HCPT ANNUAL SPONSORED WALK Sunday 28th June

If you wish to Walk with us  -  please take a Sponsored Walk Sheet  -- You can always Sponsor Father Jude’s ‘old legs’ if you prefer  -  they may appear in shorts if the Summer ever comes! Many thanks once again. This coming Easter is the 60th Anniversary of the HCPT so we want to make it a very special Diamond Year of Joy and Fun.

 

MASS OFFERINGS:                                                                            Just a gentle reminder. We are so grateful for people asking us to say a mass for people… alive, well, poorly or gone home to God……  and people give a donation for the Mass Intention. When we are given more masses than we can actually during a week we pass them on to Father Thomas & Father Ephraim and their fellow priests to say. The issue is the ‘amount of the donation’. Quite a few years ago £5 was the minimum gift and times etc… have moved onwards and upwards. Most donations are of £10 nowadays. So can I ask you to consider the size of the donation you give for a mass and to know that in a variety of ways your donation goes to help people way beyond St Alban’s. Many thanks.

FATHER PETER’S GIFT TO US.  Fr.Peter’s legacy to us as a parish and as individuals is immense. In addition, however, the Diocese has formed us that he left Holy Souls a bequest in his will. This will be discussed at the next meeting of the Parish Council. As usual, all are welcome.
