PASTORAL LETTER

NEXT SUNDAY: is World Mission Sunday, when the Holy Father invites all Catholics to contribute to a special collection for Missio, his charity for world mission. Please support Missio in helping missionaries to work alongside communities throughout the world that are poor or in need, regardless of their background or belief.

CHURCH CONSTRUCTION WORKS:  The first phase of the works on the Church will start on Monday 4th November and will last for approximately four weeks. This work is to repair the structural faults in the fabric of the building. Due to the nature of this and subsequent works there will be occasional restrictions to the access and use of the Church and the meeting room. Because of the implications of the works it is important that we know ALL who may access the Church/Meeting room during this time. Can ALL group organisers and any individuals who access the Church/Meeting room please contact Alex in the Parish office no later than Monday 21st October so we can collate details and discuss the implications accordingly. It is envisaged that phase 2, the reordering of the Sanctuary and Baptistry will take place in the period between Christmas and Easter, so as not to affect either of these important Feasts. Phase 3, painting, will follow when the Sanctuary is complete. As the works progress there will be some parking restrictions, particularly, during the week (Monday to Friday), and we will manage this on a day to day basis. MASSES WILL NOT BE AFFECTED. Details of further phases of the work will follow. Thank you for your patience and co-operation.
