DANCE LIKE NOBODY IS WATCHING
…and that is exactly what they did! Well done to the TTT group who facilitated a Morris dancing workshop in the parish car park. There were lots of newcomers and even the neighbours were curious. You are bearing fruit!
If you want to know more about this group please email firstname.lastname@example.org
CATECHISTS GET TOGETHER.
All Catechists are invited to the annual get together on 16th July. Do you help with Children’s Liturgy, the Baptism Programme, First Communion, Confirmation, RCIA? Then save the date and come along. If you are at the School Leaver’s Production come along afterwards.
This will be our last chance to meet together as a group of Catechists with Fr Doug
THE REPOSITORY SHOP
…will be closed for a while during church alterations.
If you wish to purchase a Catholic newspaper or magazine please ask the Mass Stewards – Phil, Joe or John.
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!)
READERS AND EXTRAORDINARY MINISTERS OF THE EUCHARIST
New Rota’s will start from next week. There are still a number of vacancies especially for the 11.30am Mass. If you would like to offer yourself for one of these Ministries please give the Parish Office your details.
