Happy Easter, Everyone. 

Yes, it is still Easter and will be until Pentecost Sunday.


First of all, let me again offer my personal thanks for your Easter offering, your very generous gift to me. I also enjoy the many cards and other gifts besides. 

We welcome members of the Knights of St. Columba to our 8.30 mass, which they have asked to be offered in thanksgiving. If you want to know anything about this fraternity, I am sure there will be plenty of members who’d be only too pleased to help you after the mass.

I am taking a holiday next week, Sat 22nd April till Sat 29th April. Fr. Peter will be saying the masses throughout that week.

                                              God Bless,                     Fr Doug       



Please pray for the soul of Pat Liddiard. Her funeral will be in church at 1.00 on Tuesday, April 18th.



Please also pray for the soul of Sheila Jones. Her funeral arrangements will be notified in due course.


DEFIBRILLATOR:  Many thanks to a parishioner who enabled the Benenden Trust to present us with a defibrillator. We have positioned it in its own cupboard in the hallway between the Church and the Parish Hall. 

We all hope that we will never have to use it, but we could very well save a life with it if we are called upon to use it for someone whose heart stops beating.

To use it, obtain a key from the sacristy of the church or the kitchen of the hall, as quickly as you can. A set of spoken instructions will guide you step by step.


COFFEE AFTER MASS:   Coffee and tea are served in the hall every week following the 10.30 Mass and all are welcome.  We are looking for 2 more people to join the Coffee Rota – this would mean once every 6 weeks.  Do please consider joining the Rota to help the existing volunteers – please contact Anne Rayer. (07855 785331).


GIFT AIDERS’ TAX LETTERS :   Please fill in the form at the back of the Church with your Name and Gift Aid Number if you require a ‘Certificate of Tax’ letter.



We can be contacted by leaving a message with the Parish Office, a note through the Presbytery Door or using the Parish email address as above.
