St John's Deanery is beginning a Lay Leadership Course in September. This is to respond to Bishop John's desire to have a leadership team in every parish/worshipping community. This team will collaborate with the Parish Priest and others who minister within these communities. They will play an important role in the development and growth of our parishes, particularly as we face amalgamations. Fr John will therefore look for three people to take part in the course who will help to look after the three areas of Pastoral Care, Stewardship and Formation. Please feel welcome to make suggestions of suitable individuals. Details are at the back of church.

If there are any baptised children currently in Years 4,5 or 6 in Christ the King or other schools who have not yet made their First Holy Communion, could their parents please see Fr John after Mass
