Retired Priests’ Fund – Special Collection:

Today the Annual Special Collection for the Retired Priests’ Fund will be held.  With your help, we can build up the Fund to help meet the future needs of our sick and retired priests.  Special envelopes are available to use.  A leaflet about the Fund is also available which explains about the advantage of Gift Aid to the Fund.  Please be as generous as you can.  Thank You.

Canon Harry Stratton’s Funeral Mass will take place on Monday 22 January at 11am

at Our Lady’s, Edgeley.

Tea, Toast and Coffee will be available after 11am Mass next Sunday, 28 January, in the Parish Centre.  All are welcome.

Funeral Ministers:             Training will begin in the New Year to form Funeral Ministers for our LPA.  Funeral Ministers would, after training and “shadowing” their Parish Priest, be equipped to support the newly bereaved as they plan the funeral and be with them when needed.  Some may also feel called to lead Funeral Services in Church, Committals at the Crematorium and Burials.  If you are interested in being involved an any aspect of this Ministry, please talk to Fr. Geoff.  The Training Days are on 3 February and 3 March from 10am to 3.30pm at St. Vincent’s, Bramhall.  You would need to attend on both days.  You are under no obligation by attending the Training Days.

Serra Meeting:      Thursday 1 February at Christ Church, Heald Green.  Judge Humphries will talk about the Life of St. Paul.  Mass at 7.30pm, followed by a light supper and the talk.  All welcome.
