TEA IN THE PAROCHIAL HALL Tea and coffee are available in the Hall each morning after the 10 am Mass from Monday to Thursday. CHURCH RENOVATIONS The renovation of the leaded windows in the church and the provision of protective metal grills continue. Families still have
the opportunity to pay for the renovation of a window costing £150. A further option is available for those who would like to make a donation towards a window by leaving spare change in the box provided in the Hall by the Tea Ladies for this purpose. It is surprising just how quickly this can mount up.
