MASS INTENTIONS   
Although I endeavour to celebrate Masses on dates requested, a Requiem Mass is the one occasion when a pre-arranged Mass may have to be moved to the next free date. I hope parishioners  understand and feel reassured that Mass for their loved one will be celebrated with prayerful devotion despite the upset caused in having had to change to a later date. Fr John.

CLUSTER PARISHES INITIATIVES
 
Thursday 5th of January
There will be formation for those in ministry in the coming months. We’re beginning with our Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion. This will begin at 7pm and take the form of Adoration at St Mary of the Angels, Camelon, followed by a talk on the Eucharist and fellowship. Please mark in your diary and take advantage of this chance for renewal and celebration of your ministry, for yourself and those to whom you minister. All Eucharistic Ministers from all the parishes are invited to join us.  Due to this there will be no Novena on Thursday 5th of January.
 
Fr John writes…..Once again may I thank you all for your support, understanding and encouragement over the past year and for prayers, cards and seasonal gifts received – all of which are greatly appreciated. In case you missed the opportunity last week, please accept a stylish Christmas gift pen from me as you leave Mass today !
