The annual Parish Finance Meeting takes place after Mass today.  Everyone is welcome.

On Tuesday at 7.00 pm there will be a meeting in the presbytery to review the progress of all who volunteered last year to undertake responsibility for some aspect of the parish’s life.

It would be a kindness if all Christmas wreaths could be removed from graves (and preferably disposed of off-site) by the end of February; thereafter, they will be removed without further notice.
