BUCKETS of LOVE

Buckets of Love will once again be run this year.  The Archbishop has assured us that this is a legitimate appeal and encourages people to donate to this charity.  His letter is on the noticeboard. Each donation of R250 funds one bucket for a family for a week.  Please send your donation to Standard Bank, Thibault Square, CWD Grapevine account, account number 070868913, branch code 020909. Closing date: 30th November.

 

LECTIO DIVINA: Parishioners  who would like a copy of how to pray the Lectio Divina will find a hand-out on the Welcomers’ desk.  More copies can be obtained from the parish office.

 

JOY of the GOSPEL: A beautiful book containing all the daily readings for 2020 is on display at the Welcomers table.  The cost is R70.  They are being sold by the Missionaries of St. Francis de Sales.  If you are interested in purchasing one, please contact Margaret in the parish office where they will be available. These would make wonderful Christmas gifts!

 

MORTUARY LIST

November is the month dedicated to the Holy Souls in Purgatory.  Mass will be offered every week throughout the year for those whose names are on the Mortuary List. Envelopes are available at the back of the church. Please take one and record YOUR name and return it via the collection plate, together with your offering, before the end of November.
