We 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
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 times.
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.
