PARISH NEWS

Work at Our Lady’s Church Completed:

As you will see, the Scaffolding has now gone from Our Lady’s Church, and the front door is back in use. We thank everyone for their patience and understanding during this time. Work still needs to be done on the gutters round Our Lady’s Church, but this will involve just one day’s work.
Since last spring a lot of work has taken place with the Sacristy and Confessional Refurbishment thanks to our OMT contribution, and the Parish Centre Refurbishment thanks to donations from the Luncheon Club, Tea & Coffee after Mass and others. Now that the Structural work is complete we will be thinking of a Blessing and Dedication Mass and Parish Celebration to mark this new start.
We will let you know when we have something planned.

Rosary ‘Under the Cross’ – Reparation for the Sins of Our World:

Sunday 7th October is the Feast of Our Lady of the Rosary. We are all invited to pray a Holy Hour of devotions for reparation of the sins of our World. This will take place on Sunday from 3pm at St Mary of the Angels church. Please come and join us.

Many thanks to all who regularly prepare and serve refreshments after our weekend Masses. If you don’t normally stay behind, please consider popping in and spending some social time with your parish family.

MacMillan Cancer Support Cake Sale at Our Lady’s Parish Centre: 

Due to unforeseen circumstances the cake sale didn’t take place on 28th September as advertised. Apologies to those who came to support the event. The McMillan Cancer Support cake sale will now take place this coming Friday 12th October at 11.30am in Our Lady’s Parish Centre.

Christmas Shoeboxes -‘Give love in a box this Christmas.’: St Saviour’s invites you to make a shoebox gift which will be sent to a child in Eastern Europe this Christmas by the charity Teams4u. There are boxes & leaflets available in the church. Please return your shoebox by 3/4th November.

St Saviour & St Mary’s Our Mission Together (OMT) Project- Parish Minibus:

As you know our parish project for OMT is to purchase a minibus for use across the parish. We have identified a suitable 17 seater lightweight Peugeot Minibus. This vehicle is fitted with the appropriate ramps to facilitate wheelchair & disabled access. A new vehicle will cost in the region of £30,000 with additional costs for insurance. We have now applied to the diocese for access to our raised funds in order to purchase this or a similar vehicle. It is our hope that the vehicle will be available and on the road before Christmas. We will keep you informed as this project is progressed.

Funeral Plans Regarding Order of Service at St Saviour & St Mary of the Angels Parish:

We know that this is a very sensitive matter and that few of us like to talk about it.  However, in order to ensure that your wishes are followed concerning your funeral service, Fr Louis & Deacon Tony strongly advise that you clearly record your thoughts and instructions. In order to assist in this, a document is now available to you from the parish. You are invited to take a document home and when it is completed return it to the parish where it will be stored securely. There is recorded on this document the option of making an appointment with Fr Louis or Deacon Tony if you wish to discuss the matter. Please do take one of these documents with you from church.

Our Lady’s Christmas Fayre:

This Year’s Christmas Fayre will take place on Saturday 1st December 2018. We are now starting to collect the following items for the stalls: Toiletries men’s or women’s new & unused, Toys in good condition, Handmade Craft items, Bottles, Gift Bags/ Bottle Bags, and Homemade Cakes (on the day). Just bring them along and give them to Chris Duke. We also need volunteers to assist with managing the doors, and the car park on the day.
