GDPR

The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) came into force on 25 May this year.  This new law affects how companies and organisations record, store, process and use your personal information.  It applies to the Church as well as to commercial organisations.

We now have to receive explicit written consent from you to store and use your information.  This is why many of you will be contacted asking you to provide us with this consent.  The consent you give is then stored against your parishioner record so that we can demonstrate that that we have consent.  At any time you may request to see, amend or delete your data from our system and we can only use it for the purpose for which it was provided.  This is why, in some instances, we may ask for more than one ‘consent’. (e.g. consent to put your name and number on the rotas and a separate consent allow your name to appear in PCC Minutes)  Thank you for your patience with this.

If you would like to read more about how we use and store your data, the Diocesan Privacy Policy is available here

Cheshire Home, Mongu

We are pleased to say that Sr. Stella, our Presentation Sister, who has been our link to Mongu in Zambia, is planning to come to our Sunday Mass on Sunday 22nd July.
Afterwards you are all welcome to enjoy Hospitality in the Hall.
This won’t be a fund raiser, but a basket will be available for those who wish to make a donation to the Cheshire Home in Mongu

Preloved Sale

A big “Thank you” to all those who helped in any way with the Pre-Loved Sale.
We had plenty to sell and lots of refreshments, but sadly not enough customers. However, undaunted, we raised £170 and will re-run it at the end of September

Battlefield Bike Ride (update)

John completed the Help4Heroes Bike ride; 355 miles from Compiegne to Mons and is very grateful for the very generous support received from St. Patrick’s congregation.
A final total is not available but will be published soon. However, donations of over £700 have been recieved from parishioners, which is magnificent and very much appreciated.
John will be in Church at Masses on the 14th and 15th July to collect outstand-
ing pledges and provide a brief report on the event.
He wishes to thank everyone for their support and encouragement.
