Ministers of Holy Communion or Eucharistic ministers assist the priest in the distribution of the Body and Blood of Christ at communion on Sundays and weekday masses. Eucharistic Ministers also bring Holy Communion to the sick in their homes. Individuals who feel that they are called to be Eucharistic Ministers within the parish please contact the Parish Priest to be trained.
Ministers of the Word or Readers have the important task of proclaiming the Word of God contained in the Holy Scriptures at Sundays and weekday Masses. If you would like to train to be a Reader please speak to the Parish Priest.
For hundreds of years young people have assisted priests by serving at Mass. If you are in Year 3 and would like to train to become a server please speak to Fr Robert Ogbede.
Sacristans look after and care for the vessels and vestments, prepare the church for Mass and have a general care for the church’s furnishings. If you would like to help in this ministry especially for the Sunday masses please contact the Parish Priest.
Parish Music Ministry
Music and singing is a very significant aspect of our liturgical gatherings. At the moment we are establishing a Choir which normally sings at the 11.30am Mass on Sundays. Choir Rehearsals are normally held on Wednesdays 7pm to 9pm, and on Sundays after 11.30am Mass.
The Youth group meets in the church hall every other Wednesday from 6.00pm – 7.30pm. The meetings usually have two aspects. The Youth group gathers for the first hour to socialise, to play games together or to share - then in the next hour we become more creative – we rehearse, sing or dance.
The Youth has organised a dramatisation of the Stations of the Cross on Palm Sunday 2005 in the parish. It was called – The Passion – through the eyes of others. It was a very uplifting and spiritual experience for all present.
