now have a new display cabinet full of repository items for baptism, first
holy communion, confirmation etc as well as a card rack where parishioners
can help themselves and deposit the cost of the card in the cash box. For
items in the cabinet Maria is usually at all Syston
masses so if anyone would like to look at anything they only have to let
her know. You will find her in the porch at the end of mass. Her contact
details are inside the cabinet should anyone need anything outside of mass
Lastly there is a notebook and pen on the card rack (behind the cash box)
should anyone like to leave any enquiries that way or any suggestions for
future orders. If you leave your contact details, she will get back to you.
