Many graces and favours come to us through this time spent with Lord. Vocations to Priesthood & Religious Life increase where there is Adoration as well as conversions and people returning to their faith. You can pick up a signing up form this weekend to return and place in the box beside the Sacred Heart Statue. No need for those already signed up to re-sign unless you also wish to sign for more hours on Tuesdays/Thursdays.
The Stall is open each week before and after the Vigil Mass and 10am Mass. It is now located in the link corridor between the Sacristy and the Church House.
