Parish Charity Christmas Card - traditionally in our Parish, rather than exchanging individual cards to everyone, we all sign one Card sending our Christmas wishes to all our friends and if you wish, make a donation to the Little Sisters of the Poor in the collection box provided. This year, I've had trouble finding just one card large enough for everyone to sign, so there are two! Choose whichever one you would like to sign. They will be available in the hall for the next three Sundays until 17th December, then displayed on the Church Porch notice board. (Jeannette)
The Acts of the Apostles. We propose providing an opportunity to deepen our understanding of this important New Testament book, by using the 'Take and read' book written by Dom Henry Wansbrough. Itís structure guides the reader with commentary and context to help increase appreciation of the story of the early Church. Taking 2 chapters at a time, week by week, we would meet to discuss what we have read. If you are interested in joining in please speak to Marie or Anne for more information and a chance to glance at the book.
