NOVEMBER IS ALL SOULS’ MONTH: We will remember our deceased loved ones in a special way.
Please write their name on cards provided and place them in the basket. They will be remembered at the
11.00 am Masses during the month of November.
SATURDAY 29th NOVEMBER @ 10.00 am: We will have our annual parish Mass to remember in a
special way all who have been buried from our parish in the past year. Their relatives and friends will
receive a personal invitation to this Mass. Indeed, all parishioners who have lost a loved one at any time,
whether or not they have been buried from our parish church, are invited to this Mass. This is a special
November moment when we gather as a parish community to remember our loved ones, who have died, to
pray for them and to pray for each other.
MISSIO (APF) BOXES: These will be collected TODAY. With thanks. Pat & Ray Pearce.
CHILDREN’S LITURGY GROUP – LITTLE DOMINICANS: With generous and kind support from a
number of our parishioners, the group has started back up this term in earnest. We welcome all children of
Primary school age from Reception Class up to preparation for First Holy Communion (usually year 3). We
will be using booklets to keep the children's work in so they can build up the topics as we go through the
liturgical year. These can then be shared with the children's families and used as an aide-memoire for First
Holy Communion preparation when full. Please encourage children of lower primary (reception to Year 2) to
join in each Sunday. If you have an older child who has not yet received First Holy Communion and you
would like some support for age appropriate liturgy materials, please email or call Yanei on
[email protected] / 07958 385 411. We look forward to welcoming new and returning families, thank
