Next Sunday Bishop Mark will be making a Visitation to St. Ambrose parish and St. Vincent’s parish.   Please do your best to come along in good numbers to support the parish and to meet him.

Christmas Raffle will be drawn on Sunday 10th December after 11am Mass. So please send in your tickets and money this week.  I can confirm that the Christmas Fair last weekend raised 701.50  - a magnificent total.  Once again, thank you to all who helped to prepare for it, to staff the stalls on the day, and all who came along to support it.


Christmas Concert at St. Joseph’s Parish Hall on Saturday 9 December at 7pm with the Stockport Male Voice Choir.  Mulled wine will be served with mince pies.  Tea and coffee will be served whilst people are gathering.  All are welcome.


Carol Concert:   There will be a Carol Concert on Tuesday 5 December at Davenport Methodist Church at 2pm.  Children from local schools will be taking part, including a choir from St. Ambrose School.  Please come along and support the children, and enjoy the singing!


LPA Reconciliation Service on Tuesday 19 December at 7.30pm at St. Peter’s, Hazel Grove.


Mary and Joseph (and the animals) will start their journey around the parish this Sunday. Please sign the list at the back of church if you wish to host them.  If you do, then please speak to the next person on the list to arrange the transfer of the nativity.


Parish Dolls:       These beautiful dolls are once again available for you to buy. After a very fruitful chat the jury of St. Ambrose, by unanimous decision, decided the price for each doll would be 7.50.  They would make a lovely gift.


Catechist Formation Day:            The next meeting for Catechists will be an opportunity for “Sharing Best Practice”.  Miss Caroline Farey (Maryvale Institute & The School of the Annunciation) will listen to your exchanges, and offer practical advice for the situations you are facing.  Venue: Our Lady’s, Ellesmere Port.  Saturday 13 January 2018 (10.00 – 11.50).  See the poster at the back of church for more information.
