Bulkington Union of Catholic Mothers
This Catholic women's group meet in our Parish Hall every month on Wednesdays at 7.30pm. All ladies welcome. Click HERE for more information.

Children's Liturgy
Every Sunday at Mass we have Children's Liturgy of the Word. Designed for children of primary school age, the scripture reading for Mass is explained in language they can understand. The children leave the Church with their catechists after the opening prayer and return in time to help with the presentation of gifts at the Offertory.

Guild of Saint Stephen
After a period of training the altar servers 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 at weekday Mass. During their time of training, servers learn to do all the roles that are needed to ensure that the Mass is celebrated properly. If you would like more information about the Guild of St. Stephen and being an altar server contact Fr. Michael Gamble. Click HERE for practice times and dates.

Piety Stall
The Piety Stall in both parishes has an excellent selection of cards, calendars, books, Missals etc. Open after both weekend Masses.
