URGENT APPEAL FOR KERALA. All parishes where there is an SVP Conference feel very close to the people of Kerala. English Martyrs support 2 twin Conferences and we hear from them regularly. This present and serious crisis caused by massive flooding has touched the hearts of many. Pray for them.

All SVP parishes have been asked to have a special collection this weekend so that practical needs may be met swiftly.

After the communion and before the blessing there will be a second collection at both Masses this weekend. Any help you can give by way of a donation will be greatly appreciated.

GRATEFUL THANKS TO Fr Ian Kelly for helping out this weekend.

TEA AND CAKES  will be served in the garden on Sunday afternoon from 2.00 until 4.00pm. We look forward to seeing friends old and new. There will be a selection of Christmas Cards available for sale this week.

THE MOVE IT GROUP began againlast week. We meet in church at 2.00pm for a programme of exercises (NHS approved) and then a cup of tea. New members will be made very welcome.

WELCOME TO BEATRICE ELSPETH HARRY daughter of Ryan and Kelly Harry, who is to be Baptised this Sunday morning.

THANK YOU FOR your generous support for our parish. Income last week was £2,036.00. This figure includes monthly standing orders.

THANK YOU FOR MASS STIPENDS RECEIVED, for Brian Cross’s anniversary; for Anthony O’Donnell’s anniversary; SVP Mass for Margaret Cottam LD.

OUR LADY’S OIL burns again this week for all the people in Kerala in India.
