REQUESTING A MASS INTENTION
I you would like a Mass to be said for your Intentions, or for the Intentions of someone else, please contact the Parish Office, or come to the Presbytery so we can ensure it gets recorded in the diary.
It is only possible for us to receive one Intention per priest, per Mass, per day and so if the day you would like is unavailable we can either arrange for your Intention to be offered on another day or send to another priest to be said in another parish.
In order to avoid upset or disappointment please don’t present us with envelopes with dated Mass Intentions as we cannot guarantee that that date is available.

SOCIETY OF ST VINCENT DE PAUL

Following my talk at the Masses last weekend, I would like to thank all the parishioners who expressed an interest in learning more about the work done in SVP.  May I invite you all to join us on Monday, 4th November, 7 pm at All Saints Meeting Room.  We can then explain, in greater detail, what working/volunteering with the SVP would entail.  I look forward to seeing you there and indeed anyone else who wants to find out more about the day to day operation of the Society.  If you cannot attend, please contact me on 07743508627.  Thank You (John Scott).
