My Dear Friends,

Today is the last week of our parish Stewardship Campaign and I would like to thank everyone for their prayerful response to this vital issue in the life of our parish family. Thank you, in particular, for your help and forbearance this weekend with the filling out of the pledge cards. Naturally it will take a little time to assess the success of our campaign, but hopefully we will have made a significant start to securing the financial future of our parish.

This can be a very stressful time of the year for many parents, for it is now that important decisions about their children's Secondary education have to be made.

This is no easy matter for, as practising Catholics we must examine very carefully the emphasis we place on furthering our children's Catholic education.

To help us think about this issue Mr Martin Rainsford, a senior Catholic Head teacher, has been invited to visit us next weekend. He has already spoken to the congregations at the Sacred Heart and at St Thomas More. I feel sure that all of us will wish to hear what he has to say and will be glad of his advice.

God Bless.

CONFIRMATION 2013

Those wishing to make their Confirmation next year and who are now in Year 9 at school are invited to collect a form from Fr. Dennis after Mass. Please note that only the candidates themselves may pick up a form and applications will NOT be accepted after 30th October.
