The RCIA begins with an Introductory Meeting next Wednesday, 14th October at 7.15pm in the Meeting Room of St. Mary’s Presbytery. The program is open not only to those seeking to become Catholic, but also to baptised Catholics in need of First Communion and/or Confirmation, and fully initiated Catholics wishing to learn more about their faith. You will not be obligated to join by attending this informal meeting. For further details contact Marie Sartini on 07747 851 239 or just come along on the night.


SECOND COLLECTION NEXT WEEKEND: Next Sunday is World Mission Sunday when the Holy Father invites all Catholics to contribute to a special collection for Missio, his official charity for overseas mission. Thanks to your support, the Catholic Church is growing and many parishes can now take care of themselves. However, 40% of the Universal Church is still too new, young or poor to survive without our help. By supporting World Mission Sunday you are directly helping missionaries in over 1,000 dioceses bring hope and new life to people who do not yet know that they are precious in the eyes and hart of God.
