Comments have been made that Father Jude drinks too much wine…but these are altar wine bottles!!!! Collected over 6 months AND still no takers…last chance to collect.

 

 

TAI CHI CLASS

Would anyone from St. Albans or Holy Souls be interested in a Tai Chi class? Mavis from Good Shepherd is trying to arrange one if we have enough for a class.

It would probably be one afternoon but can't be fixed without numbers.

Thanks very much, Mavis

 

 

MASS FOR THE DECEASED OF 2015 This Saturday

We are holding a special Mass here at St Alban’s this Saturday 23rd January at 12 Noon to commemorate all those who have died in the Parishes during 2015.

This will be a lovely mass to remember your loved one and each name will be read out during the Mass and we will light a candle for everyone who has died in 2015.

Everyone’s names are on the St Francis Crosses on the tree at the front of church and at the end of mass we will give them back to the families.

All parishioners and friends are welcome to come to this Mass

It may be that some parishioners have lost family and friends who have been buried elsewhere and we can light candles for them as well  -- but we will need their names.
