Would you like to join the Parish Communications Team?

We are seeking to form a small team to assist with communication in the parish. Primarily this will be to help run the parish website (www.stmargarets-church.co.uk) along with its social media accounts, but also to produce some printed materials. The only requirement is to be comfortable using a computer. There are many roles you could take on within the team, for example:

Parish Stewardship Campaign

Over the next 3 weeks the Parish will be holding a Stewardship Campaign to reflect on our commitment and involvement in the Parish (these topics will be discussed at our Evangelii Gaudium meetings) and our regular financial contribution to the running of the parish; over the next 3 weeks you will receive a leaflet at all Masses identifying the current financial situation; an encouragement to reflect on your current contribution and an opportunity to make any changes you might feel appropriate.

Thank You for Friday!

I would very much like to thank those who made Friday evening such a memorable occasion for myself and the Parish. Though I have been ordained for 26 years this is the first time I have been Inducted to a particular role in the church. The obligation seems quite daunting but I feel assuared with your help all that is required by the Parish Priest is indeed a realisable opportunity.

I wish to thank the Altar Servers, musicians, all those who helped with the Liturgy and all those who made the Reception such a lovely evening.

Fr Peter.
