Our next PAC Meeting

This will be on Monday, 27 January, 2020 at 7pm in Llay. Do make a note of it More Readers Readers are desperately needed for the 6pm Mass on Saturday in Llay. What is a “Reader” - The Liturgy Office of the Bishops Conference of England & Wales states: “God speaks to the assembly through them, and, the impact of God’s message will depend significantly on their conviction, their preparation, and their delivery. The reader has responsibility for not simply reading the word, but assisting the assembly to hear the word.” If you would like to take part in this ministry, for any Mass, please contact Canon.

Why not sign a “Gift Aid” Form?

If you are a tax payer do, please, sign a “gift-aid” form. This takes only a few moments to do, it costs you nothing, but greatly enhances the value of what you give by allowing the parish to claim back the tax on your donation. Just see the priest if interested. And another reminder please do use your offertory envelopes for your giving!!
