The Holiday is being run by our Parishioners Gerry & Sue Flynn – ENJOY TRAVEL – we have had many wonderful trips with them over the years. This super holiday includes sightseeing trips every day. Auschwitz, the Famous Salt Mine, Schindler’s Factory, Krakow, Sr Faustina’s Mass & White Water Rafting!! Dinner/B&B, Flights & Free Coach from St Alban’s to Airport. Brochures (WITH BOOKING FORMS) at the Church Doors. Looks fantastic.

 

GIFT AID ENVELOPES:  These can be put in the collection plate at any of the 3 churches at Good Shepherd / Holy Souls or St Alban’s and we will pass them along to the appropriate church.

If you are a Tax Payer or your other half is the ‘tax payer’ and you do not use a Gift Aid Envelope – then please do ask for a Box of Envelopes as your church is missing out on 25% of your money!!

GIFT AID PARISHIONERS AT ST ALBAN’S   Please check the list at the back of church to make sure your name tallies with the number on the envelope you are using. If different please write the correct number against your name.  Thanks

 

 

 

“ACTION 4 CAMBODIA”----- THEY ARE SPENDING OUR MONEY. On Monday March 7th we received an e-mail from Fr. Indon and receipts from Phnom Penh Commercial Bank showing that our $20,000 had arrived safely in the account of Jesuit Service Cambodia. Already orders have gone out to purchase school supplies, uniforms and bicycles and the staff out there are now looking at allocating ‘Bike’ and ‘Rice Scholarships’. Even the money donated by our three churches in February is now part of the budget out there down to the last penny. Fr. Indon and his staff are very grateful for your efforts and should like to thank you on behalf of the people of Siem Reap and the village of Champak Sa.
