Our Lady’s Women’s Group

OLWG meet in March parish hall on the first Tuesday of each month. Contact us if you would like to know more.

Social Committees

Social events are important for parish life as they help us get to know one another and build friendships, they are opportunities for us to bring friends along who are not normally associated with our communities, and they are sometimes a chance to do important fund-raising.

We are always looking for people with ideas and those who are willing to help out. If you would like to join the March Social Committee please contact us.

Children’s Catechists

We are always on the look out for helpers with the Children’s Liturgy, which takes place during the 11.00 Mass during term time. Contact us if you would like to find out more.

March Guild of Sacristans

A dedicated team of parishioners who work behind the scenes to set up for Mass and other services and look after the sacristy.

Flower Arrangers

A talented group of parishioners who produce some marvellous floral displays in the churches to reflect the different liturgical seasons.

Parish Altar Servers

Our Masses are ably served by our teams of altar servers. Anyone who has made their First Holy Communion is eligible to serve at Mass. Please  contact us if you are interested.

Readers

The ministry of Reader is an important one in the Church. By proclaiming the Word of God worthily and well during Mass and other services, the Reader helps all of us in the celebration to encounter Jesus the Living Word.

Readers are commissioned by the parish priest for this ministry after some training and preparation and then re-commissioned annually. They commit themselves to attending at least one retreat day a year.

Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion

Extraordinary Ministers serve the community by their dignified assistance at Mass in the distribution of holy communion, by helping out and sometimes leading Services of the Word, and by their taking the Blessed Sacrament to celebrate communion with the sick and housebound members of our parish.

The bishop commissions candidates for this ministry, who are then re-commissioned annually by the parish priest. Ministers are expected to attend at least one retreat day each year.

Musicians

We are lucky in March parish to have three organists and in Chatteris to have the parish organist top accompany our hymns. We are always on the look out for Cantors who would be willing to sing the responsorial psalm at Mass and for other musicians. Contact us if you have a musical talent to offer our parish.
