We will remember them.

PARISH  NEWS
NOVEMBER:  Remembering our Dead :  The annual Mass for the recently deceased will be in the church on Saturday, this week, November 10th at 12 noon. This is a special liturgy to remember and pray for all our departed family and friends, but especially any who have died in the last year (November 2017 – November 2018)  If you would like to have the names of anyone you know who was close to you and has died during the year, please fill in the slip provided at the back of the church and either put it in the Suggestion Box or hand it in to the piety shop or the sacristy.          All  other names of those who died before November 2017 may be written in the Book of Remembrance which will be kept before the altar where they will be remembered at Mass throughout the month of November.

“WHAT’S  ON”  THIS  WEEK”
TODAY, the bags usually distributed to collect items for the Bottle Stall and Tombola for the Christmas Fayre will be issued.  It was agreed to distribute paper bags rather than plastic ones as part of our effort to reduce plastic waste.
ALSO, please take a copy of the bishop’s pastoral letter if you did not receive one last week.
NEXT SUNDAY: there will be a mandatory retiring collection for The Retired Clergy Fund.
ALSO, it is Remembrance Sunday. Fr Phil will not be able to offer the 10.00am  Mass as he had been asked to attend the Civic Service.  Fr Callum Brown from St. Edward’s Lees will stand in for him. A poppy wreath will be laid at the church war memorial.
