You simply declare that you give funds to the Church. We do the rest. Why not sign a form today? We get back an extra 25p for every £1 you give the Church in your weekly collection or by way of a donation. There is no need to cancel or renew it. We simply claim in the income we receive.

USED PRINTER CARTRIDGES AND OLD MOBILE PHONES
There is a large green box in the foyer of the Parish Centre and a small box at the stall where you can place all old printer cartridges and mobile phones for us to recycle. Through recycling these, we can raise some much-needed funds. Thanks.

STARTER PACKS
Starter packs is an initiative of the Scottish Churches organised locally by Women's Aid. When people are allocated a house they very often donít have the basic necessities and many tenancies fail as a result. This initiative tries to provide a starter pack. There is a leaflet explaining our part in it.

The stall is open at all Mass times during the week and at the weekend. Large print Mass book are available from the stall. Sunday Readings in most European languages can be printed from the parish website. The price of the parchment and postage for papal Blessing has gone up drastically. We now have to ask for £40 for the Blessing. We have lapel crosses available - wear a cross with pride. There is a nice selection of candles available.
