Parish Synod Delegates: As required by the Dioceses each Parish is to get Delegates to the Diocesan Listening Session and I pleased to announce that we have been able to have our Parish Delegates to the Diocesan Synod body. A warm welcome and thanks to all those who have volunteered in this role. Members of your parish synod team are Alex Faircloth, Kathy Ball, Matthew David, Pauline Hall and Trisha Higgins. Two delegates from this team will give feedback from our parish meetings at the next stage of the process.

Copies of Sacramental Certificates.  Would parents requesting a copy of the Sacramental Certificates of Baptism, Holy Communion, Confirmation etc please send an email to the Parish Office with all the details of your child, eg names of the child, parents, dates of birth and of the celebration of the Sacrament. A telephone call cannot give the whole picture of the request as most information is not taken.

Bible Study Starts Tuesday 2nd November. In the Parish Hall with Light Refreshments from 7.15pm to start at 7.30pm with a 30 min DVD shown followed by discussion. Jeff Cavins- Unlocking the Mystery of the Bible. It helps you to uncover the story woven throughout Scripture so you can get the big picture of the Bible and understand what it is all about.
