ANNIVERSARIES:  We remember in our prayers the repose of the souls of Elizabeth Welter (24/1/98), Joan Halsall (24/1/07), Ronald Sproule (25/1/12), Kathleen Roche (26/1/94), Tessa Noone (26/1/05), Hugh McGinley (27/1/98) and Roger Harris (27/1/09).  May they rest in peace.

 

FIRST HOLY COMMUNION: There will be a parent's session on Thursday 25th January at 7.30pm in the church hall. It is important that at least one parent / carer attends. The session will consist of watching a DVD as well as receiving resources for the programme, important dates and information. The first session for children will be on Saturday 27th January from 10.45-11.45pm.

 

GIFT AID ENVELOPES: Box sets of envelopes for 2018 are available in the sacristy. If you pay income tax, please consider using direct debit or the envelopes for your offering as the parish can reclaim from the Inland Revenue tax already paid by you on the amount of your donation to the Church. Please speak with Derek Lowson (chair, Parish Finance Council) or Fr Michael for further information.

 

OFFERTORY: Last Sunday’s loose collection was £590.41. Thank you.

 

PARISH COUNCIL MINUTES: From the meeting on January 17th 2018 are on the notice board and the parish website.

Re Item 3.4 “I have ordered from Jerusalem two olive wood crucifixes for use on Good Friday. The use of three crosses  will benefit both movement around the Church and within the liturgy. I hope they arrive in time.” Fr. M.

 

Re Item 3.3: Congestion at front of church when queuing to receive the Chalice: There is frequently a problem for people returning to their seats after receiving communion, at the sides of the church, because of the queue of people waiting to receive the Chalice. The gap between the chairs in the centre and side areas is quite small at the front of the church, where people need to pass one another, leading to difficulty for people to pass. Father Michael will look into the possibility of widening the gap by slightly changing the position of the rows. “I have moved only a few chairs; this week-end should help show if any more action needs to be taken.” - Fr M.

 

Re Item 4.4: Hall kitchen Refurbishment:  One suggestion was for a wall-mounted, plumbed in, electric water urn for making tea and coffee, so that it would not be necessary to fill and empty the existing urn, which could be a health and safety risk. If you think of anything else that needs updating in the kitchen, please mention it to Father Michael.
