Why come to Church?
The most important service which takes place in
the Church is the Mass. All Catholics are expected to attend Mass
on Sunday (or Saturday evening) every week. It is simply a basic
part of being a Catholic Christian, and it expresses our commitment to
But more importantly it is the way we grow in our
love of God and neighbour. By coming to the weekly service of worship,
we are united more intimately with Our Lord and Saviour.
Weekend Mass Times
Sunday 10 am
Mass with Choir and Organ.
(Choir Practice at 9am.)
A family orientated celebration.
(Many people have asked
what this is all about. Firstly, this is not a crèche or a
Sunday School. Children’s Liturgy is a chance for children aged 3 to
7 to attend a special Liturgy of the Word during Mass. The children
will be asked to come forward to the altar at the beginning of Mass,
and then will process into the sacristy. Once there, they will hear
the same Gospel proclaimed at a suitable level for them; be invited to
discuss the Gospel story and it’s significance; and then take part in
activities suitable for their age. They return to the main
congregation at the offertory procession.)
Tea, Coffee and Soft Drinks are served in the
Parish Hall after this mass.
Sunday 12 noon
Mass with Gospel Choir and Music Group.
A lively and charismatic celebration.
