Banker's Orders amount to an average of £4000 per month. Each month £4000 is repaid to the Diocese for the building loan and levy.
Last weekend's collection for the Parish Centre amounted to £307.85 - many thanks.
Paying your collection by monthly or quarterly banker's order makes money handling much safer. Banker's Order forms are available in the porch.

A grid is on the notice board in the Parish Centre to allow parents to add their child's name for the Sunday of their choice on which they wish to celebrate the Sacraments of First Communion and Confirmation.

In 2005, a total of £2006.44 was sent to SCIAF in your name.
SUNDAY TEAS AND COFFEES
Many thanks to all the teams who provide tea and coffee after 10.00 am Mass on Sundays. The total raised this year was £2690.42.
Thanks to the Rainbows, Brownies and Guides for their donation of £650 and the Thursday Club for £150 for the use of the Parish Centre.
Father Matt acknowledges with thanks £500 to Parish support from the 50/50 Club.
Due to unforeseen circumstances, there has been a considerable delay at the Churches' clearing office. Hopefully, this matter will be resolved early in the new year and rotas can be issued to all who volunteered to help with Children's Liturgy and Sacramental Preparation.
PORCELAIN NATIVITY SET
The winner of the Porcelain Nativity Set was John Dolan.
A HAPPY AND PEACEFUL CHRISTMAS
Father Matt wishes everyone a happy and peaceful Christmas.
He who has no Christmas in his heart
will never find Christmas under a tree.
