Meeting Parish Pastoral Support Team:We are continuing to form a new 'Pastoral outreach Team' in order to best serve the needs of members of our community who are in any kind of need or distress. Please note that a meeting for the team will take place in St Saviour’s at 7pm Thursday 19th January 2017. If you are interested in being involved please come along to this meeting.
Primary Schools:Please note that on Tuesday morning our 9.15am Mass will return to St Mary’s Primary School. Also on Thursday morning at 9.30am Holy Mass will be held in St Saviour's Primary School. As always all are welcome to attend.
Our Lady of Fatima Celebrations 1917-2017:This year the Church celebrates the centenary of the apparitions of the Angel of Peace and Our Blessed Lady to the children in Fatima. The message of Fatima has much to say to us today and we hope to reflect on this during 2017. On behalf of the people of our combined parish we intend to erect a statue of Our Lady of Fatima in the grounds of St Mary of the Angels Church. Ideally this will be in place by the Feast Day of 13th May. One of our parishioners has also kindly volunteered to create a painting related to the apparitions of Fatima, this is to be located in St Mary of the Angel’s Primary School. We are very grateful for donations already given to make the purchase and placing of the statue possible. If anyone has any fund raising ideas in support of this venture, please speak with Fr Louis, Deacon Tony or a member of the Parish Formation Team.
Car Park Extension and possible re-ordering of Sanctuary at St Mary’s:During recent consultations with the diocese it has been agreed that the current car parking space at St Mary’s is inadequate for our current needs and future plans. The first proposed phase of extending our carpark around the existing presbytery grounds should begin soon. The work will provide a much needed improvement in this area of parish life. A meeting has also been held with the ‘Diocesan Historic Churches Commission’ concerning the sanctuary and certain proposals for improvement have been put forward. A meeting to explain and discuss the proposals will take place in Stanley Hall on Tuesday 24th January at 6.00pm. All are welcome.
