And lastly for the time being Support of the Parish. This is a big ask at this time of concern and financial worry for all. However, the parish still needs to run and be viable. Donations can be made through the fundraising link as above. It is also possible to easily set up a Standing Order by emailing the office, or by collecting a form from the church foyer, or directly via your bank [Sort code 30 93 04 A/c no. 00875180.] Alternately by popping envelopes into the parish office at 18 Douglas Rd, Southbourne.

New Rosary, Adoration and Benediction
Following positive feedback from our Day Of Reflection you are warmly invited to join fellow parishioners in praying the Rosary whilst walking around the church every 1st Saturday of the month. The Rosary will follow the usual Saturday Mass at 10.30am and then at approximately 11.30am there will be a chance to spend some quiet time with Our Lord in Adoration, finishing with Benediction at 12 noon. There is no commitment – please come for as little or as long as you want to.
Our usual Rosary group also continue to meet in church on Tuesday afternoons at 2.30pm after Adoration of the Blesséd Sacrament at 1.30pm and everyone is welcome to join them too.
Our Family Masses take place every 2nd Sunday of the month at the 11am Mass.
We love to encourage families to take part – whether you are a pre-schooler, a parent or grandparent everyone is welcome to join in. Roles and written parts are usually given out on the 1st Sunday of the month before and after the 11am Mass so that there is time to practise before the 2nd week.
If you’d like to get involved in any way please look out for either Catherine Wright (from the Children’s Liturgy team) or Liz Cooper (from the First Holy Communion team) who can help you. Alternatively, you can email Liz at firstname.lastname@example.org or leave a message for her with the Parish Office on 01202 424960.
We also have an aspiring Family Band which plays at this Mass and is always on the lookout for new members. For more details and music to practise please speak to Catherine Wright at Mass or via email@example.com
