CATHOLIC BASICS

is an engaging introduction to the Catholic faith in four parts: God, The Church, The Moral Life, Prayer. The course texts are to be used in conjunction with teaching days and contain the topic notes and opportunities for follow-up study. It has two levels: Basics and Basics Plus. No qualifications needed! The first module will be launched on 31st Jan 19 at NORES Luton from 10am-3pm. A full lunch will be provided as well as a course pack. The cost has been kept down to £25 per person (£10 for unwaged). We hope this price will encourage those who feel the course could be of benefit to attend and participate. A poster is on the notice board in the church.

 THE DIOCESE

is putting on a training course for small- group leaders from 25th-17th Jan at Kings Park Centre, Northampton. If you are interested, further details can be found on the flyer in the porch.

CHURCH CLEANERS

More volunteers needed for this vital job, in order to have a clean church for Christmas and into the New Year. Please give your name to Di if you can help out on the rota. Would all current people on the list please advise if they are willing to continue:

Raphaelle, Monika S, Monika W, Ewa B, Sylvia K, Anna Z, Iwona W, Kate K, Supun.

We like to have teams of at least three, so the more volunteers we have, the less often each team needs to clean. Many thanks.

TOGETHER IN FAITH

It is eight years since commencing the above campaign and all but a few pledges have now been completed. The Diocese has raised over £9million as at July 2018. Some donors have also very kindly continued to donate to their choice of fund/s. We have now come to the end of the original campaign and so there will no longer be general TIF-related mailings. On behalf of the Diocese, we extend sincere gratitude for your personal contribution to the campaign. Should you have any questions concerning the information being held about you, please email tifadmin@northamptondiocese.com or call 01604 714840.

400 CLUB

Please consider joining the 400 Club to be in with a chance of winning some cash! Joy & friends are in the hall after the 10.30am Mass. If you attend 5pm Mass, no problem, – just speak to Fr James. Cost 25p per number per week.

PARISH FACEBOOK GROUP

If you use Facebook, please join our parish Facebook group: Our Lady of Charity & St Augustine Daventry, a good way to catch up on parish activities.
