Fr Terry sez: Occasionally things are given to me for bazaar etc which might bring a better price on eBay. Is there anyone who is an authorized seller who would like to give this a try? All proceeds to the parish.
Fr Terry has decided to try and out-Trump Donald Trump. Fr Terry is trying to compose a Tweet each day with a spiritual message in 140 characters. He would love it if you followed him on @anamnesiskyriou (which means, in Greek, Remembering the Lord)
Ramp and lawn
The new ramp is now open! It provides smooth and easy access to the main door of the parish centre. However, until railings are installed we still need to ask children not to play on the lawn. We ask for and very much appreciate parents’ cooperation in this matter. Many thanks.
