CHRISTMAS CARDS: We all send cards to people we see regularly in church, and last Christmas we tried something different ‘ONE CARD FOR ALL’. It was very successful and due to popular demand it is back! At the back of the church you will find one big card to ALL of the parishioners; you just add your name to the card for people to read.
If you want to donate the money you usually spend on cards for your friends to CAFOD you are most welcome to do so through us. Just pop it in the CAFOD envelopes marked ‘Christmas Card Donation’ and hand it in to one of the clergy or put it in with your Sunday collection.
CAFOD WORLD GIFTS are gifts that make a world of difference. They change lives around the world. Would you like to give something a little different this Christmas? There are plenty of ideas in the World Gift Catalogue which you can find at the back of the church. Please take one home today - we have plenty so don’t be shy!
There are NO tickets left. If you would like to go on a waiting list please speak to Noel and Josie (telephone number below)
Tickets are now on sale from Noel and Josie, tel: 01522 826390, or see them in church.
Turkey dinner, Christmas pudding or sherry trifle, mince pies, coffee and mints.
Only £10 per ticket.
All profit will go to Hosanna House.
(If you can donate a raffle prize for this event we’d be grateful. Thank-you)
The Charity “Aid to the Church in Need” wishes to honour all people who are, or who have been, persecuted because of their religion. Westminster Abbey and Westminster Cathedral will light up their facades in red as a tribute to all who, in recent times, suffer injustice and risk their lives for their faith. You are invited to wear something red on this day to show solidarity.
The HCPT are travelling to Lourdes Easter 2018 can you help? Do you have foreign currency that you could donate, left over change from a summer holiday? Lincoln Group 106 will convert your coins to go towards our fundraising efforts. Please bag your donation and hand to the sacristy or the parish office. Thank you for your support!
It is time to start the Christmas shoebox appeal for seafarers. There are some empty shoeboxes at the back of the church, or you can use your own. Please let me have your filled boxes as soon as possible, so that I can take them to the Seafarers Centre in early December. Shoeboxes can be left at St Hugh’s Church or Rectory, or at St Francis Church, Bardney.
Hats, scarves, fingerless gloves, socks, chocolate, sweets, stationary, phone cards, playing cards, gents toiletries eg shaving materials, deodorant and face flannels are most in need, toothpaste and tooth brushes, are an example of the type of gifts you should put in your shoebox.
Many thanks, Rosemary Howe.
