Thank you for considering supporting us.
Since September of this year, we have had a couple of minor calamaties. Firstly, the roof of the presbytery collapsed in spectacular style leaving one bedroom completely exposed to the elements. It was through good fortune that no one was hurt. Secondly, on one of the coldest weekends of 2023, our boilers broke down. Many of you bravely sat through Mass in temperatures that were less than 10C. The extensive cost of fixing the roof and the boilers have been funded via loans.
We're very grateful for any donations, no matter how small, to help us fund the boiler and roof repairs. We receive no financing from the Diocese or from the Government so we rely on our wonderful parishoners.
If you would like to support us, then donations in any form are most welcome. This can be in the form of cash, using the contactless card readers in the church porch or by bank transfer.
Once again, any forthcoming help is very much appreciated.
