In church there are statues with lamps burning by them representing prayers offered. Why not sponsor a lamp before one of the family portraits, i.e. a statue of a saint in church. £2 for a lamp before St Peter, Our Lady of Walsingham, Our Lady with Child Jesus, the Holy Family, the Transfiguration, the Good Shepherd or St Anthony of Padua (patron of young people)?

If you would like to sponsor a lamp before a favourite saint in church, please contact Fr Michael.
