STATIONS OF THE CROSS: This Friday at 10am in church.
A SERVICE OF PENANCE AND RECONCILIATION will be held on Tuesday, 4 April at 7pm in Church. This is a wonderful way to prepare for the celebrations of Holy Week and Easter.
THE ENQUIRY GROUP will meet this Thursday at 7pm in the church hall. Please keep Sarah, Sophie and James in your prayers as they prepare to be received into full communion with the Catholic Church at our Easter Vigil service.
SVP: Many thanks to those who have donated warm clothes, coats, etc to support the refugees. More are still needed. Please leave them in the entrance to the hall. If you are aware of anyone who would welcome a visit from one of our members, please hand in their names and addresses.
MANY THANKS to the Ladies Group for their monthly Coffee Mornings and cake sales which have raised over £1500 for CAFOD. A letter of thanks from CAFOD is on the noticeboard.
CONFIRMATION will be celebrated this year at St Teresa’s, Wilmslow on 23 June. If there are any young people in Year 8 upwards who would like to be confirmed this year please hand your name and contact details to Fr David. The programme of preparation will begin after Easter.
NEW OFFERTORY ENVELOPES: These are available in the porch for those who use them. Please take your box.
EASTER OFFERING: The offering on Easter Sunday is your traditional Easter Offering to Fr David. For those who give by standing order this does not form part of the offering to Fr David. Special Envelopes are available in the porch which you may wish to use for your Easter Offering. Anyone giving by cheque should still make cheques payable to St Vincent’s Parish and this will eventually find its way to Fr David.
