SUNDAY COLLECTION
Last weekend's collection amounted to £639.03. We are grateful for your generous support of the Parish. Banker's Orders amount to an average of £4000 per month.

BANKER'S ORDERS, GIFT AID AND WILLS
Have you thought of using a Bankers Order? It assists us with the safe handling of cash. Have you signed a Gift Aid Form? If you pay tax, then every £1 you give to the Parish is worth £1.28 to us. Would you consider remembering Saint Peter's in your will?

PARISH CENTRE COLLECTION
Last weekend's collection for the Parish Centre amounted to £317.14 - many thanks.

MISSION SUNDAY COLLECTION
The Mission Sunday collection amounted to £1123.01 rising to £1197.00 with Gift Aid forms you returned, the total rises to £1197. Please try to use Gift Aid for every gift you give the Church as every £1 becomes £1.28.

RETIRED PRIESTS FUND COLLECTION
Our Retired Priests Fund collection was postponed in September, though some of you put in your envelopes. The collection will be taken up this weekend. We have held over the envelopes already in and they will be added to the collection. Gift Aid envelopes are available.

NOVEMBER LISTS
November Lists are available at the back of the church. During November, Holy Mass is offered for the souls of all our deceased relatives, friends, priests and fellow parishioners. The List is a way of taking time to remember people individually. Put the envelope in the collection, in the basket at the altar or leave it at the office or sacristy.

RACE NIGHT
A Race Night will be held on 14 November at 8.00 pm to raise funds for a replacement carpet in the Church. Tickets costing £2.50 are available from the Parish Office
. Sponsorship and prizes are very welcome.

FATHER JOHN'S EAST AFRICAN FUND
The recent car treasure hunt and Tanzanian auction raised £310 which will be forwarded to Father John for work in Tanzania. A raffle raised £80 for the Parish Centre. Thanks to local businesses who supplied the raffle prizes and all who contributed and attended. A enjoyable auction night was had by all.

THURSDAY CLUB COFFEE MORNING
The Thursday Club Coffee Morning will be on Saturday 8 November at 10.30 am in the Parish Centre. There will be the usual stalls including baking, Christmas goods, bric-a-brac and so on. All donations of goods are welcome. Tickets cost £1.50.

ARMISTICE DAY
There will be a short service in the Eucharist Union Church, Glasgow Street at 1.00 pm on Sunday 9 November followed by the wreath-laying service at the War Memorial in Glasgow Street. Everyone is welcome. 12 noon Mass needs to be 'neat' to enable participation at the joint service.

SEVENTIETH BIRTHDAY OF SAINT PETERíS CHURCH
At the meeting of the Finance Committee this week, we decided to take the plunge and go ahead with the task of recarpeting the Church and panelling the Blessed Sacrament Altar. Both projects together will cost in the region of £10000. We have a legacy of £1000 from Tom McKay to start us off and the Race Night is coming up soon. I am making an appeal for 400 donations of £20 to cover the rest of the cost. I realise it is not a good time but if everyone has a hand in paying for the work, we will do it easily. Envelopes will be available and if you are a taxpayer and fill in the details on the envelope, your £20 will become more than £25 under Gift Aid. You can put whatever you want in the envelope. £20 is only a suggestion. This week's income with Gift Aid brings the total to £1500.

PROTECTION OF CHILDREN AND VULNERABLE ADULTS - MISSION STATEMENT
The Catholic Church in Scotland is concerned with the lives, safety, wholeness and well-being of each individual person within God's purpose for everyone. It seeks to safeguard the welfare of people of all ages who are involved in whatever capacity with the Church and its organisations. As a Church community, we accept that it is the responsibility of all of us, ordained, professed, paid and voluntary members, to work together to prevent the physical, sexual, emotional abuse or neglect of children, young people and vulnerable adults.
