NOTICES

 

PARISH PASTORAL COUNCIL NOMINATIONS

Our present Parish Pastoral Council has completed their term of office and a new Council now needs to be formed.   Parishioners are asked to start thinking about nominating up to 4 suitable candidates that they would like to see represent the parish and Nomination Forms are available this weekend at the Welcomers’ table. Please note that these forms need to be returned by the weekend of the 31st August / 1st September and a box for this will be provided.  Many thanks.

 

100 CLUB:  Congratulations to our August winners:  1st Prize = Verona Solomons : 2nd Prize = Cheryl Page : 3rd Prize = Faith Hastie

 

PLEASE NOTE !!!

We have recently experienced some thefts of articles in the church by vagrants who enter the church during Mass or during the Communion Service. We have, therefore, decided that from Mondays to Thursdays (starting this coming week), the main church doors will be locked at 9.00am at the start of either the Communion Service or Holy Mass to prevent this from happening again.  Latecomers will have to enter from the side gate and door (near the secretary’s office) by ringing the bell and gaining entrance through that way.

Thank you for your co-operation.

 

SACRISTANS

Have you ever wondered who keeps the church in order  for all of our liturgical celebrations?  The Sacristans are looking for extra volunteers to join their team. The duties are shared, and working times are only every few weeks.

Should any ladies (or gentlemen!) feel they would like to learn more about this rewarding ministry, please contact Helen Lloyd on (021) 531 4693 or 072 458 0715
