On Tuesday 20 February, our Youth Group met up for an evening of fun, friendship, faith and fellowship in the Parish Office. They bonded over pizzas and board games while the adults Marcia and Sarah chatted to them, prepared the food and put the world to rights over a cuppa. Eight of our lovely young people had a fabulous time and have agreed to make it a monthly event.

The evenings started up in January at a fun filled evening hosted by Fr Mark and have since picked up new members. If you are age 11-18 then please consider joining us. The next meeting will take place on Friday 16th March from 7.30 – 9.30pm in the Parish Office. All welcome.

If you would like to help out, have a current DBS check (or wouldn’t mind obtaining one via the diocese) and would like to spend some time talking to or getting to know the group better, then please contact Sarah Barreto or Fr Mark to put your name forward. We need two adults to be around and supervise each time but it would be great to vary who they are and give more adults from our Parish the chance to hear our amazing young people and what they have to tell us. We would love to hear from you.

Five short videos to watch during Lent.

The parish has subscribed to a thought-provoking mini-course of five videos from ‘Word on Fire’, led by Catholic Bishop, Robert Barron. Starting during the first week of Lent and running through until Easter, many of us will be getting an email on the same day each week, containing a video just over five minutes long.

You can watch the first episode HERE

If you are not receiving them, but would like to join in and watch the videos along with other parishioners, you can use THIS LINK to sign up. Doing so would also enable us to help you keep in touch with the parish in the future, whether you are a regular churchgoer or not.

We hope you enjoy watching these short videos, and find them to be a useful tool for reflection as we journey through Lent. Please feel free to add a related comment after you have watched them!
