Musicians Wanted

At the 10.00am Mass on three Sundays in June, 8th, 15th and 22nd, we will be celebrating the sacraments of Confirmation and Eucharist with families and their children and we are short of musicians for these celebrations.
If you can play the guitar well enough to accompany the simple hymns they will sing (or any other instrument that will complement the singing) or if you can help in leading the singing, and you can be available for one or more of those Sunday Masses, please see Fr Chris or give your details to Annie in the Parish Office.
We’re also looking for musicians and singers to enhance the musical resources for all our Masses, so any volunteers available at other times will be most welcome, but our most urgent concern at present is those three Sunday mornings in June.


The Legion of Mary continue to hold their monthly Rosary on the 13th of every month from May to October. The Rosary starts at 7.30pm in St Swithins cemetery at the statue of Our Lady. Everyone is very welcome to join them.

Quarant ‘Ore

As last year we will be needing teams of Church Watchers for the 40 hour devotions. Each team should consist of three people. If you think you could help with this very important role or would like more information then please contact the office or Terry Graham. The opening Mass will be on Saturday 24th May at 6.00pm with devotions throughout the night until 9.30am when we will have a break to allow for Sunday Masses and Baptisms. The Forty Hours will then resume after the 6.00pm Mass on Sunday 25th May, continuing though until the closing Mass at 8.00pm on Monday 26th May.
