Thank you to all who sponsored the staff on their Big Sleep out to raise funds for Cornerstone Centre for the Homeless. I have been able to send a cheque for £535-00.


Society for the protection of unborn children. Josie Nickson has been the parish representative for many years but now wishes, due to age and health, to pass the mantle to someone younger. If you are willing to be the parish representative, please let Fr. Glover know. It isn’t onerous and involves receiving and distributing the quarterly newsletter and bringing to your attention any petitions they may distribute.


We are now starting to gather items for the summer fayre. Please bring to Church over the next week items for the Good as New & Bric a Brac.

Raffle Prizes. The list is on the board in the narthex, please sign up if you wish to donate one of the prizes. Tickets will be available from next weekend for you to buy and take for others to buy.


There will be a short meeting about the Summer Fayre after the 10.30am Mass next Sunday in the Parish Hall. If you usually or want to man a stall at the fayre on 6th July or would like to help in any other way, please come along to that meeting. Tea, Coffee & biscuits will be provided.


Candles. The Catholic Church Insurers have made us aware of several fires taking place inside churches due to misuse of candles. They warn against leaving candles burning when no one is in church, lighting candles on or against inflammable materials such as curtains or carpets. We need to be diligent ion ensuring that the paschal and altar candles are extinguished at the end of services and we do not light candles on carpets or near hangings. As we place votive candles in pricket stands these may be left to burn out as we leave church but, please, please, please, do not place a votive candle on top of the plastic container of a spent candle, as the empty plastic container does melt and can catch fire. Please put the spent plastic container into the receptacle provided under the pricket stand, then place your votive candle on the vacated disc.


Monday 27th May St Joseph’s cemetery Mass at 11.00am. If wet the mass will be in St. Dunstan’s Church.


First Holy Communion Cards and gifts are now available from the piety stall.


Divine Mercy Devotions on the third Sunday of the month at 3.00pm


The lists for Candles at the shrines for 2019 are on the notice board in the Narthex. The candles cost £5 each and burn for a week. If you wish to nominate any for a loved one or specific intention, please place your donation in an envelope and give it to Fr. Glover with a note of which shrine you would like the candle lit at and the intention for which it is to be lit.

The Rosary is recited in Our Lady’s chapel following the 9.00am Mass on Wednesday.

St. Anne’s Book of Remembrance. At the Noon Mass on the first Saturday of each month I shall place “The Book of Remembrance” on the altar and the Mass will be offered for the souls of all those whose names are contained in the book. If you wish the name/s of members of your family recording in the book, please complete one of the slips that are available in the Narthex and return it to Fr. Glover with your donation. This will mean that your loved ones will be remembered at Mass each month, in addition to the masses you would normally ask to be offered on their anniversary or in memory of their birthday.

Entered in the book of remembrance under number:

Going into hospital? Don’t forget to inform Fr. Glover on 740 2448 who will advise the Catholic Chaplain or call the chaplain Fr. Matus on 834 4104.

Places in our school. It is essential that any catholic parent who wishes their child to have a place at our school registers them as soon as possible. PLEASE DO NOT WAIT UNTIL YOUR CHILD IS READY TO GO TO SCHOOL as you may find a place isn’t available. If you haven’t registered your child even if a place is available your child’s name and offer of a place will not have been passed to the local education authority by the school and subsequently a place at a non-Catholic school may be given.


Prayer Group Monday 7.30pm until 8.30pm.


The Candle at the Shrine of Our Lady of Perpetual Succour burns as a silent prayer for John Bradley Anniversary.
