Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults (RICA)

The RCIA is the liturgical and catechetical process designed for adults attracted by Christ and his teaching.  It supports them as they seek to respond more deeply and to enter into the Communion of the Church.  Courses are run regularly, and those who are interested are invited to contact FatherMichael.


Our choir meet every other Wednesday at 3.30 pm at church.  New members will be made most welcome. Please see the weekly bulletin for any changes.

June 2019: The Choir will not meet for practice during the Summer months. Please consult the website and Bulletin for news of Choir Practice in September, when new members will be most welcome.

Children’s Liturgy

The children’s liturgy is held during the family mass at 5.30 pm every Saturday during term time.  We are always looking for volunteers to help out.

Care Group

2015:  St Patrick’s is a registered Fairtrade Parish, serving fairly traded products at all its events in the new Hall.

The turnover for the years that we have been having these monthly sales and selling Christmas cards is a staggering £12,595. The two ‘Big Brew’ events held during the Fairtrade Fortnight at the end of February has generated £279.50. Our next ‘Big Brew’ is on the last weekend of February, February 28th and March 1st.
