Mamma Margherita Club

Friendship and Fellowship

Yvette MacLeod

The Mamma Margherita Club is a parish social activity for the retired.  Its aims are:

  • To provide a warm, welcoming space for retired people of all faiths and no faith to meet on a regular monthly basis (usually 2.00-4.00 pm on the second Thursday of each month) to foster friendship and fellowship within our caring Christian community.
  • To provide the opportunity to celebrate Mass together, including occasionally, Mass where the Sacrament of Anointment and Healing is available.
  • To provide an ‘activity’ each month such as entertainment, informative talks, demonstrations, quizzes or games.
The proposed programme for 2024 is:
  • March – Countdown
  • April – Talk on Pilgrimage to the Holy Land
  • May – Talk on Blue Lamp Trust
  • June – Talk on Sean Devereux
  • July – Flower Arranging Workshop
  • August – Talk on the Empress Eugénie and her influence on Farnborough 
  • September – Whist Drive
  • October – Talk on Phyllis Tuckwell Hospice
  • November – End of year meeting and talk on Machu Pichu
  • December – Christmas Party and Quiz
The club is named after Margherita Occhiena Bosco (1788-1856) who was the mother of Saint John Bosco SDB.
