Sunday November 3   Tea/Coffee after Mass At a recent meeting of the parish council a discussion took place on how best to meet the needs of our parish community in its present state.  It was strongly felt that we do not meet often enough.  This calls for an effort from all of us.   As a first step, it was decided to invite parishioners to a simple tea/coffee after Mass so we can discuss the needs of our modern parish.  Small donations could be made to Mary’s s Meals but not necessary.  So put a ring around Sunday, November 3, and meet the parishioners after Mass that morning.  Who knows, you may even get to know the name of that person who has been sitting next to you in Church all these years !
