Volunteers are needed to help with plans for the Lourdes Hospitalité Christmas tea party for supported pilgrims at St Gabriel’s Church, Ormesby, on Saturday December 1.

Mass is at 2.30pm followed by the tea party in the hall afterwards.

All Hospitalité members are welcome but please let us know if you are coming to enable us to plan catering.

We also need the following help…

*Providing transport for two supported pilgrims from the Redcar and Normanby areas.

*Washing our china crockery before use at the tea party. This will take place at the Curial office on Monday November 26 from noon and Tuesday November 27 from 9am onwards.

There will be a band and a singer and the night will also include a finger buffet.
