Collections: The Offertory Collection last weekend realized £540.43 and the Second Collection, £145.09.
A great big ‘Thank you’ to all who contributed to our Christmas Appeal for toys, food and donations. An excellent response – as usual – from St Mary’s! A very happy Christmas to everyone, from the Salvation Army and the Storehouse.
Prayer Board: A ‘Prayer Board’ can now be found near the front of the church, next to the statue of the Blessed Virgin Mary, and small cards next to the board can be used to share your prayer intentions should you wish to do so. Please also take some time to read the intentions on the board and to join in prayer for them too.
In your charity, please remember in your prayers, Fr Carr,Eileen Smullen, and all the sick and housebound. Also, Fr Doherty, Lilian Barber, David Brown, Sam Coward, Ian Hutchison, Annie Kennedy, Mary Lourie, Thomas McGeachan and Alice Raeburn, whose anniversaries occur about this time.
