Newsletter: 18th November 2012

NOVEMBER is the month of the Holy Souls.  Please place the names of your deceased loved-ones in the purple box on the sanctuary.  Please do not place any money.  We will pray for the Holy Souls in Purgatory at every November Mass. 

SECOND COLLECTION today for the Sick and Retired Clergy (not applicable to those who contribute to ‘Together In Faith’.)

DIARIES 2012.  Thank you for handing in your diary last Sunday, in support of applications for a reference for School Admissions September 2013.  It is not too late to hand diaries in but please bring them down to the presbytery, as each diary has to be ‘signed for’.  Very soon Fr Michael will let you know if your application for a reference was successful or not.  Meanwhile, apply for the school place and Fr Michael will let the Admissions Committees at St Paul’s, Bishop Parker and St Thomas Aquinas schools know which children have references.

DIARIES 2013 will be issued at a meeting on Monday 10th December, 6.30 pm, St Thomas Aquinas Meeting Room, along with explanations.  For admissions September 2014 ~ please don’t think your child is too young for a diary:  if in doubt please come along.

DRAW TICKETS.  Please take an envelope of tickets home;  return the counterfoils or bring them to the Fayre.  Thank You.

Quote:  ‘A parish without a Christmas Draw is like a fireplace without a fire’!

Next week’s donation theme is Perishables and all suitable donations of the types previously requested.

HYMN

My God loves me,     His love will never end

He rests within my heart    For my God loves me.

His gentle hand    He stretches over me.

Though storm clouds threaten the day    He will set me free.

He comes to me    In sharing bread and wine.

He brings me life that will reach    Past the end of time.

My God loves me,    His faithful love endures,

And I will live like a child    Held in love secure.

The joys of love    As offerings now we bring.

The pains of love will be lost    In the praise we sing.
