FIRST HOLY COMMUNION 2023:

Registration for First Holy Communion Programme will begin in September 2022.  It will be necessary to produce your child’s Baptismal Certificate. To have your child registered you will need to make an appointment to see Fr Slawek in September. More details after the summer break.


CONFIRMATION 2023:

Registration for Confirmation Programme will also start in September. If you are a regular church goer, belong to St. Cedd’s Parish, are 14 at the beginning of the programme and would like to make your Confirmation in 2023 you will need to make an appointment to see Fr Marek in September to be enrolled. More details after the summer break.


NEW ALTAR SERVERS:

If you have made your First Communion and wish to start training as an altar server, please collect Registration Form from the sacristy, complete it and return it to the Presbytery. Training will start in September.


MINISTERS OF HOLY COMMUNION:

If you are a Minister of Holy Communion and are both willing and able to return to this ministry, please drop an email to the Parish Office (goodmayes@dioceseofbrentwood.org) also indicate which Mass you are willing to serve at.


MINISTERS OF THE WORD (READERS):

We require more people to read at Mass. If you feel that you would like to help with this important ministry then please contact the Parish Office (goodmayes@dioceseofbrentwood.org). In addition it would help if you could advise which Mass you normally attend.


CLEANING OF THE CHURCH:

If you would like to help with cleaning of the church simply come for or after our Morning Mass on Friday and come to the Sacristy.


ST CEDD’S PARISH HALLS:

If you are interested in hiring either of our halls or the committee room, please contact the Venue Manager via either 07777 663724 or email hallsbooking@btconnect.com


REPOSITORY:

Our repository in the lower hall is open on Sundays after 11am Mass. Should you require anything in the meantime please contact Kathy Butcher via 07777663724.


SAINT CEDD’S CATHOLIC CLUB (OPENING HOURS):


SAINT CEDD’S CATHOLIC CLUB:

Music on the last Saturday of the month in Lower Hall. From 8:00 to 11:00; Admission £5:


ST CEDD’S CATHOLIC CLUB:

Our Club was founded shortly after the parish was formed over 50 years ago. It was formed to support both the fellowship and social activities of the Parish. Over the years the Club has provided solid financial support for the Parish along with providing a safe and warm environment for many social activities. Sadly, over the past two years the Club attendance has declined to the point where its very existence is now in question. The Directors have been meeting regularly since January and are of the opinion that, given the right level of support, the situation can be turned around. They have decided that the circumstances will be reviewed regularly and a final decision will be taken in early September. If confidence in the Club’s situation cannot be restored then we will have no alternative but to close. The Club is open to all but sadly very few parishioners make use of the facilities. There are some events programmed over the next months but unless they and the Club in general are supported then this will inevitably impact on the future of the Club and also the impact on our Parish. For more information on how you can support the Club, please contact Josie O’Brien (josephine_obrien@hotmail.co.uk) or Nellie Singh (singhellen89@gmail.com).


BINGO IN THE LOWER HALL:

Bingo sessions will resume on the 14th September after the Summer break.
