OFFERTORY COLLECTION
Last weekend's Offertory collection amounted to £666.86. 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? The recession is hitting everyone. Thanks for the support you manage to give the Parish.

PARISH CENTRE COLLECTION
Last weekend's collection for the Parish Centre amounted to £305.75 - many thanks.


READERS
Next weekend's readers are Katrina Pollock at 5.30 pm, Sarah Guthrie at 10 am and Jim Delahunt at 12 noon.

RITE OF CHRISTIAN INITIATION OF ADULTS (RCIA)
Is there any one out there who would like to join the RCIA group? It will start within the next couple of weeks.

ITALIAN NIGHT
The Italian Night is booked to take place on Friday 27 November. This is the second partnership event between the Italian Twinning Group and Parish Centre funds.

RACE NIGHT
A Race Night with light supper in aid of the Parish Lourdes Group will be held in the Parish Centre on Friday 13 November. Tickets costing £3 each are available from Myriame Sammons. Half of the money raised will go to the Lourdes Fund and half to the Parish Centre. All donations are welcome. Thank you.

CARITAS IN VERITATE
Caritas in Veritate, the new Encyclical Letter of Pope Benedict on finance, banking and justice in our society, is now published. It can be purchased at the stall for the discounted price of £1.

CROSSHOUSE HOSPITAL
If you or a family member is going into Crosshouse Hospital and wishes a visit from the hospital Chaplain, please let us know. If you or a family member is housebound, please let us know. Unless told, we donít know about it.

HELP FOR THE SOLDIERS IN AFGHANISTAN
Thank you for all your kind donations to our shoebox parcel appeal. We now have enough to fill the next delivery of boxes. As our next delivery is going to arrive at Christmas time, we are looking for small Christmas things to put into them. We would ask if anyone would like to write a card or letter, donate any writing materials, give a small Christmas pudding or any other small Christmas item. We would greatly appreciate it. Thanks.

PARISH REGISTRATION
We still do not have an up-to-date register of Parishioners - even those who come to Mass. Many of you have filled in the little green forms - thanks - and that is all you have to do. Some havenít got round to it yet and we would be grateful if you would do it. The Parish website has a link for you to forward your name, address and phone number.

NEW LICENSING LAWS
Due to the new laws, a drinks license for the Parish Centre must be obtained 28 days in advance. If children are to be present, then the number of children must be noted on the application form. There can be no exceptions to the legislation. Please keep this in mind if you wish to use the Parish Centre. We are unable to get a licence at short notice, for example, a post-funeral reception. Arrangements can be made with a caterer.

SAINT ANNE'S GUILD
Saint Anne's Guild meets in the Parish Centre at 7.00 pm every Tuesday. New members are welcome.

THURSDAY CLUB SUNDAY TEAS
Canon Matt wishes to put on record our thanks to the members of the Thursday Club for the sterling work of being a Sunday morning Tea Team for many years and for all the other work they do. The Ladies feel that it is now time to hang up their aprons and we are grateful to them for all that they have done. Is there a group of friends who would like to form a new team? Please speak to us about it.

SAINT VINCENT DE PAUL SOCIETY COFFEE MORNING
The Saint Vincent de Paul Society Coffee Morning will be held on Saturday 31 October. There will be various stalls and a prize raffle. Donations for any stall are most welcome. On this occasion, the Conference plans to divide the proceeds of the event between Our Lady of the Wayside Works Conference which runs the Ozanam Day Centre for the Homeless in Glasgow and the Holy Spirit Works Conference in Greenock which supports the Inverclyde Drugs Project. As always, we ask for your generous support and hope
with your help, to bring real practical assistance and Christian love and solidarity to the many men and women in need who use and depend on these facilities

HILLHOUSE CARE
Hillhouse Care is the new name for The Innocents in Kilmarnock and continues to care for children in need as before. They always welcome children's clothing in good condition. Contacts are 01563 523362 and
HillhouseCare@gmail.com.

THANKS
The Thursday Brownies and Guides raised £600 for the Parish Centre at their Bingo Night.

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.
