Website

Aims

The reason for having a parish Web site is to provide an additional channel for communication between ‘The Parish’ and parishioners and visitors to the site. Our aim is to provide useful information about day-to-day activities as well as about the groups and organisations that work in the parish and about our Catholic faith. In addition there are links to other sites which visitors may find useful.

If you are an aspiring author and would like to contribute something – especially concerning the Catholic faith, Catholic devotions etc. then get in touch.

If you run a Parish group and we have not included you please accept our apologies – it was not intentional. If we have included your group or activity and you would like to amend the entry we have published then, again, get in touch.
