FAST AND ABSTINENCE: Good Friday is a day of fast and abstinence. Fasting binds all who are between the ages of 18 and 59. On a fast day, one full meal is allowed. Two other meals may be taken according to one's needs, but together they should not equal another full meal.  Abstinence from meat binds all who are 14 years and over.

 

HOLY PLACES: The collection on Good Friday is for the Church in the Holy Land.  The gift is a gesture of fraternity and reverence for the Jerusalem Mother Church dating from apostolic times and first taken up by St Paul.

 

ANNIVERSARIES: We remember in our prayers the repose of the souls of Samuel Tomnay (14/4/95), Patricia Saliba (14/4/11),  Margaret Burns (15/4/03), Hettie Regan (17/4/93), Kenneth Sullivan (17/4/04), David Bean (19/4/03), Kenneth Allen (20/4/84)and Rosetta Crockett (20/4/08). May the departed rest in peace.

 

OFFERTORY: Last week the loose collection was £575.51. The collection for Easter flowers for the Church was £238.10. Thank you for your generous giving to the parish. The Easter Sunday collection is your gift to the parish priest for his personal support during the year; envelopes are available in the porch.
