Standing Order: Have you thought of making your donation to the church by regular standing order? This is a very easy way to give, you do not have to be a gift aider to do this. It also means that when you are away on a Sunday your offering to St Hugh’s will be made as usual. You can still have offertory boxes for the second collections if you wish to do so. Standing Order forms are available at the back of the church.
Gift Aid: If your financial circumstances have changed since you signed your gift aid form, and you no longer pay income tax please let the parish secretary know. You can ring the parish office: 01522 528961, or email her: firstname.lastname@example.org
This Sunday we welcome Fr Joseph who, as well as celebrating all of our Sunday Masses for us while Fr John is away, will make an appeal on behalf of St Patrick’s Missionary Society.

Your support helps them to assist with famine relief, the ongoing awareness of HIV and Aids, transport, water, education, justice, village churches, special needs, orphans and orphanages etc., in African countries, South America, and the Caribbean. Please pray for the St Patrick’s Missionaries, and if you can please give what you can to support them as they carry out God’s work. Thank-you. Website: www.spms.org
ST PATRICK’S MISSIONARY SOCIETY APPEAL: Fr Francis would like to thank everyone who supported the second collection last weekend; £657.33 (to date) was raised for the St Patrick’s Missionary Society. He also extends his thanks to you all for making him feel so welcome as he stood in for Fr John who is taking a well earned break.
