Parish Golf Day

The BOSTALL PARK OPEN GOLF DAY is on Saturday 13th May, the venue is Birchwood Park. I know the date is the 13th, but it could be your day to pick up the Green Jacket!! Players, male or female with ‘honest’ handicaps are invited to be part of an event which has been in the past memorable and no doubt will come up TRUMPS even though we are not in Lahinch, Co. Clare. Hopefully we will have a raffle for the Lourdes trip, so donated prizes would be very welcome. £40.00 for the round of golf plus ‘a bite’ to start with and an evening meal. Also, although I don’t drink when I lift the cup it would be good if there was something stronger than red lemonade in it just in case I didn’t win it so some of the strong stuff would be welcome, see you there.




Holy Hour

Next Sunday May 7th from 4pm-5pm. It is a day of prayer for vocations to the priesthood and religious life. Please join us.

Thanks to Joe and Claude for their work on our Church grounds. They are now lovely and tidy. We are awaiting quotes for the improvement of the area where the trees were taken. Time is needed for the ground to settle. Will keep you posted.­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­
