Many Catholic homes have a "Red Box" to collect loose change for the

Missions through the Red Box scheme. The team of collectors is led by Mr Mike

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