HYMN BOOK AMNESTY
People can be so caught up in conversations when leaving Church that they absent-mindedly carry away hymn books ! Over the past year our stock has dwindled, so please have a look around when you get home and if you find a hymn book then please do return it. Thank you.

CLUSTER PARISHES INITIATIVES
 
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 Thursday 5th of January 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.
