200 CLUB  St Bernadette's Primary School Parent Council will be  starting a 200 club in March and we would invite you to join as well. Information and sign up forms will be available after Mass. You can also contact us by email
Church Care + Maintenance  is an ongoing feature of parish life. It would be good to draw up a list of local contractors, electricians, plumbers, roofers and handymen on whom we could call, either on a voluntary or remunerated basis when repair work or larger scale projects were being considered.  Please contact Fr John or any member of the Fabric Team with contact details of any companies you might recommend. We are keen to support local enterprise whenever possible.
For example….
Church Gates : Main Street entrance   over the years as vehicles have become larger, eg 4WD cars, delivery vans and hearses, access to the car park from the street has become increasingly difficult.  We propose to widen the gateway and are looking for a local contractor to undertake this work.
CLUSTER PARISHES TOGETHER  Last week Archbishop Cushley gave a presentation on the current state of the Archdiocese and where we as parishes might go in order to be more effective in our dual mission of building up the Church and in sharing the Gospel of Christ with the world. How we can do that will hopefully emerge from 3 further meetings we have been asked to hold during this year.  Dates to be announced soon.
