There is a lot going on today in our parish centre –I know you all ensure that the Christmas cards you send reflect the true Christian message, but it is not always easy to find such cards – so come and see the cards from our Repository on sale in the hall today after each Mass.

Maggie will be selling her marvellous homemade Cribs –why not give one as a present to your family or friends, (it may rank as a way of evangelising!)   – proceeds to the Church in need charity

Our course on the Bible starts today, (also in our hall) after the 8.30am Mass; the topic is “The Bible as Dialogue” – a general overview of the structure of the Bible – a great chance to become more scripturally literate!

Tea and coffee will still be available after each Mass as usual.

Memory test!   Why are you making it a priority to come to the 6.30pm Mass at St Andrews on Wednesday the 13th December? (If you need one, a clue can be found elsewhere in this newsletter!).

This afternoon we will be having our Thanksgiving and Remembrance Service at 3.00pm – a chance for the parish to come together to remember and pray for the souls of the deceased family and friends who meant so much to us. The service will last about 45 minutes and light refreshments will be available in the hall afterwards.
