Celebrating Service in our Parish

During the months of June and July we are holding a series of Masses and social gatherings to celebrate different areas of service and ministry in our parish community. Although the coordinators of each ministry have been asked to pass on invitations these are not exclusive events, and are open to all who wish to come and show their support, encouragement and appreciation for these ministries. This is also a chance for all of us to think about what we can offer our parish community. Each week, I will include a reflection on the particular theme in that week’s newsletter. A huge thank you to all who do so much for our community, often unseen. Remember you do it for the Lord, and whatever we do out of love is pleasing to him!
