Hospitality Team

Some of the team are no longer able to help so it would be good to have some new volunteers to assist when they could. If you feel able to help at future events please put your name, telephone number or email address on the list at the back of the church or you can phone Cath Line on 722 3286.

In case you missed it - here is the article from January's BE Alive on the Hospitality Team

The Hospitality Team was formed after the parish awakening day in order to help the people of the parish to celebrate special feasts and events in the life of the parish community. We also aim to welcome visitors or new people to the parish. Light refreshments are usually served in the hall while providing the opportunity for people to meet, chat and celebrate together. Some of the events we have celebrated so far have been the Golden Jubilees of two of the clergy, special birthdays, feast days, the summer garden party and of course the Christmas Carol Services where people enjoy the mulled wine and mince pies and the chance to wish friends a happy Christmas.

I usually do the shopping for the events along with Sue Timmis and I then call on a team of volunteers to help serve the refreshments and tidy up afterwards. Some of the team are no longer able to help so it would be good to have some new volunteers to assist when they could. If you feel able to help at future events I would be grateful if you could put your name, telephone number or email address on a list

I will leave at the back of the church or you can ring me on 722 3286. Thank you. Catherine Line, Co-ordinator for the Hospitality Team

RYM: Dates for your diary (from Natasha)

Tuesday 23rd Jan - We're going to Animate's "Life and Soul" 

An hour of prayer and praise before the Blessed Sacrament. I've heard these are really popular and awe-inspiring so thought we'd give it a try. It's at St Charles church in Aigburth - get in touch for bus/lift details. It's at the earlier time of 7pm - get there on time as it only lasts an hour! Then afterwards we'll go to get a drink locally. 

Saturday 3rd Feb - 4pm - sign language session at St Mary's church hall.

We'll spend an hour learning the Lord's prayer and a few Mass responses, and then go to Mass together (5:30 vigil at St Mary's) and sign together! When we signed a hymn last time there were a few tears from parishioners!!

Tuesday 6th Feb - RYM comes home -

Yes, we'll be back in the Fisher More hall for an informative talk by a priest on Confession, with a focus on the Redemptorist motto "with Him there is plentiful redemption". We'll have a discussion and reflection - not to be missed, this will lead us in to Lent nicely!
