After all our exertions we invite you to enjoy a plate of warm soup, tea and coffee in the hall.

On the following day, Sunday 30th September, we will once again celebrate the beauty and fruitfulness of the earth by bringing to our Sunday Liturgy some of our earth’s gifts (edible) which are readily available to us now throughout the year.  These will be offered in thanksgiving at the offertory and delivered to the Wayside Club after mass to feed the less fortunate.
