There are lots of different ways that you can get involved into the life of the parish. Many of these are the important ways in which we reach out to the wider community of Quinton and beyond. This page is just a small glimpse of the different groups that work in the parish.
Over 60's Club
The Over 60's group meet every Monday afternoon in the Parish Hall and it offers a wonderful opportunity for the more elderly members of the parish to meet socially. The group is regularly large in number, and is made up of different faiths. There is different forms of entertainment each week, but a game of Bingo (or two!) is a much loved aspect of each week! Occasionally, they go on day trips to local places of interest. If you think you, or a member of your family, would like to come along, please do contact the parish office.
Every Friday evening from 7.30 p.m., a group of parishioners gather in the Parish Hall for Bingo.
St Vincent de Paul Society (SVP)
The SVP is an important part of our parish community. They help us to focus on our pastoral outreach to Quinton and the surrounding areas. The SVP Society is an international Christian voluntary organisation dedicated to tackling poverty and disadvantage by providing direct practical assistance to anyone in need. The meet on Monday once a fortnight in the Parish Hall. If you would like to be part of the SVP or would like to contribute to their important work, please contact the parish office. Please VISIT OUR PAGE for more information.
Guild of St Stephen
For many years, Our Lady of Fatima parish has been blessed with group of dedicated Altar Servers. After a period of 12 months continual service, they are enrolled into the Guild of St Stephen.
St Stephen was chosen as the patron of Altar Servers because he was a dedicated servant in the early Church and gave his life for his belief in Christ.
The members of the Guild of St Stephen serve each Sunday at Mass, and sometimes during the week. During their time of training, Altar servers learn to do all of the roles that are needed to ensure that the Mass is celebrated properly, and with reverence. Please contact Fr Craig for more information.
The Parish Fundraising Committee
We are currently embarking on a massive fundraising drive to raise a substantial amount of money for two major building projects. The Presbytery and the Parish Hall are in need of essential works to improve them and make them fit for purpose. The Fundraising Committee meets on a regular basis to plan events and explore different ways that we can raise the money needed. If you think you can help with this, or if you have any ideas, please do let us know!
The Finance Committee meet approximately four times per year. Their functions include counting & banking the collections; Gift Aid; Book-keeping; Computer Records; Quarterly Accounts; Annual Returns to the Archdiocese.
