If any parishioners have some time to assist in ‘sprucing’ up our church, please let us know. While we are able to have small numbers of people in the church together (up to 10 at any one time) if you have any time, please let the parish office know, and arrange a time to come and join in helping clean up.
Some jobs require specific skills
Can you Sew? We are in need of a new supply of purifier & Corporal clothes used by the special ministers and priests during the consecration and ministering of the Eucharist. We need handkerchief sized (approx.) squares sewn for this purpose. We will provide the fabric, cotton and template. (all white sewing) Altar Clothes to be made.
Painting and Carpentry While you don’t need to be a qualified tradesman, if you are handy with a paintbrush or with hand tools, we have a few doors/locks that need attention and securing, and some minor touch up paint repairs around the place. A door or two need some repair and a home handyman could probably assist.
Please contact Noreen at the parish office.
Helping out is not meant to be a burden.
If everyone gave just an hour or two before long it would all be done. Even if one drawer is done, then that's one job done.
