Not receiving emails from Fr Jeff? Each Sunday and Wednesday, an email containing the Sunday Service and then a Wednesday reflection is being sent to everyone on our email list. In some cases parishioners believe they are not receiving them. We have found that in many cases the email has gone to their ‘spam’ or ‘junk’ file. This happens with some email providers. If you haven’t received an email from the parish or Fr Jeff on these days, check those other folders and you will probably find it.
|Next Sunday: Fr James Collins OAM will be our guest preacher during our recorded service. His topic, “ The Eucharist and Community”|
ST PAUL’S PANTRY desperately needs food.
