Street Evangelisation 13th July
Some twenty-five parishioners joined to make the Hill Rd Evangelisation event a grand success. Hill Rd shoppers lit candles for their own personal intentions and placed them on our stand.  Between 10am and 1pm nearly 100 candles were lit and over 30 written prayer requests were received.  Our initial embarrassment at publicly professing our faith soon evaporated as we realised our actions were welcomed and valued by most people.

After the event the candles were brought back to our church along with the written prayer requests which were offerred to the Lord during the weekend Masses
