COMING TO CHURCH – COVID-
We are still learning to live with Covid 19. We will continue to make adjustments wherever we can and always with the safety of all our parishioners and visitors foremost.
WE REMEMBER IN OUR PRAYERS:
CATECHETICAL PROGRAMMES FOR 2021/2022:
We are are about to start catechetical programmes for First Holy Communion & Confirmation in late September/October 2021.
We are very grateful to our Stewards for their wonderful Ministry of Welcome. We will still need stewards to welcome people at the door as well as to help at the time for Holy Communion and also to collect the offertory at the end of Mass. If you feel you can help with this ongoing Ministry please contact Phil Butcher via 07777 663724 or email email@example.com
We are also very grateful to our Cleaners that make sure that our church is clean and ready to welcome you. If you would like to help with cleaning of the church you may either help with quick cleaning after each Mass or help with deeper cleaning on Friday after the Morning Mass.

If you are interested in hiring either of our halls or the committee room, please contact the Venue Manager via either 07709 000866 or email firstname.lastname@example.org

PARENT/CARER TODDLER GROUP:
Due to a number of reasons we have been unable to restart the group in September as we had hoped. However, we do hope to be able to recommence sessions again in the future but really do require volunteer helpers for this. The sessions are normally on a Monday in term time from 9.00 am to 12.00 noon. If you are able to offer help please contact either Phil or Kathy Butcher on 07777 663724.
Redbridge faith Forum will be holding its annual walk on Sunday 19th September.

This years theme is Faith, Water and the Climate Emergency.
