PRAYING THE ROSARY

In addition to praying the Rosary after Mass on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays, the Holy Rosary will now be recited before Mass on Mondays and Tuesdays at 9:30am! Please come along to offer this most powerful prayer of the Church!

 

RESERVED SEATS ???
Someone was asked to move twice last week because they had “sat in someone’s seat” at All Saints Church. To be clear  – there is no reserved seating in our Churches – apart from those performing functions, such as musicians, sacristans and servers. If someone has sat in a place where you like to sit you will need to move somewhere else – do not ask them to move. Please also be mindful and considerate of the infirm and disabled to whom every courtesy should and must be shown.
