PARISH BULLETIN: Assistance is needed to update the bulletin. This is just a Microsoft Word document which is amended each week to reflect changes in the diary of services/meetings and any notices of interest to our parish community.

If you think you can help please speak to either Fr Andy or Susan Bekisz.
