MASS INTENTIONS 2018:  The Mass Intentions Diary for 2018 is now open.  Parishioners who would like to have Masses said for their intentions next year are asked to contact Margaret in the parish office.

 

BUCKETS of LOVE:  Natalie Adonis will be collecting cash for this cause after the Saturday evening and Sunday morning Masses only this weekend. The buckets are R200 each. Any donations would be welcome.

 

The RESIDENTS at N.O.A.H. wish to thank all those who supported them by buying candles at our Monthly Social last Sunday morning.  The response from our parish was excellent and the funds collected will go a long way in helping to support the residents.  J

 

2nd COLLECTION last weekend for the 1st Advent Appeal amounted to R2 680,10.  Many thanks to all who contributed.

 

DONATIONS of STATIONERY are requested for our annual Christmas party at Garden Village on 16th December.  These articles will be used by the children in the new year for school. A box for this cause is available inside the church (near the noticeboard).  Many thanks.
