Benches in St Fillan’s
The benches in St Fillan’s are being lovingly restored after the ravages of time and the recent cleaning regime prescribed during the pandemic. The cost of each bench being refurbished is around £340. This may be a bit steep for just one person but all and any donations towards this project are very welcome. If you would like to contribute to this, perhaps in memory of a loved one, please speak to Canon Tom. A plaque could be tastefully affixed to the bench for those who have been able to contribute the full amount, and a list of those who are remembered placed at the back of St Fillan’s for all donors.
Registration of all children for First Holy Communion and Confirmation
All parents of children who would be due to celebrate their First Holy Communion or Confirmation are asked to register their child with Canon Tom in writing (email or on paper with a contact detail) before the end of October of this year.
