St. Vincent de Paul Annual Collection

The annual collection for the St Vincent de Paul will take place, to replace the Share collection, at masses this weekend 7th and 8th December 2019. This collection forms a key part of the income of the local conference, and allows us to give assistance at Christmas time and through the year to local families in need. Your contribution is an expression of your care for the poor, and is very much appreciated.

Carol Service St. Martins Church

We would like to invite you all to our Carol Service on Sunday 15th December at 6pm.

Meeting for rehearsals @ 4pm in St. Martins.

Liturgy of the Word

A Liturgy of the Word with scripture readings, prayer and reflection will continue during the immediate future as follows:

Mondays St Martin de Porres Church 10.00am

Wednesdays Holy Rosary Church 10.00am

Thursdays St Anne’s Church 10.00am

The Liturgy of the Word facilitates people to reflect and pray together, aware of the presence of Jesus as they gather. They listen to his word in the Scriptures, and respond to what they hear. Jesus promises that ‘where two or three people come together in my name I am there among them.’
