HELP:--  Does anyone know where I can Buy “BIG Fireworks”  at a decent price !!  I know I will have to shop around for them. And any donations or contributions would be really welcome.

Thanks Fr Jude

 

 

FATHER PAUL

As you know Father Paul says masses at all three churches and currently has to rely on taxis and buses since he doesn’t drive. From time to time he has received lifts to take him home or to town but it would be really nice if after masses anyone who might be going his way was able to provide him with a lift. Thank you Father Jude.
