The Most Rev. Peter Smith, Archbishop of Southwark: Do you support Catholic schools and the right of Catholics to send their children to them? Then we need you to make your voice heard. The Government is making a critical decision on whether to overturn the admissions cap which prevents Catholic schools from allowing all Catholic pupils to attend. They have acknowledged that this policy discriminates against Catholics and promised to abandon it, now we need you to tell them not to make a U-turn on their promise to Catholics.

Visit http://catholicnews.org.uk or search for Catholic Education in your search engine to write to the government urging them to drop  their policy which bans new Catholic schools.

Mass Offerings: We have a number of spaces available. A mass is the highest gift to parents, family and friends both living and deceased.

The Sick and House Bound: Fr. Henry would be pleased to visit any parishioner who is house bound or sick and needs a visit or Communion. Please do let him know about this.

First Holy Communion Class: Lessons will resume this Sunday 14th January to 4th February after the 10:00 Mass (term time only). Please keep the children, their families and Catechists in your prayers.

Website: Please visit the Parish website for any information you need about the Parish.

Church Hall: We would like to request groups that use the hall on a regular basis to arrange to do cleaning at least twice a month. I know you do tidy up after every function, but that unfortunately is not enough when it is used for a function that involves some catering and refreshments. Thank you.

Sunday 21st January: All parishioners, especially those with Goan connections are welcome to a special mass at 14:00 at St. John Fisher Church, 207 Cannon Hill Lane, SW20 9NQ to pray for the beatification of Ven. Angelo, followed by refreshments in the hall. Do invite friends and come along with a plate of food / drink for general sharing. Contact Rita Aguilar 0208 542 0885 for further details.

Walking Aid: A very kind parishioner is offering a walking aid to someone who needs it. It has a seat plus shopping bag (three in one). If you know someone who needs it please contact Fr. Henry.

White Flower Appeal: The Society for the Protection of the Unborn Children will be making an appeal in support of their work next Sunday. Do please support them if you can. Thank you very much.
