David Williams MBE completed the 135 mile bike ride to Walsingham
arrive with 2 minutes before the Mass started. He will be at all Masses
this weekend in case people would like to pay their pledges. With donations already made the total is approaching £700.00 for CAFOD. A huge Thank You to all who donated.



Here is a summary of the parish accounts for the last financial year, ending
31st March. The cost of re-ordering the Church was met by the sale of the Long Buckby land. Pie-charts are available in the porch. Our thanks to the Parish Finance Committee for all their work: Ann, Brian, Di, John, Mary, Michael.

The collection is decreasing, and barely meets our usual outgoings. Last year it decreased by 21%. Please consider using the envelopes, and if you pay tax, the Gift Aid scheme will increase your donation by 20%
