CAFOD and Live Simply 

Recently the Cafod team have, with Fr Rob’s support, taken the decision to work towards becoming a LiveSimply Community. Our primary school, St Dunstan’s,  has already achieved the LiveSimply award so many families will be familiar with this.

The LiveSimply award is an opportunity for Catholic communities to respond to Pope Francis’ invitation in Laudato Si’ to “work with generosity and tenderness in protecting this world which God has entrusted to us”. (quoted from the Cafod website).

As a Parish, we hope to work together to show that its members are striving to follow a more simple lifestyle, to live in solidarity with people in poverty and live more sustainably with creation.

Take a look at our Advent calendar, which has a different suggestion each day for living a greener and more climate friendly lifestyle. You can access this calendar using the following link:

Discover a new challenge each day from 1st December.

CARE MASS  cancelled for the time being

Every now and then we may be called upon to take on the role of “carer”. Our regular Care Mass is held on a Sunday afternoon and is a time for families to come together, carers and those needing care, to celebrate Mass in a relaxed atmosphere. There is a tea party following Mass giving us the opportunity of sharing and supporting one another.

SENIOR LUNCH CLUB 

Resumed in November 2022. The next lunch is Tuesday 10th January 2023.

HOLY HOURS  cancelled for the time being

We have decided to continue having a Holy Hour (normally on the 1st Monday of each month but check the Newsletter) with different focuses for our prayer.
