Volunteers Your attendance and participation at services and parish events is really valued and appreciated. Our joint involvement and that cooperation, togetherness and participation cements us as a community. Please consider volunteering, even if you can only help on an ad hoc basis. As the saying goes ‘many hands make light work’

Church cleaners help keep our church pleasant and comfortable. If you are able to lend a hand on Saturdays from 10.00 a.m. Your help is very much appreciated.

Refreshments (Sunday after 9.00 a.m. & 10.30 a.m. Mass) bring us all together to relax and socialise after services.
