THE RURAL CHILD CHARITY SHOPS are having a massive drive at our parish on Saturday 20th and Sunday 21st May from 9am to 2pm. They need men, women and children’s clothing, books, furniture and bric-a-brac. The proceeds go towards the running costs of the P.O.P. (Path Out of Poverty) Centres at Goedgedacht.  Please drop off all goods at the hall.  For more information, please phone Matthew on 071 193 4945. This will be a wonderful opportunity to do your “Autumn” cleaning!  J

 

MITE BOXES:  All Catechism children are asked to return their Mite Boxes and place them in the box which will be provided in the church this weekend.

 

Catechism Teachers – It would be appreciated if you would see that your classes hand in their boxes as soon as possible. Thank you!
