Notice: Office Renovation during August and Abbreviated Newsletter

During August, I have arranged for the Parish Office to be redecorated and recarpeted and would like the Office to have a much-needed pause before the Autumn and the intensity of the return to schools and the new academic year. The Parish Office will be closed from Friday 12 August to Wednesday 31 August. Looking ahead to Autumn, I would like to give notice of two important dates: Sunday 4 September, I will issue a Parish Calendar for the year ahead and then on Monday 19 September at 7pm, I would like to call an Parish Meeting, similar to the one I had when I first arrived as your Parish Priest. Ahead of the meeting, if you would like to share with me – in writing, via email, in a conversation, how this first year has been, whether there are any areas of improvement to be made, etc.
