“CALLING IN OF DIARIES”.  Next weekend  I shall be in the sacristy to receive all 2012 diaries in support of applications for references for places in all Catholic Schools for September 2013.  Please see me after Mass when I will sign that I have received your diary.  Please ensure it contains the name, photograph, address, telephone and email of the parents.  Also, if you wish to know the outcome of your application for a reference, please staple a stamped, self-addressed envelope to your diary.  Thank You.

NEXT SUNDAY:  Retiring collection for SVP. 

Why not pay your offering to the Church by way of Standing Order, the more convenient way.  Just let us know by dropping this slip in the basket.
