Repository in the courtyard
The Parish Shop or Repository is a resting place for Christian items that are for sale. Our Parish Shop has been in existence in its present site since 2005 and before then was at the rear of the church for as long as anyone can remember. It forms on a Sunday morning a hub of activity in the courtyard and is a must stop destination for many items of piety and donated and pre-used goods. We also aim to celebrate the liturgical season in our window displays acknowledging the changing pattern of the liturgy and sacramental year. Easter and Christmas gifts are an important part of our stock from devotional crosses from Salvador to Christmas cribs to honour the coming of the Lord.
The sacramental seasons are celebrated, Baptism First Holy Communion gifts are on display and for sale, as well as traditional items such as statues, rosaries, scapulars, mass cards for all occasions and religious pictures for devotional use. During this time of COVID-19 restrictions the shop will remain open for a reduced timetable. Normally we carry a range of Traidcraft goods but due to restrictions we are not supporting this initiative at this time. It is manned by volunteers who are part of a rota system. It is a place where you can find that special gift or item and is open on Sunday 9.00 - 11.15am. Please pop in and be pleasantly surprised.
