Eucharistic Adoration started in the parish in 1994. It is held on Wednesday and Thursday from 10:00am to 9:00pm. Parishioners pledge themselves to watch for one hour each week before the Blessed Sacrament which is exposed in the Oratory.
Adoration before the Blessed Sacrament is an opportunity for individual private prayer, reflection on scripture or simply to rest in the presence of the Lord. Booklets are available to encourage and inspire your worship.
A box is available before the altar for your private petitions. Once the box is full petitions are burnt unopened.
There is a great need for more volunteers, as it is good to have more than one person per hour committed to allow leeway for holidays, sickness etc.
Every parish will organise Eucharistic Ministry in a different way, depending on local needs and circumstances. This special ministry is an extraordinary one and the Parish Priest invites people to participate.
The purpose of the Events Team is to support parishioner-led events and to provide some new/varied events throughout the year to promote community, friendship and to help raise funds for parish repairs and maintenance.
‘Parishioner led events’ is when parishioners ask to have a certain type of event and have a feel for/and friends who may support such an event who may also have expertise and contacts to help ‘make it happen’!
With the approval of the parish priest for all events, the Events Team helps to fit the events into the parish calendar and supports the parishioner to see the event through; for example, advertising, access to equipment, recruitment of help.
We actively encourage new ventures that support all areas and ages of the parish to raise funds for the repairs and maintenance of the parish.
