Giving Tree Phil Dance writes 'The Giving Tree in aid of the Suffolk Refugee Service will be in the Church until the 3rd Sunday of Advent. Please take a look at the labels on the tree, each label represents a gift that we can offer to local refugee families to help them at Christmas. Please take a label and return the gift (unwrapped) to the box beside the tree by the third Sunday of Advent. This will allow sufficient time to get the gifts to those in need. This is a very easy way for our community to reach out to those who have had to flee their homeland as a result of war and persecution. Thanks in advance for your gift.'

Cake Sale in the hall 10.0am-11.30 am.

If you require more jars please collect from the box in the porch. Return jars to the same box but only at weekend Masses. Thank you.'
Last Weekend The visit by the Bishop to bless the two new stained glass windows was a memorable occasion. Thank you to all who took part, and especially to Jenny and Team Felix for the delicious and original refreshments in the Hall afterwards.
Penitential Service before Christmas When the
Deanery Clergy met recently they discussed the usual round of Penitential
Services, and decided that in view of the current shortage of priests it is
unrealistic to try to muster a team of priests for such a Service in each of
the parishes. Instead there will be one Deanery
Penitential Service, at St.Pancras',
IT'S ALMOST POSADA TIME
Once again the
Posada - the figure of Mary and Joseph making their way to
It is important that on the evening when the Posada is with you, you invite a few friends or neighbours into your house, give them a coffee or something, and with them say the simple Posada prayers. An small act of witness & evangelization.
