  Latest Newsletter - Sunday, 10th December 2017

Offertory Envelopes 2018 now ready for distribution – The Parish depends very much on the generosity of its Parishioners to finance the maintenance of all three Churches, associated buildings, Parish programmes and the support of the clergy. Every week you support this parish through your generous financial donations and we deeply appreciate your continued generosity and support. Many people use our pre-printed envelopes to make their contributions, others use direct debit, and others make a yearly contribution. For those who use the envelopes, they are now available for 2018 and we would appreciate if the distributers for the various areas of the Parish would call to the Presbytery, or make contact directly with the priest of your area so that the boxes can be delivered in good time for the coming year.
