September Special Today!
The Women’s Social Group at St Peter’s are having a celebration for their 3rd birthday today, after church. Please stay in your seats after the service ends, and the entertainment will follow, and then the raffle. Refreshments will be served in the hall after that.
Farewell to Fr Reji
We shall be saying farewell to Fr Reji at a joint service on Sunday 1st October at 11am at St Peter’s (it is St Peter’s Dedication Festival), with a party afterwards. There is a card to be signed, and if you would like to give something towards Fr Reji’s present, please give it to Judith Silk. Hence there is no Mass at St Mary Mags next Sunday.
