S.V.P.News:

Over the next two weeks, we will use our boxes to collect money for the Fr. Sukpe Pick-up Truck Appeal. Fr. Sukpe is spending a year as assistant priest at St John’s, Broxburn. His home parish in Ghana – a very deprived part of the world – is desperately in need of a pick-up truck. Please be generous in your support of this very worthy cause.

200 Club Winner: Congratulations to Elma Brown (no.145), who won the quarterly draw for £200.

Break: I will be away on a two-week break from Friday, 30th September. The usual warm welcome to Fr Boyd, who will be here at the weekends.

Date for your Diary: Bo’ness ‘Churches Together’ Prayer Day

Christmas Toy Appeal: The Salvation Army is urgently appealing for new children’s toys/games, to distribute among needy and vulnerable families in the area, at Christmas time. If you can contribute, please either hand your donations directly into the Salvation Army, or leave them with one of our Pass Keepers and we will forward them. Please help if you can!

Children’s Liturgy …..All children between the ages of 3 and 12 are invited to attend – and very young children are welcome to sit at the back of the Hall with accompanied adults. We have a number of religious books that are suitable for young people – and would be grateful of any relevant donations of unwanted books, games or jigsaws in good condition. Finally- and very urgently – more Leaders are required. Full training will be given. If you can help us in this worthy cause, please contact Maria Ford.
