Spirit of Summer Concert

Our next event is the Spirit of Summer Concert. On Sunday 7 July at 2.30pm there will be a concert in St Mary's Church by the A Cappella Singers. Tickets are £7.00 including refreshments and under 12s are free. Tickets will be on sale in the church porch or contact Irene on 236481. The programme is a mixture of summer tunes - perfect for a relaxing summer Sunday afternoon.


Open Air Mass

On Sunday 14 July at 2.00pm there will be an Open Air Mass at the site of the old St Mary's Church to celebrate the 200th Anniversary of the opening of the original St Mary's in July 1819.


Annual Sponsored Walk

On Sunday 14 July we will be holding our annual Sponsored Walk to help towards this year’s Parish Pilgrimage to Lourdes.

Father Ian can’t do the walk on the day as he will be celebrating Holy Mass at Altham in the afternoon, but he is determined to do a few miles in communion with us, so if you would like to sponsor him, there are forms at the back of Church.

There are also sponsor forms if anyone wants to join us on the day – with or without sponsorship! We would like to thank Father Ian for offering to support us in our efforts to raise funds which help towards our Pilgrimage and also to say thank you to everyone for supporting us, year after year.
