PLEASE NOTE: the Church may be closed from time to time for security reasons, so don’t be surprised if you find it thus. We are lucky we can have the Church open most of the time. We shouldn’t expect to find it open all the time, but it is open most days. Fr Ken

ST. GEORGE’S DAY QUIZ:  It was a superb evening. Thanks go to all who supported in so many ways, especially those who made generous donations.

Heartful thanks to David and Alison Borrett for all their fantastic quiz questions. We raised the grand total of £985.00 and altogether, I am able to transfer £900.00 to Sister Immaculata at the Maternity Unit and £300.00 to Sister Yacinta towards the running costs of the Children’s Home.  In her latest email Sister Immaculata said that she is praying for you all, that God may bless you.  What an amazing Community and Parish we live in.  I have already taken an order for a table for 8 at the next Quiz in November!  Thank you so much.      Mary Wilshin
