On Monday 3rd December there will be an important meeting at the parish centre at 7:00pm for all those give their service in the liturgy, as singers, readers, and extraordinary ministers of the eucharist. All these are encouraged to make their best and participate at this meeting.
We remind you that on the occasion of the Christmas Season the Diakonia Commission of our parish will be distributing hampers to the needy families of our parish. In the next weeks we will be collecting food items in the chests provided in the church to help these people. We encouarge everyone to help while keeping in mind that THERE IS MORE JOY IN GIVING RATHER THAN IN RECEIVING.
During this week the parish office will be closed because the parish priest will be participating in the annual retreat for parish priests.
