Today the Book of Remembrance will be at the back of the Church for names of those who have died in the last year to be added. If names have been added in previous years there is no need to add them again. All those included will be remembered at the Mass of Remembrance on Friday, November 24th.

The idea is that you book a table and then you choose what you sell from it (as long as it is legal).  Any profit you make is yours unless you choose to donate it on. The cost of booking a table is £20.00 and there is a list at the back of the Church on which you can indicate if you are interested in supporting this event. There will also be the opportunity to buy raffle tickets.  If you would like to donate a prize please either bring it along on the day or hand it in after Mass.

25th November: The Annual Christmas Fair will be held in St. Augustine’s School from 12.00 noon – 2.00pm.  It is free entry and there will be various stalls including tombola, home baking, Christmas Crafts, teas/coffees, hot rolls, raffles, kids games with prizes, Throw the sponge at the teacher and many more! All are welcome to support this event. All proceeds go back in to supporting the work of the school

All Hall Users Please note: The refurbishment work on the ladies toilets is now well underway. As a result they are sealed off and unusable. Toilet facilities are available beside the Committee Room and at the toilet in the side hall normally reserved for people with a disability. This situation will last for a while so please be patient.

Day By Day: The November issue of this Booklet is now available for Parishioners who order it at the Card Stall.  Living Faith is also available for Oct/Nov/Dec.

 

With every best wish and Blessing

To you, your families
