Our Parish Office

Our Parish Office


The Parish Office is located inside of St Anthony's Presbytery. It is open on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday from 9:00am to 1.00pm. However, it is closed on all Fridays during the Summer break.


It is responsible for managing all Parish and diary appointments, booking masses, meetings as well as arranging baptisms, funerals and weddings.  It also handles bookings for the hire of the Crypt.  The office holds a selection of Communion, Confirmation and Mass Cards available for purchase.  


The Office prepares news items for the weekly newsletter and updates parish registers for baptisms, funerals, weddings and the Book of Remembrance. Moreover, it has a key role in being the main point of contact and providing support for parishioners, clergy and parish groups.


If you have any items for the newsletter, please submit these to the Parish Office by no later that 10.00am on a Friday.


Although the Parish Office is responsible for all the day to day business of the Church, there is a strong team of volunteers who work behind the scenes on various administrative matters and support Fr Nicholas in the running of the Parish and planning for its future.


The website is managed and updated regularly. If there is any information you wish to post, please see:

“Not all of us can do great things. But we can do small things with great love." - Mother Theresa 


The Parish warmly welcomes all volunteers! If you can assist with any of the following, please let Fr Nicholas know: Sacristy work, cleaning, children’s liturgy, repair works, painting, gardening, lifts for parishioners to and from Mass.
If there is something else you can do, please do let him know.



If you have recently joined the Parish, you are most welcome. We hope that you are settling in well. Please do make yourself known to Fr Nicholas or the Parish Office. Parish Welcome Packs are available from the Church Narthex. 


Tea/Coffee Morning Donations - Sunday


If you would like to donate any cakes, biscuits, tea, coffee, fruit etc. They will be gratefully received. Alternatively, if you are able to increase your financial donation, that would be wonderful!


A big thank to everyone that helped and supported our tea and coffee mornings. For the month of  May. Our takings were £77.36. If you are new to our Parish, please pop into the Crypt after Mass on a Sunday - we would love to see you. Our tea and coffee mornings are run solely on donations so do support us and give generously. All donations recieved go towards the upkeep of the Crypt. 


Sick and Housebound


If you know of any parishioners that are sick or housebound that would like to receive Holy Communion, please let Fr Nicholas know or contact the Parish Office. 


Eucharistic Minister Readers and Counters Rotas


These are now available on the website under Mass Intentions and Rotas.


After Mass Tidy Up


We are looking for a small team of volunteers to help tidy up after Mass. This includes putting away the hymn books, Mass cards, kneelers and making sure the Church is neat and tidy for its next service.  If you would like to assist in anyway or join a rota, please see Fr Nicholas. 

Prayers for the Sick


Please continue to pray for the sick of our Parish and those that have asked for your prayers. If you know of anyone that would like a mention in our bidding prayers, please let Father, the Deacons or the Parish Office know.

Prayer to St Anthony


Saint Anthony, perfect imitator of Jesus, who received from God the special power of restoring lost things, grant that I may find {mention your petition} which has been lost. As least restore to me peace and tranquillity of mind, the loss of which has afflicted me even more than my material loss. To this favour I ask another of you: that I may always remain in possession of the true good that is God. Let me rather lose all things than lose God, my supreme good. Let me never suffer the loss of my greatest treasure, eternal life with God. Amen.
