It’s been a big time of reflection lately as our Liturgy Group, our Family Groups and Synod listening has been in full swing. It’s been so good to see people coming together and working together for the benefit of the parish community. Threaded through everything we do in a parish community is always a sense of welcome. You may have noticed some cards we had left out on the pews for Pentecost Sunday with a small piece of scripture and a challenge; “how can I enrich and enlighten our Parish and how can our Parish enrich and enlighten me?”. Starting our Liturgy Group and Family Groups is an open door for people to be enriched and enlightened in our Parish community. Everyone is welcome, so please contact me if you ever think you’d like to be more involved and I’ll be very happy to talk with you.
Family Groups. A reminder that the next Star Family Group activity is a picnic in the gardens opposite the Royal Hotel in Crosby Waterloo on Saturday 13th July at 1pm. All welcome.
Please note there is no Friday 10am Mass and no coffee morning this Friday 29th June 2019, due to the Year 2 Retreat day. 10am Mass and the coffee morning will resume the following Friday.
