Thought for the Week
"The trees are in their Autumn beauty,
The woodland paths are dry, under the October twilight,
The water mirrors a still sky."    (W.B.Yeats)


Readers and Eucharistic Ministers:  Lists of Readers and Eucharistic Ministers are being prepared for the coming Church Year which commences with the First Sunday of Advent 27th November 2016.   We would welcome and encourage more people, both young and older to have an active part in the celebration of the Eucharist as readers or Ministers of the Eucharist. In order to assist people to arrange a substitute, if they themselves are unavailable, it is hoped to add mobile numbers to the list.  The list would only be for distribution to Readers and Eucharistic Ministers. 

If you are willing to allow your number to appear on the list please text your name to Monica Tierney 0876854532.
