St Aelred's World War 1 Centenary Labyrinth During 1-16th November. The Parish will honour all those who
died in wars of the last century with a 'Poppy Labyrinth' on the lawn. (See the leaflet for an explanation). The children
of the Parish will help in making the poppies. We would also like to gather the thoughts, prayers, photos and
memories of Parishioners whose families have been affected by any war in any part of the world since 1914. Would
you be willing to lend some photos or write a few words, or let Bernadette Broderick or Pippa Bonner write these
down with you, by name or anonymously? They would go into a Parish booklet and be displayed in the Hall during the
time of the Labyrinth. The purpose of this Parish project will be to continue to pray for Peace. Please contact
Bernadette Broderick on 875311 or Pippa Bonner 547394 with any queries. Thank you - Pippa Bonner.

The Ebola outbreak hits hardest at the poor and the vulnerable in affected countries, where healthcare systems are
fragile, and where people are unable to go to their farms or earn a living in the market-place. A huge concerted effort
is needed to contain the spread of the Ebola virus. The World Health Organisation has reported that the number of
people infected with the Ebola virus in West Africa has reached 10,000, with nearly 5,000 deaths. Mali is the latest
country in the region to record a death. A box will be left at the church entrance for your contributions. Please take a
Gift Aid form to accompany your offering. For every pound you contribute, Gift Aid will increase the value of the
donation by a further 25p.
