There will be a special collection at all Masses over the weekend 15th / 16th September for the Aged and Infirm Clergy Fund which supports the retired priests of the Diocese. The fund does not have the resources to meet its obligations to our retired priests and ways are being sought to build up the fund. In order for the fund to reach a level that allows it to meet its obligations at present and in the future, we need to find about £10,000 per year per priest! If you can increase what you give, that would be gratefully received – every diocesan priest offers 3 Masses a year for the benefactors of the Fund.

If you are a tax payer and wish to Gift Aid your donation, please take away one of the envelopes provided in the porch. You must add your details to the envelope even if you already Gift Aid to the Parish and return the completed envelope next weekend.
