The Children’s Liturgy Team would like to thank the whole parish for supporting our Mary’s Meals Backpack Project. We made 28 full backpacks and collected 4 huge boxes of spare items to gift to Mary’s Meals.
Thank you for a fantastic response, we were overwhelmed by your support. All the items donated were collected by Mary’s Meals last week.
The statue of Our Lady of Walsingham will be visiting Clifton Cathedral on 20th-22nd February and there is a full itinerary for the couple of days.
It has been agreed with the Bishops of England and Wales that the re-dedication of England as the Dowry of Mary will take place on the Feast of the Annunciation, 25th March, 2020.
We are invited to prepere for the occasion by making a Novena (nine days of prayer).

Ypu can maximise your weekly Offering by getting the Government to pay an extra 25% at no cost to you, by joining GIFT AID. This can be done in two ways – Firstly: by Bank Standing Order (monthly) or secondly, using the envelope scheme, whereby, you place your weekly offering on the collection plate. Either way is very beneficial to the Parish, especially when every penny counts! Please contact Vic Steadman via the Parish web site for details. Thank you.
