Here is the latest news from Fr Charles about Church and our Community

Pleaee visit the News Section for a report from Brittany Roberts and her experiences volunteering in Nepal

The recent beautiful pink moon was photographed by Fr Charles at 3am in the morning (dont ask!!)

This happens when the moon comes to the nearest point from Earth in its orbit. This creates a supermoon,” a full moon that appears slightly larger than average. The moon, yet another way God speaks to us.
