Tens of thousands of people, fleeing terror, war and destitution, seeking at great risk a life for themselves and theirfamilies, have been washing up on the shores of Europe. Thousands have died in the attempt. We can take some pride in the work of the men and women of our Naval Service in rescuing those in danger of drowning.

The web site has been developed to present helpful information and a sense of belonging. It is also an invitation to become involved at some level in the life of the parish and to use your talents in the service of others.

Wishing you every blessing
