Tomorrow we celebrate the Feast of St Aloysius Gonzaga who is patron saint of young people.  This is very fitting as we gather together to present certificates to the young people in the parish who received their First Holy Communion on Sunday 16th June and confirmandi who received the Sacrament of Confirmation on Sunday 9th June.
All welcome to join the celebration Mass and party afterwards at                St Thomas More's at 6.30pm Friday 21st June
