Guide Dogs:

We were very saddened to hear about an event on Ash Wednesday when someone with a Guide Dog was criticised for coming into Mass with the Guide Dog in one of our Churches. People who need a trained Guide Dog may always come into any estlishment whether it be a Church, School, Hospital etc. They are always welcome, and should be made to feel so. The person with the Guide Dog was very upset by this event, and we apologise for any hurt that was caused. Perhaps those who criticised this person should also consider an apology?

Society for the Protection of Unborn Children (SPUC):

There will be a retiring collection for SPUC in our LPA Parishes this weekend 17th & 18th February. SPUC is currently campaigning to stop the decriminalisation of abortion, which means taking abortion outside the law. This is the most dangerous threat to unborn children and their mothers in decades. 

Spiritan’s Mission Appeal at St Saviour’s & St Mary’s - Thank you:

Many thanks to everyone who gave to the Spiritan's Mission Appeal last weekend. If anyone would still like to give to this appeal please place your offering in an envelope marked ‘Spiritan Appeal’.

Traidcraft Stall:

The Traidcraft stall will be open after Mass this weekend at St. Saviour’s, with St. Bernard’s 25th February. Please take this opportunity of stocking up with your favourite Fairtrade products or try some of the new items on sale. Please note that Fairtrade Fortnight will start on 26th February and this will be an opportunity to support the many small producers and farmers in the developing world by giving Fairtrade a go.

Our Lady & St Bernard’s Parish Formation Team:

Thanks to the support we have received. We have now relaunched the Parish Centre Committee and we will soon be restarting the Finance Committee. As we have said before, the Tea & Coffee after the 6.30pm Mass on Saturdays has now restarted, and we will be keeping this going until Easter, when we will review how it has been going. We will let you know soon when the next Meeting of the Formation Team, will be.

The new Tote Year will begin on the 18th February 2018. New envelopes will be available for present members in both churches on the 11th February.

Old Mobile Phones/Used Ink Cartridges:

The SVP are still collecting old mobile phones, and used ink cartridges. A collecting box is at the back of Our Lady's and St Bernard's. This is an easy way to raise funds for the purchase of our next holiday home, when the life of our present one is completed. Thank You.
