ADVANCE WARNING

St Thomas Aquinas Church will undergo some major interior work during August and September which will necessitate the closure of the building for reasons of health and safety.  It is expected that works will commence on the 18th August and will last for approximately eight weeks.  The 6 pm Saturday Vigil Mass and the 7.30 am Sunday Mass will, therefore, move to All Saints Church for this period.  Weekday Masses will either move to All Saints or be celebrated in the Meeting Room.  Thank you for your patience.

MASS INTENTIONS

A reminder that if you would like a Mass offered for your intention please contact Jo in the Parish Office to check if the date you would like is available.  Due to a very high demand there is normally a month’s ‘waiting list’.  We would advise you to organise Mass intentions as early as possible to avoid disappointment.
