Corpus Christi

                        O Jesus, since You have left us a remembrance of Your Passion beneath the veils of this Sacrament, grant us, we pray, so to venerate the sacred mysteries of Your Body and Blood that we may always enjoy the fruits of Your Redemption, for You live and reign forever. Amen

Fr John Mulligan’s Memorial Mass

GIFTS and TALENTS Monday 1st July 7.30pm Hartley Hall.
Did you enjoy using your gifts and talents for the benefit of others during Lent? Would you like to broaden that experience? Since Lent 2015 our parish has been exploring ways as a community, of coming closer to God through Stewardship. It starts with Gratitude for all the gifts that God has given us, then we look to develop our Gifts and Talents before sharing them with others.
Perhaps you have reached that stage in your life where you would like to share your gifts and talents with others for the benefit of your parish and wider community? Then why not come along on Monday 1st July at 7.30pm in Hartley Hall, to hear how you can contribute your talents and gifts within and beyond your parish community. There will be opportunities to find out where you can best use your Time, Talent and Treasure for the benefit of others. Bring a friend.
