ALL ARE WELCOME
Please take a look inside Our Church.
We hope you'll find a friendly and very active Catholic Community,
one that you'll be happy to belong to and to participate in.
But most of all, we hope you'll be able to encounter God's presence.
This is the Source and Summit of all that we are and all that we do.

THE PARISH CENSUS
Next week-end you will be invited to complete a census form for yourself and your family members. We are hoping that the majority of parishioners will do this online, and instructions about doing this will be available next week. Parishioners will receive a paper version of the Census form to see what information is being requested. This can be completed and handed to the welcomers at the back of the church for those of you not completing the form online. In addition to helpers who will be available to give information and practical assistance, there will be some laptops and helpers in Hartley Hall after each of the Masses for the next 2 week-ends. Arrangements are also being made to come along to the Diamond Club over the next few weeks and enter census details for members from Holy Cross Parish.
Finally KEEP CALM, the Census process will continue during July and we hope to let you know how it’s going through the Newsletter. (About 800 people come to Mass each week, so we will have a figure to aim at!)
Thank you to all the Readers and Special Ministers for their support in updating the Rota’s. We plan to launch the new Rota’s on the week-end of 30 June / 1st July and will use the opportunity to introduce new Readers and Special Ministers. Watch this space!
