MAY THEY REST IN PEACE

Paddy Scully, aged 80, late of Caernarvon Crescent, a much-loved member of our parish community, who died peacefully last Wednesday. Paddy’s Requiem Mass will be on Monday17th June, 10.15 am at All Saints Church.

A PLUG to Pay Your Weekly Offering via Standing Order. Our new procedures for counting/accounting/banking are much more complicated and time-consuming than before. Recommended by H.M.R.C., our Diocese have imposed them to enable us to be able to claim Gift Aid on loose change in the collection up to £1,000 p.a. per Church. However, on balance, it would be of great help if more parishioners paid by Standing Order, thus minimising the work-load. Please seriously consider this option.

If you can help in this way, please let us have your details: (either contact the parish office or drop the slip below in the collection basket) and we will send you the appropriate form. Thank You.
