Musicians Needed!

A big thank you to all those involved in music ministry in our Parish. However, we need more people with musical ability to continue to help animate the Mass with live music. This is particularly important for the ‘high points’ of our Christian life, Christmas, Easter, First Holy Communions, weddings, baptisms and in pastoral support for the bereaved at funerals. Please do not let this very important ministry rest on the shoulders of a few people! Please contact us if you can help in any way.
