Sacraments of Reconciliation and First Eucharist
This weekend at Mass, children preparing to receive the sacraments of Reconciliation and Eucharist are encouraged to bring an item of food for the Vinnies Pantry as an offering at Mass. You can also come to collect your Mass booklet if you weren't able to last week.

The Feasts of Sts. Anne and Joachim
On the 26th July, the Catholic Church celebrates the feasts of Sts. Anne and Joachim, Jesus' grandparents. We are also encouraged to celebrate our grandparents on this day and give thanks to God for them for the gifts that they are.
