Please complete your lists for All Souls on the sheets provided in the church foyer and place them in envelopes in the box provided.
Monsignor Basil is currently having the toes on his left foot dressed twice a week and this will continue for some time. He received positive news from his doctor in the Vascular Clinic last week when he was given the ‘all clear’ on his foot. He is now looking to return to Auchterarder with the support of a Social Services care package. Furthermore, he will need medical support from a district nurse after his return, which still needs to be arranged. He is in good spirits and remains positive, but is realistic in knowing that recovery is going to be a long haul. He thanks everyone for their prayers and good wishes.
Donations for Fr Garry and his Liberian Mission in Bomi Hills will be deposited with the SMA Office in Dunblane next week. Anyone wanting to support his work should use the brown envelopes in the church foyer and place them in the collection basket during Mass.
Also, please note Saturday, 18th November in your diary, when there will be a Coffee Morning and Sale in the Aytoun Hall in aid of Our Lady’s Mary’s Meals Kabvunguti School Kitchen Project.
Our Lady of Perpetual Succour, pray for us, watch over us and take care of us, especially our cherished loved ones.
