NEW CHURCH ROOF You may remember me telling you over twelve months ago that I had been notified that Church will require a new roof soon. We still have a parish debt which we are working to repay. It is important that we also begin to raise funds towards the cost of the new roof as it will help our cause if we seek a loan from the diocese to show that we have raised a certain amount. If you can think of ways you can hold an event with your family, friends and neighbours please do so. You will also see a collection tower in the narthex in which I hope visitors and those attending funerals etc will feel able to put a donation. I understand that as of today we are speaking of about £100,000-00 but of course this may increase depending upon when it will need to begin. Please bear in mind that we still have a parish debt of around £54,000-00.


Divine Mercy Devotions on the third Sunday of the month at 3.00pm


The lists for Candles at the shrines for 2020 are on the notice board in the Narthex. The candles cost £5 each and burn for a week. If you wish to nominate any for a loved one or specific intention, please place your donation in an envelope and give it to Fr. Glover with a note of which shrine you would like the candle lit at and the intention for which it is to be lit.


The Rosary is recited in Our Lady’s chapel following the 9.00am Mass on Wednesday.


St. Anne’s Book of Remembrance. At the Noon Mass on the first Saturday of each month I shall place “The Book of Remembrance” on the altar and the Mass will be offered for the souls of all those whose names are contained in the book. If you wish the name/s of members of your family recording in the book, please complete one of the slips that are available in the Narthex and return it to Fr. Glover with your donation. This will mean that your loved ones will be remembered at Mass each month, in addition to the masses you would normally ask to be offered on their anniversary or in memory of their birthday.

Entered in the book of remembrance under number:


Going into hospital? Don’t forget to inform Fr. Glover on 740 2448 who will advise the Catholic Chaplain or call the chaplain Fr. Matus on 834 4104.


Places in our school. It is essential that any catholic parent who wishes their child to have a place at our school registers them as soon as possible. PLEASE DO NOT WAIT UNTIL YOUR CHILD IS READY TO GO TO SCHOOL as you may find a place isn’t available. If you haven’t registered your child even if a place is available your child’s name and offer of a place will not have been passed to the local education authority by the school and subsequently a place at a non-Catholic school may be given.

Prayer Group Monday 7.30pm until 8.30pm. 2 Thistle Bank Close.
