Host Charity

Could you make the world a friendlier place by offering an invitation to an international student at a UK university, for just a day, a weekend, or 3 days at Christmas? Young adults from many countries would love to have a homely break and discover the real life of this country. HOST is a well-established charity which takes care in linking students with volunteer hosts. www.hostuk.org or call local organiser Alan Lodge 01845 527448. More info on this small charity next week.

Thinking of becoming a Catholic?

It’s not too late to join our little group for adults who want to become Catholics or who missed out on the Sacraments earlier in life. We will be meeting again this Tuesday (15th) at 7.00pm in the presbytery and there will be some people coming along who couldn’t come last week, so you won’t be on your own. You can contact the parish office to let us know you are coming, or just turn up on Tuesday.

Are you a carer?

Many people today have to care for family members who, through disabilities, dementia or old age, are no longer able to look after themselves and it can be a lonely task. If you are in this position, please come along to an informal meeting in the parish house, 1.30pm-2.30pm on Thursday 17th October, with light refreshments from 1.15pm. You may be surprised to find out about help that could be available and you will meet others with similar experiences. Hopefully we will be able campaign for more help for carers. Even if you don’t need help at the moments, your experience and support could be invaluable to others. Please sign the sheet in the porch if you can come.

Your prayers are asked for those who have died recently. And for those whose anniversaries occur about this time. May they rest in peace.
