On-line Donations to the parish

We have received enquiries from a number of parishioners regarding the offertory collections. Please do not deliver envelopes containing cash/cheques to the church as this will require someone going to the bank (not an essential journey). The following options are available:

If you use on-line banking facilities, you can either:
Set up a monthly standing order, with a reference of your surname and initial.
Or if you wish to pay temporarily by on-line banking then:
Pay weekly/monthly by a direct payment, with reference of your surname & initial.
The parish bank details and full information can be obtained by telephone or email from:
Maureen Taylor: / 01377 790642

Otherwise; Please continue to place your contributions in the weekly envelopes, and keep them until the church reopens.
Thank you for your support.

Children of the Parish at CAFOD Advent service

Some of the children of the Parish took part in the CAFOD Advent service at St Charles Borromeo Church in Hull, with Bishop Terry, on Sun 8th Dec at 3pm.

They took display boards to show the work they have been doing on Pope Francis’ inspiring Laudato Si which encourages us all to care for our beautiful Earth which is our Common Home. They also read some of the readings and were much praised for their contributions.
