CHANGE IN MASS TIME – when the clocks go back on 28th October, we thought we would move the 9.30am Sunday Mass to 10 o’clock for the winter months – thinking that 10am is perhaps more ‘user friendly’. Nothing is lost by trying it out. Our hope is that parishioners will not be unduly inconvenienced.

CAFOD AUTUMN FAMILY FAST – the envelopes are in the porch and can be returned next Sunday. We are invited, this coming Friday, to fast from something, however small, to show our solidarity with the millions who go hungry every day.

SACRAMENTAL PROGRAMME – there will be a meeting for the parents of the children who are to receive Confirmation and Communion next year on Wednesday 17th October, at 6.45pm in church.


On Saturday 20th October – tickets £17.50 – contact Doreen 833983.

CHRISTMAS FAIR – list of stalls in the porch – do add your name if you would like to help out at a stall.

MOSSLEY LIFEBOAT EVENT – Thursday at 1.30-3.3pm . G L Hall.

IT’S A KNOCK OUT – 30th September 11.30-4pm in Mossley Top Park.

HIBERNATING TIME – in October the hedgehogs, dormice and tortoises usually hibernate; sweet chestnuts will be ready for roasting, walnuts for pickling and sloes waiting to be steeped in gin – though damsons and sloes are rather scarce this year. The weather has been autumnal of late and the rainfall continues to break all records. I suspect that hibernation might be a good idea.

The painting of the church is coming on apace. The wall behind the altar has been completed this week, the painter exhibiting remarkable dexterity on the ladder and scaffold. Hopefully, the church will look fresher and brighter.
