  • First Holy Communion The First Holy Communion Programme is soon to start again in the parish. If your child is in Year 3 and you feel that they are ready to start the programme this year, there will be an initial parents meeting at Bishop Ellis School on Tuesday 12th September at 6pm. The First Communion programme is organised both in the

    Parish and with the school. Even if your child attends another school and you want them to make their First Holy Communion in the parish you are still invited to this meeting. If you have an further questions please contact Fr Saji or Leanne Graham-Brown

    Parish Council Meeting Thank you to all who attended the Parish Council Meeting on the 18th August. Next Parish Council meeting on Wednesday 25th October at Sacred Heart.

    Retired Priests Fund £34,228.00 was our contributed figure we were asked to raise back in 2012. So far, we have only raised £13,600.67 (£9590.00 was in the last 2 years). We have to raise the outstanding balance of £20,627.33. We will continue holding second collections for this appeal. However, if you have any ideas – for example, sponsored walk, bike ride etc. and can offer yourself, or if you feel you can make a donation for this, please speak to Fr. Saji. The sooner we raise the balance, the sooner we can concentrate on other things.

If so, Fr. Anthony Pateman would like to hear from you: [email protected]
