OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST, KING OF THE UNIVERSE
NATIONAL YOUTH SUNDAY SECOND COLLECTION WEEKEND OF 24th – 25th NOVEMBER. There will be a second collection this weekend in all Masses for National Youth Sunday which helps young people who struggle financially in our Diocese, as well as helping towards other costs so that we may continue to share the Good News of Jesus Christ amongst young people.
NOVEMBER DEAD LIST- November is the month when we remember our dearly departed. We remember them and pray for them out of gratitude for all they did and were for us. We remember all those who, down the years by their faith, their Christian witness, their heroic deeds of self-sacrifice have inspired countless others to give more of themselves in service to God and humanity. Envelopes are available for the names of our deceased loved ones. Place the envelopes in the box provided by the altar. There are Masses booked for the month of November: See Mass Intentions.

Do come and share in this event.
