As St. Francis prayed before this Crucifix in the ruined Church of San Damiano, Christ called to him:

Francis!
Rebuild My Church

 

 

 HOPE IN THE FUTURE
To quote Bishop John
“The programme is an invitation to every parish in the Diocese to recognise its potential and develop its missionary identity. It is designed to be a 5 stage journey. As the programme unfolds there will be resources that enable every parish, at whatever stage it may be in its development, to strengthen its mission. It aims to nourish those within the parish community while helping to identify what that community may be doing in outreach and service.

Thank you to all those who have agreed to join the newly formed Parish Support Team, which held its first meeting on Tuesday 7th Nov.
In the next 2 weeks the team will be reaching out to the people who support the ministries within the Parish to ask for their input to the special liturgy being planned for the 1st Sunday of Advent. This will take place that weekend at every Mass celebrated throughout the diocese.
If you wish to know more please contact Fiona Dunn (352240) or Mike  Davis (648309).   Please continue to pray for the Parish and for all people who live within our boundaries. 
Stay with us, Lord, on our journey.
 
Please read some more on our HOPE IN THE FUTURE page.

NOVEMBER PRAYER LIST - REMEMBERING OUR DECEASED
Please remember to place the names of your deceased loved ones in the box at the back of church. These names will be left before the altar throughout November, the month of the Holy Souls, and they will be remembered in all our Masses during that month.

YOUNG ADULTS VOCATIONS GROUP
A new young adults group (18+) has been established in the Diocese to provide young adults with an informal, but structured environment in which to discern, ‘what are you looking for?’ Read More.....

GIFT AID COSTS YOU ABSOLUTELY NOTHING
If you are a taxpayer and you sign a Gift Aid Form the Parish gets 25% of your contribution back from the government.
It is as simple as that!
Your information is confidential and, while it would be great if you could contribute every week, it is not essential; the amount reclaimed from the taxman is based on the amount donated and not on any fixed weekly amount.
All that is needed is that you sign a confidential form available from Fr. Paul or Mike Rowley (contact details on GROUPS page) and return it to them.
Only 50% of our weekly collection is Gift Aided so we are losing out on a very significant free handout from the taxman.
