Pastoral Letter from Fr Richard Rosse, Parish Priest
Monday 4th October 2021
My dear people,
I pray that you are well during these unprecedented and challenging of times. The purpose of this letter is to share with you some exciting news for our parish community.
Proposed New Church and Facilities
As you may have realised, our parish is growing rapidly in terms of new residential development in our area which in turn has led to many people moving into the parish. The current western boundary of the parish extends to Plumpton Road and you would have noticed how quickly new estates are coming up between the church and Plumpton Road.
