The Spirit of Christmas Fayre

Yes there’s a new team of organisers for this year’s Christmas Fayre and they would like to take the opportunity of introducing themselves to you through a team photograph.  There are a few of the usual suspects there and we expect lots of fun and excitement along the way and of course on the day itself.  Watch this space for a monthly’ish newsletter.

To keep Parishioners up to date the team have started with a copy the minutes of the first meeting and as you can see there’s a much work to be done.  Let’s hope that the Little Sisters of St. Prosecco get all the support they deserve.

Visit to Medjugorje

“I believe that the message of peace, which is central here in Medjugorje, is intended for the whole world”, said Polish Archbishop Henryk Hose.  Archbishop Hose was appointed in May 2018 as Apostolic Visitor to the Saint James parish in Medjugorje, in Bosnia-Herzegovina, which is run by the Franciscan friars.  Several parishioners have expressed a wish to visit Medjugorje in 2019.  Joe Walsh Tours will be organising a pilgrimage there on the 17th September 2019 for 7 nights, departing from Bristol Airport.  For more details contact: Connie Lane Tel: 01749 677328 or email:
