Our Mission Statement We are first of all a Eucharistic community, centred on our friendship with 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. We pray for each other.
