  1. The month of May in the Catholic Church, is the month dedicated to Our Blessed Mother Mary. There will be recitation of the Holy Rosary, 30 mins before Mass throughout the month of May. We encourage parishioners to recite the Rosary at home also.
  2. Please place in the box at the back of Church your completed Parish Questionnaire as they will be collected this week. If you haven’t completed a questionnaire please do so and return it as soon as possible. Thank you.
  3. At this time some of our children in St Mary’s and St Richard’s are receiving the Sacrament of Holy Communion for the first time. We extend our congratulations to all the children. Please pray for these children and their families at this important time.
  4. We also welcome Cora and Keeva who were baptised in St Marys on 5.5.24 and Sofia Rose who was baptised last weekend. Again please pray for them and their families.
  5. Donations for the summer fair can be left at the back of Church after any Mass. If anyone requires help to get donations to the church please contact the Parish office.  The summer fair will be held on 30th June after 11am Mass in St Mary’s Hall.
  6. Next Parish Council Meeting will be held on 22.5.24 in the meeting room in the presbytery at 6.30pm
  7. Fr Kris will celebrate 25 years in the priesthood on 3rd of July. As a parish we hope to organise a celebration for him, therefore for the next few weeks a 2nd collection will be held in order to raise some funds to help pay for the celebration. Hopefully we will have a parish collection for Fr Kris the weekend of 22nd/23rd June. More information will follow regarding the celebration in the next couple of weeks.


Pope’s Intention for May: For the Formation of the Church, vocations, the right use of the media, the Church and human work.

Let us pray that men and women religious and seminarians, grow in their own vocational journey through human, pastoral, spiritual and community formation, that leads then to be credible witnesses to the Gospel.

Have a good week everyone
