Age Concern Retirement night 3rd May
Retirement night for Rose and Ann in St Martins Hall on 3rd May. Entertainment by Eileen, buffet and bar. Append names on list at the back of church.
 
FFC Meeting
The main topic of discussion was fundraising for the maintenance of our three parish buildings: house, church and hall. In particular we are pursuing quotes for work required on the flat roofs of the church. We discussed a three-year extra fundraising plan for repair and maintenance: starting with a Race Night on the 13th October.
 
Hall Help!  
The hall provides a vital source of income which helps pay for maintenance work in the parish. It is important that we keep the hall open and I am therefore appealing for more people to come forward and help. Please speak to Fr Anthony or Margaret McCallion. “Many Hands make Light Work!”.

Our parish Primary 4 schoolchildren will celebrate their first Holy Communion on Sunday 20th May at 10am Mass.

Please remember these children in your prayers as they journey with us to the Lord’s Table.
