A volunteer-run ‘Breakfast Club’ is starting in St Mary’s Primary School tomorrow! The aim is to ensure that every child has breakfast each school day, thereby helping them to achieve their potential, whilst creating a sociable environment where the children interact. More adult volunteers are required!!! If any parishioner has an hour to spare on the odd morning and would be interested in helping out with this new venture, please contact Michael Burnett on 07982 999 785 or by email to mburnett@blueyonder.co.uk

RCIA: This is a process of faith formation, by which adults who choose to do so, are welcomed into the Catholic Church. Weekly sessions guide enquirers, who seek to become full members of the Catholic Church, through the teachings and beliefs of the Church and what being ‘Catholic’ means. These sessions are also a great opportunity for all Catholics to learn more and also welcome and support those new to Catholicism.

ALL ARE WELCOME to attend the weekly sessions, which are held in the Hall each Tuesday evening at 7.30 pm. For more information, please contact Callum Timms on 07817 510 850 or by e-mail to callum.timms@rcboness.org

In your charity, please remember in your prayers, Fr Carr, Gerry Henderson, Maureen Simpson, Eileen Smullen, and all the sick and housebound. Also, Jean Bell, Colin Elder, Frank Maguire, Michael McCullough, Margaret McGeachan, Angeline McKenna,
Annie MacPhael and Scott Romanes, whose anniversaries occur about this time.
