  • Weekly newsletter
    • E-newsletter – Up until now we have been sending the newsletter out to our parish email list as an attachment. This bulk mailing has recently been blocked by our email provider and so we are now offering to send out an e-newsletter via the mail distribution facility called Mailchimp. You have to sign-up to receive this. You can do that by entering your email address in the green banner that appears at the top of this webpage. Please be aware that the email address associated with Mailchimp is a new one dedicated for this purpose only (ssjkchmp@gmail.com). Once  you sign up you may need to check your spam folder initially to find messages and then approve the email as ‘not spam’ or similar. Please continue to use the parish email address for all correspondence. The newsletter will continue to be posted on the website also in the usual place.
