Reverse Advent calendar

Some people are popping an item of seasonal food or chocolate etc into a box each day during advent & bringing it to Church on the THIRD Sunday of Advent so that it can be taken to the Olive Branch…..just sayin……
Thanks. Chris Doyle.

Rosary Prayers at Caton

Since there will be no Mass at Caton on Tuesdays, a group of us is getting together each week at 6:00 pm to pray the Rosary in the porch. Beads and prayer cards are available – please join us.

While Fr Luiz is away

As you are aware, Fr Luiz is away from the parishes until 19 April 2020. During this time a number of priests will be looking after the parishes and saying the masses, and various volunteers are helping with church management.
