Please try to make arrangements at least one month in advance. As far as possible avoid First Saturday and Third Saturday of the Month. Parents shall present the bith certificate of the child to be viewed by the priest.

When did we see you thirsty? (Matthew 25:31-46

Therefore we invite more Catholic men to become more involved in the Lay Apostolate and Evangelising.
