Parish News & Updates

a message from Fr Michael...

As the car park is now fully functioning can you please observe the original entrance (via Austenwood Common) and exit (via Priory Road) signs. We would like to remind all parishioners NOT TO USE THE PRIORY SIDE OF THE CHURCH as a car park. This area must be kept clear for access in and out of the Priory and Parish Office. It must also be kept clear to allow access for emergency vehicles.

As can be expected in a Parish as large and diverse as ours, there is always something going on and, much as we would like to let every parishioner know all that is happening, it has often been impossible for us to do so. However now, with our very good web site and newsletter at our disposal we will do our very best to keep parishioners well informed on all that is happening in our Parish.

Here are some recent updates:

Parish Update No 12  (6 March)

Parish Update No 11  (14 February)

Parish Update No 10  (7 February)

Parish Update No 9  (6 December)

Parish Update No 8  (18 October)

Parish Update No 7  (30 August)

Parish Update No 6  (16 August)

Parish Update No 5  (2 August)

Parish Update No 4  (28 June)

Parish Update No 3  (14 June)

Parish Update No 2  (7 June)

Parish Update No 1  (10 May)

All the best, Fr Michael
