We are an informal social group who meet once a month on the last Thursday morning of each month after Mass.
It is an opportunity for friendship with fellow parishioners and their friends.
Everyone is welcome
We have talks in the Parish Centre, outings to local places of interest,
It is good fun. Do come and join us!
Catholic Friends began in 2015 to provide a social opportunity
within the Parish without any formal procedures or subscriptions.
Everyone has an opportunity to contribute to the programme and make suggestions for outings & talks
We ask for a small donation towards tea & coffee and for a monthly Mass Intention.
Outing costs are paid by the individual and we travel in private cars
Sometimes we have lunch out after the outing
