The floodlighting for the Church which was installed for the Millennium by Wandsworth Council has been out of action for some time. This week the old fittings were replaced with new LED lights and the floodlighting is now operational from dusk to midnight. It is a great enhancement to our beautiful Church building.
There will be a Cheese and Wine Party for Young Adults at 19.30 on Thursday 22nd February in the Corry Hall. Theme of the discussion: Effective Communications.
The Feast of Our Lady of Lourdes normally falls on 11th February but this year, since that day is a Sunday, we will celebrate the feast on Monday 12th. This is also the World Day of Prayer for the Sick and so we will offer the Sacrament of the Sick after 9.30 mass that day.
If you are applying for a place for your child at primary or secondary school you will require a reference from the priest. Since Father Alex is new and doesn’t know people’s names yet you will need to provide evidence of regular mass attendance. To provide this please sign the sheet at the back of the Church each Sunday.
There will be a meeting of the Parish Council at 19.30 on Thursday 28th September in the Parish Hall. All parishioners are very welcome to attend and express their views. With the change of parish priest it is a good time to discuss the situation of the parish.
We are holding a Parish Race Night on Saturday 7th October at 19.30 with a Bar and Ploughman’s Supper. Tickets only £5 on sale after both weekend Masses. £50 to sponsor a race and £5 to sponsor a horse. Eight races and eight horses in each race. Come along for a fun evening. Good luck!
