems? There is professional and confidential counselling available to couples and individuals. No matter the person or the circumstances, we’re here to listen and help. Visit www.marriagecare.org.uk or phone 0800 389 3801 to make an appointment to see a counsellor.

Anniversaries: We pray for those whose anniversaries occur this week including Mary Heard, Gwendoline Sturm, Bridget Begley, Josie Cauke, Kathleen Rowe, Raymond Thoreau, Fr David Waite, Pauline Clarke, John Seale, Christina Joyce and Henryk Olearczyk
