REFRESHMENTS AFTER SUNDAY MASS AT SACRED HEART— after a long period during Covid when we  couldn’t meet after Mass we have now resumed. Two or three families have been providing coffee etc on  an ad hoc basis and we are very grateful to them. They would like to increase their numbers and revert  to a rota system. It would be great if we could find a few families who would be willing to help perhaps  once every six or seven weeks. It is a great opportunity to meet other parishioners for a chat and the  children love to play together. If you are interested please put your name on the list in the narthex.  Thank you.
