Feb 28 – Parish Council
Mass serving in the sanctuary is a special privilege and honour. We serve not only our Lord, who made heaven and earth, but also God’s holy people. Our next training session for beginners is at 3.30pm on Saturday 29 February, beginning with refreshments in the hall. As we journey, in faith and friendship with Jesus, towards the beautiful ceremonies of Holy Week and Easter there are many tasks for the Altar Server. We look forward to welcoming you.
