This Week

Fred Marsh

More sad news as we come to the end of another week with the news that one of our older parishioners, Fred Marsh has sadly passed away. Fred was very involved with both the parish and the school over the years. He spent many years greeting people at the start of Mass, handing out bulletins and collecting pennies for the parish coffers.


Fred's funeral is currently slated for Thursday 13th April. More details will be published when they become available.


RIP Fred.


Frank Bradshaw

Similarly we are in receipt of news that we have also lost Frank Bradshaw this week. Again, more news will be published when it is available.


RIP Frank.

Frank Hawley

On behalf of all on the parish council, we would like to express our deepest sadness at the loss of Frank Hawley. He gave his heart and soul to St Peter and St. Michael's for many many years working to help keep our Parish alive. He gave a lot of his time and he was always hands-on working behind the scenes to help achieve the smooth running of the Parish, alongside many others who we have lost over the years. I personally enjoyed working alongside him on the First Holy Communion programme and learnt a lot from his knowledge. Like the other members who have also passed away, we can never fill their shoes but we must try to carry on the work that they undertook because they loved their church so much. They are the reason why it is still a vibrant Parish.


We pray also for Rita, Tony, Pauline and all of Frank's family. May god give them strength in their time of grief. God Bless them and thank you Frank for all you have done for St. Peter and St. Michael's parish.

Please be vigilant - we have received a note from our gardener that someone has dumped bamboo and hedges behind the garage on the far side of the car park. He has cleared it away for us, but it's not part of his job. If you see anyone "fly-tipping" in our grounds, please let us know either directly to Deacon Jim, or via email to the parish address.
