Week commencing 15 October 2017


Mission Sunday

Nest Sunday is World Day of Prayer for the Missions.  BY her very nature the Church has to be missionary – from the command of Jesus ‘Go out to the whole world and spread the Gospel@.


Next week-end the second collection at all Masses will be for the Missions.  If you intend to gift aide your donation then you must use the special envelopes which are available from back of the church.   The yellow envelopes in your parish gift aid set must not be used.
