Welcome Message from Father Kevin Hooper

Week Commencing: Sunday 26th October 2014

Father Kevin HooperTHIS SUNDAY: COLLECTIONS FOR WORLD MISSION
Last Sunday we supported wonderfully well the work of the Xaverian Missionaries. So that the APF (see below) does not miss out, there will be a second collection for the work of ‘Missio’ (the red boxes) this Sunday. Envelopes are now available. Best wishes to all, staff, pupils and parents, who are now enjoying their half-term holiday.

APF BOXES
Please bring your APF Red Boxes to St Francis for emptying. 
Your box must carry your name and address – there should be a label underneath.  If not please place a slip with your details inside the box so it can be returned to you after emptying. If you are not able to bring your box to St Francis, please call C. Adams 858199 to arrange collection. Many thanks for your donations.

INTERNATIONAL MASS
This annual parish celebration was to have been on Saturday 1 November 6.30pm. Sadly the numbers expressing a willingness to come and to support the social event were very few. It has been decided to postpone it until another time.

Half-term, we have realised, is never the best time to try to organize something! 

SVP

SVP members are very grateful for the generous parish collection recently and will feedback later as to its impact on its work.
SVP is in need of a treasurer in the parish SVP Conference. It is not too time consuming and would not have to involve the person in full SVP membership visiting etc. Please contact Lynne Long This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

JOHNSON ASSOCIATION
The annual second collection for the infirm and retired clergy of the Archdiocese, the Johnson Association Collection, will be taken at all masses on 1 / 2 November.
I commend this to you, though out of no immediate personal financial advantage (!), for your generosity. Yellow envelopes are provided for those wishing to use Gift Aid.

AUTUMN FAIR
Angela Cowley wishes to thank all who helped in any way to support, prepare for, run and tidy up after what proved to be a most enjoyable two days. This year we raised a fantastic profit of £3379-11. The ‘Friends of the Holy Land’ takings are separate from this figure. Thank you all for your great generosity. Father Kevin wishes to add his thanks to Angela, Val, Pam, Tony, Kevin and Pam and the whole team, especially those who worked behind the scenes. Special thanks to all parishioners for their donations and support.

ROSARY AND BENEDICTION AT ST FRANCIS’ CHURCH
At St Francis’ Church on Tuesday, 28 October at 7.30 pm there will be a time of Meditation and Rosary prayer with hymns concluding with Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament. All are welcome to attend this devotion for the month of October.

NOVEMBER: MONTH OF THE HOLY SOULS
As usual, there will be a box on the altar at St Francis’ church for you to include names to be remembered at a weekly Mass during the month of the Holy Souls. 


For further news from the Parish, please consult the Parish Newsletter (see below).

With every blessing,

Father Kevin Hooper
