NOVEMBER CHILL – chattering of teeth could be heard in Mossley this past week, though the devastation caused by Cyclone Sandy, put paid to any complaint about vargaries of the weather. The sun did salute and bless us on Friday, if briefly, and resembling the frosty smile of a monarch. But the temperature has plummeted. We understand that later in the month work might well begin on the meeting room – fingers crossed. The sacristy has just had a lick of paint.

BOOK OF DECEASED – there is a book in the sanctuary for us to enter the names of our deceased relations, friends and parishioners, whom we would like to remember and to be prayed for at Mass each day during November.
