ENVELOPES READY FOR COLLECTION

If you make your offering to the Church using the envelope system, then your new envelopes are ready for collection. They will be available at St Thomas Aquinas Church today and from next Sunday at All Saints. You will find inside the box a white form that MUST be completed and returned to the Parish Office.

Unusually this year you will only find six months supply of envelopes in the box. A 12 month supply of envelopes will be issued in April so that the system is in sync with the tax year.
