We thank all who contribute weekly to the Church Envelope collection by way of Envelope or Standing Order to the Bank.  The new envelopes for the coming year have been distributed.  If you do not have a box of the new envelopes and would like your family to contribute, there are boxes available at the back of the Church or from the Sacristy.  We would appreciate if you would put your name and address on the front of the envelope.  For those who live outside the Parish & have been contributing, Patricia has your envelopes in the Sacristy.  We appeal to every family in the parish to lend their support to this most important parish “bread & butter” collection.
