FOOD BANK – a big thank you for the food left in the porch – so gratefully received – taken to the Food Bank on Thursday – all single items welcome.
A MEMORIAL BOARD – can be seen in church – under the 5th Station of the Cross- commemorating parishioners from St Joseph’s who gave their lives in the First World War. We remember them and others who lost their lives with affection, admiration and gratitude.
MUCH QUOTED – George Santayana – ‘those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it’.
QIGONG TASTER SESSION – 20 adventurous souls had a wonderful introduction to the art and practice of Qigong on Thursday evening. It is clearly a powerful tool for keeping healthy and agile; yet the exercises are gentle and suit all age groups. Do add your name to the list in the porch if you would like to attend the classes – the duration of the class would be an hour and held in the parish room.
PARISH CHRISTMAS BUFFET – is on Wednesday 28th November – earlier than usual. All are welcome – the list is in the porch. Most of the food we order from Mark and Spencers, so do put your name down earlier rather than later.
MOSSLEY CHRISTMAS MARKET – next Saturday at the George Lawton Hall.
LAST NIGHT OF THE PROMS – Friday at the George Lawton Hall.
ANNUAL INTERNATIONAL MUSIC FESTIVAL – Saturday 1st December at St. Patrick’s, Oldham – 7.30pm – see poster.

CHRISTMAS CARDS AND CALENDARS – available on the piety stall.
HOPE – that no one is suffering from SAD- seasonal affective disorder; it does strike at this time of the year. The past week had been really pleasant. We need to replace three of the heaters in church; hopefully, it can be done before the onset of the really cold weather. The trees have been clamouring for us to enjoy their spectacular colours
WORLD WAR ONE DISPLAY – until Sunday at St George’s Church. Over 450 men of Mossley did not return from the First World War. There are ten figures in St George’s representing those who died.
