The Sick: The Diocese, on advice and under Data Protection Regulations (May 2018), asks us not to name individuals, but to pray for them as a group within the Parish Body as those in particular need. Recently Deceased: Betty Garbutt, Mary Fox. Anniversaries: Vincent Burns
HOME COMMUNIONS If you require Holy Communion at home, please contact Christopher Wilding, Fr Kentigern or Fr Bernard either by e-mail or leave a telephone message by 8.00pm on Friday evening stating whether you require a weekly visit or a one-off call. Someone will then be in contact to arrange a suitable day and time to visit.
LEADERSHIP TEAM As the Summer Holiday period comes to its close, Fr Kentigern wonders if it might be a good time for a Parish Forum to update everyone on various matters. How about Sunday 10 September?

APPEAL I’ve just been contacted by a friend who is making this request to all her friends. She knows a Syrian Refugee couple whose first baby is due. Their accommodation at University will soon be no longer available. However, they do have somewhere to go from January 2024. Their urgent need is for accommodation until January 2024. Can anyone help? Do you know someone who can help? Thank you, Emily Gould (for her friend Patricia.)
