Introduction

 

 A warm welcome to St John’s section of the Parish of the Good Shepherd’s Web Page.


St John’s is a vibrant church community, with a real feel of being an extended family, reaching out to the whole community and beyond. Check out our groups and societies listing being added to regularly, you’ll see what that means.


This section, like the whole of the web site, belongs to its people. To that end if there is anything that you would like to see in your church’s section please contact Margaret Pickles or David Hartley.


The monthly anniversary memoriam, updated monthly, replicates the old newsletters weekly listing. If you have anyone you would like to be added for the month following current listing please contact David Hartley in sufficient time.
Many members of the parish family have asked for some form of humour to be incorporated, we’ll try to put a monthly mixed bag together. If you have anything you would like to share humour wise e-mail David Hartley.
You will see the reproduction of the contents of the Great War Memorial from church. The tribute for those who lost their lives in WW2 is really basic. Should we try to record names of the lost? E-mail David Hartley with your thoughts or ideas.
Sincere thanks to Mike Morris and Margaret Pickles for their dedication in putting together the whole Web Page.
New areas will keep being slipped in to the listing, keep checking in.

Notices

 

 

Terry and Shirley Quinn

 

The 10.45am Mass on 8th December was tinged with sadness, as Terry Quinn our organist and choir master was retiring from this role after 57 years of loyal service to Saint John the Baptist Church.

Following Mass conducted by Farther Emmanuel, Farther David on behalf of the congregation of Saint John’s presented Terry with a Papal Blessing and a cheque.

Terry’s wife Shirley is also retiring from her numerous roles within the church and was presented with a bouquet of flowers

Terry will be returning to play at midnight mass this year.

Looking forward to that Terry
