Ours is a vibrant parish
with many great and varied activities taking place.
The Open Weekend
The purpose of the Open Weekend is to share the aims and experiences of
the organisations which provide so many ways of helping people to further
develop their faith both spiritually and practically.
There are more than 50 groups listed in the Parish Directory from Altar servers to “You can be Santa”.
They mostly hold regular meetings and they all would welcome new members
to support them in their aims and objectives. These represent opportunities
for every member of the parish, young, old, single or married, male or female
to join a group or two should they wish.
Sacramental preparation, liturgy, prayer groups, justice and peace, befriending
the vulnerable, mission work, working with the youth and other faiths, are
just some of areas which will be covered by more than 30 organisations at
the Open Weekend.
Each group will set up a table display in the hall, with resources that
clearly express their aims. Representatives will be there ready to
talk about their organisation and answer any questions.
On Saturday 10 September,
groups can set up from 2 pm until 4 pm; the Parish Centre will be open for
visitors 4 pm until 8 pm.
On Sunday 11 September, the Parish Centre will be open for visitors 8.30
am until 1.30 pm then 4 pm until 8.30 pm; and stalls will be dismantled and
put away between 8.30 and 9 pm.
We will be serving refreshments in the foyer throughout so we do need volunteers
to help with this.
