We are not always able to advertise events in the bulletin but will endeavour to place all posters on the parish notice board. If there is no space in the bulletin it is possible to advertise the event on the website, but to do so the event details and/or poster needs to be in electronic form. Please e-mail such information to the parish office and send a copy to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Prior to August 2017 all Priests of the Archdiocese were under strict instructions not to write references to support applications for any school, Catholic or non-Catholic. The only information that could be given was details of Baptism.

There was a change to the guidance in August 2017 when Fr. Tim issued the following statement

Certificates of Religious Practice for Faith Schools

I understand that the Archdiocese has revised its position with regard to these references and left it to the discretion of the parish priest. I have resolutely followed the previous diocesan policy that I should give only factual information regarding the reception of the sacraments, which protects me from the potential conflict of having to determine what is meant by religious practice and therefore I do not intend to start giving personal testimonials now.

If particular schools are willing to accept others as referees, then there is nothing I can do about that, but I insist that such references DO NOT carry any form of official approval from the parishes for which I am responsible: e.g. parish letter-headed notepaper or an official stamp.

offertory donations can be by means of standing orders, or weekly donations using planned giving envelopes.

If you don't currently Gift Aid your donation and would like to do so, please pick up a form from the porch, complete it and hand it into the parish office.

Please give at least one month's notice for any Mass Intentions requested for particular dates.

The Mass intentions will be displayed in the church porch in large print, they will also appear on the parish website. 

Please note that a Requiem Mass takes precedence over a specific Mass Intention.

Please pass on details to one of the priests of anyone known to you in the parish who would benefit from this provision. 

If you are expecting to have to recuperate from an illness or operation, let the parish office know in advance so you can be added to the list.
