MUSICAL TREAT FOR THE WEEK
At this special harvest time, when we have so much to thank God for, it is good to raise our voices with the London Fox Choir in this rousing version of the popular hymn ‘We Plough the Fields and Scatter the Good Seed’ (Matthias Claudius, 1782).
WITH EVERY BLESSING FOR THIS WEEK FOR PARISHIONERS & FAMILIES
UNIVERSE CATHOLIC WEEKLY NEWSPAPERS
These are available to order directly from the publisher (www.thecatholicuniverse.com or phone Michelle on 0743 661 7650 ). It can be posted to you each week. A 3 months print subscription is £42.00 – 6 months is £75.00 and the year at £140.00.
Many thanks to generous parishioners who have sent in donations to our churches. Your thoughtfulness is very much appreciated.
Instead of putting money in offertory envelopes each week, those who are able to make an offering are asked to complete a Standing Order Mandate for your bank, from either your parish office. We can email the document to you, if you wish, so that you can print off, complete and send to your bank.
Alternatively, you may still wish to write a cheque (payable to ‘Our Lady Help of Christians Church’ ) and post to the presbytery with a covering letter and one offertory envelope for gift aid purposes.
Donating by text / online: Please check the May Newsletters and use the links provided.
