CLERGY EDUCATION & TRAINING FUND – SPECIAL COLLECTION next weekend the annual Collection for
the Clergy Education and Training Fund will be held. On the training and formation of Priests, the future of the Diocese
much depends. Special Envelopes are available for you to use. A leaflet about the fund is also available which explains
how to make a regular donation to the Fund bt Standing Order, or how you can make your donation by cheque. It also
explains how to take advantage of Gift Aid for your donations to the Fund. I ask that you give your support in whatever
way is possible for the provision of the best formation for a new generation of priests. It is in every sense an investment
for the future of the life and mission of the Diocese. With every good wish, Yours sincerely in Christ.
+ Mark. Bishop of Shrewsbury
NANTWICH FOODBANK CHRISTMAS APPEAL TO CHURCHES Over the Christmas period Nantwich Foodbank
supports clients identified by agencies with additional foods and fayre in the form of a Christmas parcel. To achieve this
we need to gather extra provisions. Every Christmas Tesco supermarkets invite Foodbanks to have a presence in their
stores to receive provisions given on the day by their customers. This December 4th, 5th & 6th Tesco Crewe have invited
Nantwich Foodbank to collect food from their customers from 09.00 – 18.00. We appeal to anyone who would be willing
to volunteer a couple of hours to help man this opportunity.During Christmas 2013, 52 clients received additional
Christmas Fayre. We anticipate the demand in 2014 being greater than this and encourage anyone to offer time over these
three days. If you can help please contact Jane Emery Nantwich Foodbank Project Manager:
[email protected] or telephone: 07896 652209.
THANK YOU Shirley Ecob would like to thank everybody who supported her recent Cancer Research Fayre. Thanks to

DEPARTMENT FOR NEW EVANGELISATION (Shrewsbury Diocese) Third diocesan symposium, November 1st,
Ellesmere Port High School, CH65 7AQ 10am-4pm. Concluding with Mass of Reconcilliation. Lunch will be provided.
Welcome to our time together in prayer and worship. Today we come together to celebrate Mission Sunday. In
his letter for this day, Pope Francis writes with his usual simplicity and directness: ‘Today vast numbers of
people still do not know Jesus Christ …. All the members of the Church are called to participate in this
mission, for the Church is missionary by her very nature: she was born “to go forth”.’ As we know only too well,
this proclamation, this handing on of the faith faces particular challenges today. Perhaps we have to begin
again and it may be the best place to begin is with ourselves: how well do I know Jesus myself?
First Reading (Isa 45:1:4-6).
The great exile in Babylon – 597 to 539 BC – was catastrophic for the
Israelites. When eventually it did come to an end and it was possible once more to return to Judea and
Jerusalem, the ruler who made all this happen was a foreigner, Cyrus, king of Persia. Not surprisingly, he was
remembered with deepest gratitude. In our reading, God appoints Cyrus as the historical agent of his will.
Second Reading. (1 Thess 1:1-5). We begin reading today form the earliest surviving Christian writing, the
First Letter to the Thessalonians. At the time of writing, the Thessalonians were undergoing harassment and
persecutuion. In his opening prayer, Paul reflects on their fabulous reception of his proclaiming of the Gospel.
Gospel (Mt 22:15-21). Some supposed admirers try to trip up jesus and he very neatly turns the table on
them. However, there is more to the scene than clever verbal battles, as we hear.
