This Easter we welcomed, Jill, Amy, Andrew and Chantelle in to full communion and in to our amazing church family.  Huge congratulations to you all, we hope you will continue to be an active part of our parish community as you carry on your journey.

We would also like to give thanks as ever to everyone involved in making our Vigil celebration and the whole of the Lenten Season such a huge success, there has been so much going on with something to offer everyone and loads of hard work has gone in across lots of different areas to make it all go so smoothly.  Without the engagement of so many such an active and vibrant parish would not be possible.

Huge thanks as ever to those who put so much time, effort and work into making such an impressive display.


In carrying out our mission our parish ministry falls into four distinct areas – all interrelated and interdependent and none of them being any more important than another. Each area of ministry needs the other three and each has something to give the other.  This is the dynamic of total parish ministry.

The four areas are: building a strong Christian Community, hearing and living the Gospel, sharing in the Eucharist and taking the Gospel message out into the wider world. The value of every activity is measured by whether or not it promotes the concept and fosters the experience of community.

So, what did we have to offer throughout our Journey to Easter this year?

1) Lively celebrations of Sunday Mass

2) Open Church mornings

3) Teaching sessions

4) Days of Reflection

5) Weekly soup lunches supporting CAFOD

6) St Patrick's Day Ceilidh

7) Passover Meal

8) Themed children's activities

9) Partnership Reconciliation Service

10) Celebration of the Easter Triduum


This is just a small example of the many efforts we make to build our community throughout the whole year and there are many more opportunities to get involved in different aspects of parish life.

Now that the Easter season has come to an end and we move forwards towards Pentecost are you prepared to join us in ensuring that we continue to be a vibrant and active parish community for the future?
