DO YOU WANT TO BECOME A CATHOLIC?

ST THOMAS AQUINAS REFURBISHMENT

Work is proceeding well with both the electricians and painters on site during the week.  The sale of the old chairs raised £2120  which will be used towards the purchase of new ones.  Although the Church remains closed, the Meeting Room is still ‘up and running’.

ENVELOPES READY FOR COLLECTION

If you make your offering to the Church using the envelope system, then your new envelopes are ready for collection at All Saints Church.

This year most people will have been allocated a “new envelope number”.  This is because we were ordering over 400 boxes of envelopes but only half were being distributed.  We have now been able to save a great deal of money by cutting the number down and re-allocating new numbers.

If for some reason you can’t find your box of envelopes, marked with your name, then please contact Jo at the Parish Office.

HOLIDAYS

Fr Prince returns from holiday this week but will be supplying in another Parish on weekdays, for the next three weeks.  He will be with us, in Bletchley, on Saturdays and Sundays.  Fr Christopher begins his annual three weeks leave on Monday 1st September and Fr Clement remains with us, in the Parish, for the whole of September.
