Our Christmas Fayre has been a wonderful success: a result of preparation beforehand – contributing bottles, prizes and other goods, gathering together items for and setting up the stalls, selling and folding raffle tickets, advertising, labelling prizes, baking and making cakes.
for a great deal of hard work on the day – a great team effort from
regular Parishioners, Visitors and the School. And a very happy
atmosphere throughout the afternoon.
In brief, a good day for St. Patrick’s Parish.
Money raised… £1,850
Doing something together for our Parish… priceless !

FRIDAY 23RD NOVEMBER 2012
In front of a packed congregation, Father Dawid Piskorz has been inducted as Parish Priest of Saint Patrick’s, Wolverhampton, by local Dean Father Brendan McCarrick.
Following the Induction Mass, Father Piskorz, who is a
member of the Order of St Paul the First Hermit said, “It was a
beautiful evening here at St. Patrick’s and it was a wonderful
experience having so much support from my new parishioners as well as
from the people from my previous parishes and schools: St Mary and St
John’s, St Teresa’s and St Joseph’s. It was truly uplifting to celebrate
Mass with all of them tonight.”
“I would like to thank all those who have helped in any way for my Induction Mass - various members of the parish community, too many to mention by name - but I do thank them most sincerely.”
The ceremony proved to be very emotional for Father Piskorz as he told me just after the event. “Lots of emotions were going through my head tonight: anticipation, joy, pride, also fear, especially when my former Parish Priest Fr. Kazimierz was reading the Letter of Appointment from Archbishop Longley,” he explained.
“The Office of Parish Priest to which I am called is truly challenging because of the responsibility that I bear for the care of my parishioners. It involves celebrating the sacraments for them; nourishing them with the word of God; sharing their anxieties, sorrows and joys; caring for the sick and the dying, etc..”
“It will be especially challenging for me due to my lack of experience and young age, so I’m hanging onto hope that nothing is impossible with God. With God’s help I can do it”, he added.
