Support Services

Parish Office

Mrs Josie Ryder

The administrative hub of the parish is the Parish Office which is located in the Presbytery. It is manned between the hours of 10am and 3pm by Mrs Josie Ryder (Parish Secretary) on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays and by Mrs Tanya Wilkins (Finance Officer) on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Together they deal with many aspects of parish administration, and make appointments for parishioners to be visited by the Parish Priest. They deal with the day-to-day finance of the parish and with the printing of the Newsletter and other publications. They will also help you to make arrangements if you wish to have a Mass said for a particular intention.


After Mass Refreshments

Volunteers are constantly required to help in the kitchen with the preparation and service of Teas, Coffees and refreshments after the 6pm Mass on Saturdays and after the 11am Mass on Sundays. It is hoped to attract enough volunteers to form a group willing to commit to provide this service on a rota basis so that the workload can be evenly distributed and does not fall always on the same few. If you would like to join or to put together such a group, please contact the Parish Office.


Maintenance Team

A very small Team of volunteers help out with DIY jobs in the church and in the presbytery, if you have any skill which you would like to offer in your spare time or if you are willing to get involved in any maintenance project, please contact the Parish Office.


Sanctuary and Altar cloths Cleaning

There is a small group who meets every Friday morning after Mass to clean the Sanctuary and dust around the benches. They also provide a cleaning service for all Altar cloths. Volunteers are always welcome, so if you would like a slice of the action, please come to Mass on a Friday morning and speak to anyone in the group.


Repository

Our Repository stocks a wide variety of books, cards and religious items. It is open before and after all Sunday Masses and on Holy Days of Obbligation. Occasionally it is open also during the weekday mornings. If articles or books you need are not in stock they can be ordered through the Repository.
