300 CLUB: The forms are available at the back of the Church. We do hope that as many of the parishioners will join the Club as it does raise money for us to do the extra work need in the Church. The cost is £24.00 for a full year, or you can pay £12.00 for six months or £6.00 for three months or even pay monthly at £2.00. Paying it in one go does help the administration. A lot less work!! Thanks to all who have already filled the forms. We hope to do the first draw in the next two weeks.

BAPTISM COURSE: Because of the May Bank Holiday falling on Monday 7th May the course will begin on Monday 14th May and finish on Monday 21st May. Parents who wish to have their children Baptised over the next few months should attend the course. Expectant parents are encouraged to join the course. Please bring a copy of your Baptismal Certificate with you.

SVP: The SVP at St. Michael’s will hold a coffee morning here at the Church on Wednesday 9th May at 9.45am until about midday. Beautiful pastries and cakes to be bought. We do ask if any person would like to support the sales of cakes might bake some and bring along to support our Minnie Vinnies in their work for the community.
