We are looking for volunteers (male or female) to join our team of church cleaners, affectionally known as ‘The Holy Scrubbers”. The team meet each Thursday morning after the 9.00am mass and spend an hour or so vacuuming and polishing the church. There is also plenty of time for chatting and a cuppa. So why not come along and join our amazing team who help to keep out church looking tidy and clean. A warm welcome and lots of laughter await. For more information please speak to Fr Bruce.


This is the last week of Little Church before they break for the Summer. Many thanks to our catechists and their helpers for all their care and hard work with our children. Little Church begins its new term on Sunday, 4th September. Enjoy your Holidays!


There will be a meeting of Eucharistic Ministers in the Fr O’Reilly Room at 7.00pm on Monday, 15th July.​


I’m sure you are all aware that finding holiday cover for masses is becoming more and more difficult. Thankfully Maureen has been able to find cover for our masses in August to allow Fr Bruce to have a break away from the parish. We will however, be reducing the number of masses during August as follows.

Saturday - 6.30pm Mass

Sunday - 10.00am Mass

Monday - 9.00am Mass

Wednesday - 9.00am Mass

Thursday - 9.00am Mass

The Music Group also take their annual leave in August so most masses will be said.

Mass times will return to normal on Sunday 1st September.


Fr Bruce is thinking of starting up a monthly men’s group from the autumn. It would meet during the week and offer a chance for a chat, a sandwich and a drink or two and maybe a game of cards. If you would be interested then please add your name to the list in the sacristy or speak to Alan (server/eucharistic minister). Thank you .
