Parish Organisation

There is a Finance Committee, as well as Buildings and Maintenance, and Health and Safety Committees.

Would you like to get involved? 

Because of the constraints imposed by the pandemic on the way the parish functions, not all the usual activities are taking place.  There are tasks for which help would be welcome - reading at Mass, flower arranging, being a steward at Sunday Mass, cleaning.  If you feel you could help, please contact Fr Kieran.

Safeguarding

Our parish is totally committed to ensuring that we provide a safe place for children and vulnerable adults. Any adult, whether paid or volunteer, who works in any role where they have access to children or vulnerable adults must have obtained DBS clearance before they start.  There are two safeguarding representatives, whose contact details are available in the church.
