 7th JANUARY 2018, The Epiphany of the Lord
(Women’s Christmas or Little Christmas)

StVincents10

Traditionally the last day of Christmas and as Fr. Paul points out in our Newsletter -

 “In many ways this is our Christmas Feast, when we celebrate the Good News of the Saviour’s birth revealed at last to us.”

 

WELCOME
Last Tuesday we welcomed Bob Hayes, a church student for our diocese of Salford, who is with us throughout this month of January on his parish placement.
I am sure you will make Bob welcome, and hopefully he will enjoy his stay with us here at St. Vincent’s.

WEEKDAY MASS
It is a real blessing to be able to have Mass each morning during the week at 9.30am. This is always a time for peace and quiet with the Lord, a time for much grace and many blessings.
So if you are able, do try and join us for Mass on at least one day during the week.

 San Damiano Cross Rev2HOPE 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.

A Big Thank You to all who took part in the procession of gifts last weekend to recognise and celebrate the numerous groups within the Parish.

A Big Thank You to each and every one of you for all you do, and all you are, helping to make St Vincent’s a very special place


                               Stay with us, Lord, on our journey.

ROCHDALE FOODBANK
Sadly Rochdale Foodbank remain under pressure to meet the demand so please continue with your very generous donations. If you don’t already donate please consider contributing something however small whenever you can.
 The website www.rochdale.foodbank.org.uk is now updated regularly with lists of food products which are in short supply and those of which there is a surplus. To find this, from the home page, click on Give Help and then Donate Food. Thank you all once again.
Items urgently needed at present are :- Semi skimmed UHT milk 1 litre packs, sugar 500g or smaller packs, but all contributions very welcome

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.
