GIFT AID ENVELOPES – will be available next week. Our organiser wonders if you could write your surname on the envelope this week (contents of the envelope will remain confidential)- our listing and numbering needs adjusting. Hopefully, in the new year, we might be able to encourage more parishioners who pay tax to gift-aid their offertory donation.
THE FLU BUG – has laid a few parishioners low this Christmas and to those who are still coughing and sneezing, we wish them a speedy recovery.
FEASTS THIS WEEK – Mon – St Sylvester, Wed- St Basil, Thurs- The Most Holy Name of Jesus. MILL HILL (red boxes) – £472.41 -this quarter
PARISH MAGAZINE – just wondering if parishioners or visitors would like to contribute an article to a parish magazine- any topic, eg, a holiday, a hobby, an adventure, an opinion, a recipe, places of interest-local or international, parish events, Mossley characters and worthies, incidents, murders (!), floods (!), Nuff sed!
STILL RAINING – a gloomy, dour week with little in the way of brightness, let alone sunshine. I suspect that we could all do with a fortnight in Hawaii – waddya say! Lovely to see lots of people at Church for Christmas and former parishioners returning to spend Christmas with their families. We wish Alistair and Rebecca well as they fly off to Australia this week to take up new jobs.
