Parish Birthdays – Happy Birthday to Claudette King and Layla-Jayne Tellis

St Mary’s Today will be a slightly shortened service so that we can gather at the War Memorial at 11am for the act of rememberance.

St Bart’s Today we will gather at the Cenotaph in Central Park for 11am for the civic act of rememberance.

St Bart’s is in need of people willing to undertake Sunday and possibly week day sacristan duties.  On Sundays this entails arriving by 9.15 at the latest and setting up for the Eucharist.  Full training will be given.
