Sadly it has just been discovered that the rot caused by a blocked downpipe has spread into a considerable part of the Sacristy area of the Church and the Parish Centre.
This is going to be expensive to cure and put right. You have been most generous in your financial support of the Parish. Please keep it up or even, if it is possible increase it.
[ May 25, 2012; 10:30 am; ] Fr Chris would like to meet anyone who comes from another country THIS Friday 25th May to discuss ways of contacting those from other countries who have, in our irreligious, country ceased to take an active part in our Faith.
