There will be a second collection for Sick & Retired Priests this coming Sunday, 10th September.
The Heart & Soul Swing Band will be performing in the Parish Church at 7.30pm tomorrow (Friday, 8th). Everyone is invited. Entry by donation.
If you are a tax payer, please consider completing a Gift Aid Declaration form, if you haven’t already done so. Gift Aid increases the worth of our church collections by 25%. Forms can be obtained from myself.
Please pray for Margaret Fraser, who is currently in Ninewells Hospital awaiting surgery.
This Sunday we have a Care Home Service commitment at Parkdale commencing at 2.30pm. Parishioners are welcome to come along. Arrive for 2.15pm.
Last Sunday’s collection came to £345.89p: Gift Aid £200; Loose Plate £145.89p. The second collection for the Stained Glass Window Fund came to £697.45p – thanks to all who contributed so generously.
The Bingo Tea on 30 August raised £750 for the Parish Council Fund – again, grateful thanks to all who contributed; organisers, attendees and donators.
£101 has been deposited with Mary’s Meals from small donations made during June, July and August for our Kabvunguti School Kitchen in Malawi. Grateful thanks to all who made donations. This deposit has brought the total sum raised for the project since 2008 to just over £38K. A date for your diaries: on Saturday, 18 November we will be organising a coffee morning in the Aytoun Hall to raise money for Mary’s Meals.
Monsignor Basil continues to recover at his niece’s house in Dundee and he is being encouraged to remain there until fit enough to return home to Auchterarder.
Our Lady of Perpetual Succour, pray for us, our housebound and sick, and especially Monsignor Basil.
