Diary Dates:

18th November: The Sale of Work will take place after the 10.00 a.m. Mass. It is getting closer now and time seems to be running out.   A list is at the back of the Church with the various stalls we have had in the past and spaces for any new ones to be added.  Above all we need volunteers to look after the stalls.  If you can help, please sign up as soon as possible.  Nearer the time there will be a meeting of all volunteers.  This will be the last big push for the current Parish Project with 75% of the money collected over the last two years going to Aid to the Church in Need and 25% to Mary’s meals. There are baskets at the back of the Church to collect items for resale.  Please note that all items must be in good condition and re-usable.  We are not able to take jumble or foodstuffs that are past their sell by date (yes, people do hand these in).

1st December: 60’s and 70’s Disco in the Hall from 7.30 p.m. – midnight.  Tickets will be on sale from next weekend for this event which will draw to a close the fund raising for the Parish project.  It will be a B.Y.O.B  and a B.Y.O.F. night.

The Stall has the new edition of Living Faith, covering October – December, priced £1.40 available along with Catholic diaries for 2013.  Why not pay a visit.

Over the past few weeks, a significant number of hymn books and Mass card text cards have disappeared from the Church.  If you have, by chance, taken them home, inadvertently of course, would you please return them as soon as possible.  Thank you.
