Thank You: Eurcharistic Adoration

We had a tremendous response to our appeal for people to set up Eucharistic Adoration in our Parish.
Silent Weekly Adoration will take place on THURSDAYS from 7 am till 10 pm every week, starting Thursday 17th September.
Religious books and materials will be available in the Day Chapel for use during adoration.
People are asked to tick their name on the Register as they enter for their hour each week.
There is a local Adoration team in place to look after everything to do with weekly adoration.
If you have any queries leave a note in the office with your name and details and they will contact you. This team will meet on Monday 14th September at 7.30pm in the church.

Thank you most sincerely for your generous response.
