PARISH CENTRE COLLECTION
Last weekend's collection for the Parish Centre amount
will be given later.

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 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.
