HEALTH AND SAFETY: We have appointed two Health and Safety officers for the Parish. They are Christy Sebastian and Maria Lukose. There is going to be a special meeting in the Deanery in the month of March for all the parishes and we will be instructed as to what is needed for the safety of our Churches and the parishioners. I do thank the two people who have taken on this responsibility and if I need more I will ask for more volunteers at the time.

THE CRIB: will be taken down this week end and so it is the last opportunity for donations towards the Brentwood Catholic Children’s Society. We do thank all who have given so generously and hope more will do so this week end. The Society do such wonderful work for our Children in need.
