Family Day  – The first Family Day to be held in the new Pastoral Centre  held earlier in the summer attracted large numbers of parishioners.

Warm sunshine, face-painting, a soccer goal-keeper, a magician, prize giving in the parish Art Competition, freshly cooked burgers, ice-cream cones and the ever reliable cuppa – all served with great good humour and a real sense of community –  contributed to a most enjoyable event.  The gospel reading of the day was about the mustard seed growing into a small sturdy tree which offers shelter to the birds of the air – it was mirrored in our parish community gathered and enjoying each other’s company.  As ever parish volunteers made sure everything moved smoothly and with little apparent effort – all signs of successful planning.

Our  Family fun Day is the  first of many other similar type days in the future.
