Readers - Many people within the parish, both young and old, take an active part in the liturgy of the word, by reading during the masses. Its a daunting task sometimes, to stand up and speak in front of a church full of people, but they all do it so well, they're a credit to the parish.

If you feel that you could do this, have been baptised and would like to add to parish life as a reader then please get in touch with the parish office stating which mass you wish to read at.

For guidelines on what is expected of a reader and tips on how to, please read Reader's Guidelines.

Youth Group - CYG.net - From the acorn of an idea, some of our younger parishioners decided to form a youth group for the post confirmation age group, and so the Youth Group formed from all the parishes in our pastoral area, meeting at Our Lady of Peace. The group has rebranded itself as CYG.net and all of the post confirmation age group are welcome to the meeting. Why not check out the CYG.net Summer Programme for more information.
