Monthly Rotas Update

A number of helpers have been in contact about rotas during the summer period and I have updated the rota to reflect these changes.

If you can’t make a certain date it is sometimes easier to simply ask someone to replace you rather than go through the website.

Please check the rotas regularly as names may change around to reflect the availability of helpers.

Finally, if you would like to volunteer for any of the church ministries covered in the rota, please get in touch with Monsignor Monaghan after Mass on a Sunday or email stcadocscatholicchurch.org.
