PARISH NEWS

St Saviour & St Mary of the Angels’ Parish SVP:

At our Sunday Masses last weekend a retiring collection was taken to support the work of our SVP. Many thanks for your continued support as we seek to offer support to those in our parish & community who are most in need.

Apology for noise from Social Club during Vigil Mass at St Saviour’s:

Recently the noise levels (music & shouting) coming from the social club have disrupted the sanctity of our Saturday Vigil Mass. This problem seem to have become worse and we have already and continue to draw this to the attention of the appropriate diocesan authority. A number of parishioners have made comments concerning this disruption and please be assured that we are trying to resolve the issue. Fr Louis & Deacon Tony

Car Parking at St Saviour’s:

Once again we ask that all parishioners park with due regard to access and safety in our car park and the streets surrounding the church. The importance of keeping the access and exit points clear was highlighted two weeks ago when one of our parish family took seriously ill as she arrived for the Sunday morning Mass. This situation required two Emergency Vehicles to gain rapid access to the car park. We are aware that last Sunday morning a family delivering items to the Social Centre for a children’s party also completely blocked the exit to the car park with their van. This matter is also being addressed. Fr Louis & Deacon Tony

Funeral Plans Regarding Order of Service at St Saviour & St Mary of the Angels Parish:

We know that this is a very sensitive matter and that few of us like to talk about it.  However, in order to ensure that your wishes are followed concerning your funeral service, Fr Louis & Deacon Tony strongly advise that you clearly record your thoughts and instructions. In order to assist in this, a document is now available to you from the parish. You are invited to take a document home and when it is completed return it to the parish where it will be stored securely. There is recorded on this document the option of making an appointment with Fr Louis or Deacon Tony if you wish to discuss the matter. Please do take one of these documents with you from church.
