WORLD MISSION SUNDAY
Unfortunately due to some confusion no Missionary Priest will be appealing on World Mission Sunday 22nd October 2023. However the Missio collection WILL take place that weekend. Sorry for the Confusion. Please set aside money for this very worthy cause. There are Autumn editions of Mission Today available in the Atrium. This year the focus is on Kenya and the missionary work taking place in Kibera, the biggest urban ‘slum’ in Africa.
OUR CHRISTMAS FAIR
Saturday 25th November, 11am – 2p.m. There will be lots of stalls and craft activities for the children. We will be looking for helpers to make this a great team effort and raise money for the Church. A sign up list is now available in the atrium for willing volunteers. This week we are kindly asking for any good raffle prizes/ fancy goods. There are boxes in the Atrium to place items requested. Thank you for your donations.
Wednesday 18th October 7.30p.m. We are having a demonstration of Christmas lights in a bottle by Julie Southworth at the UCM Meeting. Bring an empty clear bottle if you want to take part. All parishioners welcome. The UCM are asking for donations of teddy bears for their stall at the Christmas Fare, please could they be left in the Atrium. Thank you.
NOVEMBER DEAD ENVELOPES
Throughout the month of November the Church traditionally prays for the Holy Souls. Our beloved dead will be remembered at every Mass during November, so, if you have the names of anyone (or a list of names) who you wish to be remembered in prayer, there are specific envelopes available in the Atrium. Please return your envelopes by 31st October.
