OTHER MINISTRIES AND VOLUNTEERS

Altar Flower Arrangers
A team of ladies who arrange the flowers to decorate the Church for Sundays, Funerals and Weddings, led by Mrs Pat Spurgeon

APF Red Box Collectors
Many Catholic homes have a "Red Box" to collect loose change for the Association for the Propagation of the Faith (APF) the Catholic Church's main Missionary support agency. Each year this parish raises about £4,000 for the Missions through the Red Box scheme. The team of collectors is led by Mr Mike Conlon.

Baptism Team
Some parishioners are involved in welcoming and assisting families preparing for the Baptism of their children; they help in the First Friday Baptism Preparation Meetings, and become familiar faces to families who are new to our Parish.

Child Protection Representatives
As with every Catholic Parish we have representatives who ensure that the Child Protection Guidelines are followed.

Church Cleaning
A Church doesn't clean itself! We are grateful for the help of dedicated teams who set about the place each week and keep it spick and span

Gardens & Maintenance
Not that we have a lot of gardens! Nevertheless we have regular volunteers do a wonderful job of keeping everything spick and span! Thanks for all the work in sun and rain, gents!

Piety Stall
We run a small Piety Stall in the porch, offering Catholic cards and other items. If you have any requests for items or ideas for the Piety Stall, please let us know.

Pro-Life Link
As a Catholic Parish we support pro-life initiatives, mainly through organisations such a SPUC and LIFE.

School Foundation Governors
Several parishioners fulfil a vital role by being Foundation Governors at our Primary School. For more details, please check out the School Page.

Tuesday Coffee Morning Team
For some years now we have offered refreshments after Tuesday morning Mass - this has taken on a life of its own, with the groups celebrating birthdays, Christmas and Easter specials and much more. The friendly atmosphere and variety of goodies on offer attract a large number - not just to the refreshments but to Mass too! It's mainly thanks to the work of Dolores Scully that the Tuesday mornings are so successful.
