A Service of Thanksgiving and Reflection
Our Mass for children and young families is today (Sunday) October 2nd at 11 am.
From now on, the Vigil Mass and the 11 am Mass ill be broadcast on our YouTube channel in the hopes that there is continuity in service. For some reason, Sundays seem to be problematic in terms of connectivity.
Readers and Welcomers
Thanks to those who have volunteered. Volunteer forms will be available soon. There are plenty of openings for altar servers too. Canon Tom would like to welcome new lay ministers after the October break with a session in the hall and the church.
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. Our sincere thanks to those who have already donated, it is very much appreciated. We also have a couple of pledges; thank you!
All and any donations of whatever size will be recognised.
Canon Tom’s Day Off
Canon Tom tries to take as much of a Friday off as possible after celebrating morning Mass. An emergency contact number will always be available on the answering machine. Thanks.

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.
