CAFOD HARVEST FAST DAY - Friday, 5th October

 This weekend (29th/30th September) our parish CAFOD representatives Dee Ellidge and Frank Heyes will give a short appeal at the close of  Sunday Masses on behalf of CAFOD.  The CAFOD collection will take place next Sunday, 7th October; there is an envelope for you to use inside your newsletter, or at the back of the church. 

Family Fast Day Prayer:  Creator God, in love you give life.  In your generosity you create the gifts of the earth.  As daughters and sons of the same Father, may we learn to share the plentiful gifts of creation, especially with those most in need.  Give us open hands and loving hearts, so that we take less and give more.  We ask that all may benefit from your goodness, and share in the fullness of life you have promised.  Amen.
