PARISH SHOWCASE CELEBRATION on 19 /20 November Feast of Christ the King. This is being organised by the parish pastoral team. The main purpose of the event is to showcase as many of the activities which take place in the parish to as many people as possible. There is so much to celebrate and to thank God for. If the event also encourages others to be involved and use their gifts, then this can only be a good thing too!This weekend there will be special boards (lightweight and not too big) to collect from the sacristy for your group to prepare a small display. The pastoral team are happy to answer any questions and to help. Just have a word with one of us.
