WHIT PROCESSION – Friday 24th May. There are a couple of lists in the porch seeking volunteers for the banners and statues. I suspect that St Benedict would have offered all volunteers a pint of wine or a pint of cider before setting off – and the on-lookers would have said ‘What a merry bunch of lads they are.’

TEA AND COFFEE ROTA – hopefully we will have 4 teams of 2 ladies to look after the refreshments on Sunday after Mass. There is a list in the porch for volunteers. Our thanks to Maureen and Doreen who have provided coffee and tea for many years – plus a helping hand from their spouses. It is a real ministry to the community.

PARISH LUNCH – is on Thursday 30th May and all are welcome. There is a list in the porch.

LET THERE BE LIGHT – all being well, as they say, the lights in the church tower will be working this week. It is a bit of a scramble getting into the tower, and despite getting a good soaking, Harry and Shane have managed to sort out the problem. Parishioners say they can see the tower lights from afar.

RETIREMENT – overheard ‘ there’s only one problem with being retired, you never get a day off.’
