If you want to be an Altar Server and have made your First Holy Communion please get your parents to sign your name to the “sign up” sheet at the back of the church.

The Newsletter:

The newsletter will go on its summer holidays during August. If you have any “scoops” or winning lottery numbers there is only a couple of weekends to submit them for publication.


Nest weekend…Football might be coming home to St Mary’s:

Fr Peter writes: “I have bought a small table football game for the hall. I want to see if parishioners like it, and I hope it will be an added attraction for parish events and “after Mass refreshments”. If it is popular, I will invest in a stronger sturdy table game.”


The Church will be Open!

Fr Peter writes: “St Mary’s will now be open during the day time (except Wednesday’s and when I am on leave). The opening and closing times might be erratic to start with, but a notice outside will indicate when you can access the church. Please remember that the church (like all of the parish site) is covered by CCTV cameras.


Back to School Mass:

There will be a special 10am Mass on Sunday 8th September for children and young adults starting new schools or year groups or colleges. Please bring something new that you will use in your school or college.

Dear Parishioners,

I hope this message finds you well. I am writing to express my deepest gratitude for your hard work and dedication last Sunday.

Whether it was helping with the liturgy of Mass or setting up the parish centre, preparing the food, serving drinks, making a “Dom cake”, welcoming guests, or cleaning up afterwards, your efforts were gratefully appreciated.

The success of last Sunday is a testament to the strength and unity of our parish community. It was wonderful to see everyone come together, contributing their time and talents for the benefit of all.

However, please do not ask me to learn the trumpet! While it was wonderful to hear, that is a skill I am sure one or more of you have and as with the playing of any musical instruments is something which could enhance the celebration of Mass. I know Helen, Elizabeth, Raissa and the choir would agree. …..don’t hide your light under a tub……. please share your talents…………they are God given.

Once again, thank you for your hard work, dedication, and for making Fr Dom’s first Mass and reception a memorable one.

We are blessed to have such a vibrant and caring community (even if we lament that we do not have a trumpet player……yet)!

May God bless you all for your kindness and generosity.

Fr Peter
