Members of a new Parish Pastoral Council have been appointed by Fr Anthony. He has asked Members to attend the 11.00 Mass this Sunday (9/2/2020) to be commissioned.
Fr Anthony invites everyone to participate in the First Friday of the Month Programme. This consists of Mass at 9.30am followed by Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament as usual. In addition there will be Confession during the Adoration (at about 11.00am), followed by a second Mass for the sick and private intentions at 12.30pm.
We shall soon be welcoming Fr Anthony Uche to St Margaret's. He is set to arrive on January 5th 2020.
Here are a few notes on his background:-
