Diocesan Child Safeguarding Survey
A strategic objective within the Diocesan Safeguarding Plan involves canvassing the views of a representative sample of children, young people and their parents on diocesan safeguarding activity in order to encourage their greater participation in such activity. The anticipated outcome would be to include their voices in developing the safeguarding service within the diocese.
To achieve this objective, we would ask that parents of children involved in the parish ministry (e.g. Family Mass, altar servers, Choirs, Liturgy Groups etc.) consider participating in the below survey:
The survey will be available until 14th November 2019 and we’d like to thank all who participate in advance.
Feast of Immaculate Conception: Monday 9th December
The feast of the Immaculate Conception is being transferred to Monday 9th December this year because the feast (8th Dec) falls on the second Sunday of Advent. This means it is not a Holy day of Obligation this year.
Christmas Church Cleanup: Saturday 14th December at 2:00pm
We would appreciate very much if you could volunteer on Saturday 14th December 2019 at 2:00pm for an hour or two to help clean up our Church, especially the hoovering. If you could bring your own hoover/extension lead, if possible, that would be great. We will have refreshments afterwards for the thirsty workers! Thank you once again.
Planned Giving Boxes
On the weekend of 14th and 15th December 2019, we are kindly asking if parishioners can collect their planned giving boxes for 2020. Where parishioners cannot collect them after masses that weekend please drop into the sacristy or parish office before Christmas to collect them if you can. Once again the Parish would like to thank all those who contribute by way of family offering envelopes, once-off, or occasional donations or by way of standing order. We hope to have the new boxes for the 1st and 2nd envelope collection ready also that weekend.
Thank you to all parishioners who came back to us in connection with tax refund forms. If you have not yet returned the form we would appreciate if you could send them in before 17th December if possible.
