St Fillan’s Memorial Hall
We have reached the stage when we as a parish need to decide what we do next. Canon Tom Will talk about this at the end of Mass.

Canon Tom would like to offer the chance for folk to contribute towards a gift to Canon Andrew, and so there will be a special collection next week at the Sunday Masses.
