Upcoming Service Activities
Ushers Urgently needed for Sunday Masses

As more people return to Sunday Mass, we need volunteers to assist with ushering during the Saturday 5pm and Sunday (7:30, 9:30 and 11:30am) Masses.

The Chapel is open for over-flow on Sunday at 9:30 and 11:30am and one additional usher is needed.

The primary role of the usher is to ensure that people find sitting places with the required 6ft gap to stay safe while attending Mass.

Please Contact Bro. David Hobson (PGK) or Aboyi Olokpo (GK) to add your name to the list of available volunteers for the Mass you usually attend. They will also provide you with Guidance/Training.

Remember this: If everyone expects that someone will do it, No-one will do it.
