SUNDAY COLLECTION
Last weekend's collection amounted to £803.37. 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 £364.87 - many thanks.

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
Canon Matt is going to Turin on Monday to visit
Father John and take him warm clothes and some books he left here. He will take your good wishes to Father John.

ARMISTICE DAY
Today is Armistice Day. There will be a short service in the Eucharist Union Church, Glasgow Street at 1.00 pm 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.

ANNUAL CEMETERY MASS
We will join our friends from Saint Brendan's and Saint Mary's Churches, Saltcoats to celebrate Mass in Ardrossan Cemetery on Sunday 23 November at 2.30 pm. We cannot guarantee the weather or a seat. If you have a folding chair and a rug, it might be wise to bring them.

IN YOUR TWENTIES OR THIRTIES?
A programme of events in Glasgow for people in their twenties has been arranged. Contact
Jenny@TwentySomething.eu for details. For a programme of events in Glasgow and the Three Towns area, send a text message to Claire on 07530 926497 or email Hugh@project2030.fsnet.co.uk or visit www.project2030.org.uk. These projects are sponsored by the Sacred Heart Fathers.

VERONA SISTERS' CALENDARS
The Verona Sisters will be here on 22 and 23 November to sell their calendars at £1 each.

CHRISTMAS RAFFLE
Christmas raffle tickets at 50p each are on sale at the stall. The first prize is a Nativity Candle Bridge, the second prize is a nativity set, the third prize is a box of Christmas cards with card holder and the fourth prize is a box of chocolates. Proceeds will be divided between The Innocents and the HCPT 207 Group.

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 £1805.

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.
