Notices and Reports Happy Christmas to everyone! The priests of the parish, Fr Marcus, Fr Stephen and Fr Andrew would like to thank everyone for their kind generosity over Christmas. ALso a big thank you and well done to all those who helped to organise our services, those who beautified the churches, visited the sick, served the altar, sang in choirs and those who helped in so many other ways. It was a very very blessed Christmas with almost 1200 at the ten masses across the three centres in the parish. This weekend the second collection will also be towards the parish building fund Christmas cards option - The following would like to wish everyone a very blessed Christmas but are not sending cards but instead making a charitable donation: Fr Marcus, Maureen Francis, Rena Gathercole, Laura and Sid Wyness No morning adoration/exposition from 24th-29th December and on 1st January. Tuesdays continue as usual. AID TO THE CHURCH IN NEED - Thankyou to who took part in our family fast day and raised money to help the poor and suffering Christians in Iraq and Syria. We have raised so far £1233.93. The fund will remain open until the end of Christmas. Crib offerings at St Augustineʼs will also go to this fund. Servers event on St Stephenʼs day (boxing day).
