  • Advent: What are we waiting for?

    All are welcome to a series of 15 minute talks by Fr Tony starting immediately after 12 noon Mass on the following dates:
    Friday 27th November: The Season of Advent & the Promise of God,
    Friday 11th December: New beginnings (Luke 1),
    Friday 18th December: Christ is born in Bethlehem (Luke 2),


    On Sunday 29th November at 4.00pm there will be a short Prayer Service in Church. Our prayers and thoughts will be for all those caught up in the Refugee Crisis.
    Please come and join us, for approximately 30 – 40 minutes. It is difficult to know how we can solve such a problem but our prayers will surely be of value.

  • 200 Club Winners for November

    Congratulations to the following who were winners in the latest 200 club draw: D & C Caldwell, Mary Morris, Mary O’Byrne & Margaret Kitson. The December draw will take place on Saturday 19th December.


    Our Christmas Fair takes place this Saturday at St Christopher’s school, staring at 12. noon. We will have all the usual stalls, Lunches and Refreshments will be available, and Father Christmas will be making an appearance too.
    Thank you to all who have generously donated items so far. In this week before the fair could we have a real push on for donations, especially for our Tombola stalls, new & unwanted Gifts and Cakes. Also, any sold or unsold raffle tickets can be brought back on the day of the fair.
    We look forward to seeing as many people at the fair this Saturday to make it a huge success. There will be a small amount of car parking available in the school playground.

  • St Christopher Centre Christmas Day Dinner

    If there are parishioners or anyone you know who finds Christmas difficult e.g. living alone, lonely, or in material need, they are welcome to join us for a Christmas Day dinner in our new Centre. I would be grateful if the members of the SVP and Eucharistic Ministers who visit the sick and housebound could let me have the names of those who would like to attend. Please put names in a sealed envelope addressed to Fr Michael or Fr Tony and either hand to the clergy directly or post through the presbytery letterbox.
    Thank you. Fr Michael


    on Sunday 20th December. More information will follow in the weekly newsletters and on the website..
