collecting names of those who would like to travel by coach to Brighton on
5th July for the Diocesan Jubilee Mass.)
Don’t forget to come and celebrate Mothers’ Day after the 9.00 am and
11.00 Masses today - 15th March. There will be a cake sale (with a book
sale at St Ambrose too.)
“Gardening Club” if you think one of the borders in the
church grounds looks like it needs a bit of TLC or a bush could
do with a haircut, or a few bulbs could cheer up generations of
people to come... or that the plants look desperate for a drink,
don’t think you need permission to do something about it. Do
feel free to bring your secateurs along or pull up an offending
weed. Why not bring a friend and a thermos and make it a bit
of an outing? Make a lasting difference to the beauty of our
church. Only rules: no harmful substances to be applied and
don’t do anything unsafe to you or others.
