Sunday Collection: The Collection last Sunday came to £1445.   As always we appreciate very much your kindness to us here at The Graan.    There will be a Development Collection taken up after Communion today.                                      Today is the 26th Sunday of the Year.


Friday 2nd is the first Friday of the month. Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament from 10am – 5pm.


Harvest Thanksgiving this year will be on next weekend. I’ll know you’ll be as generous as you always have been and bring in plenty of fruits of the earth for display in our church. They will be given to the poor.You may bring in non-perishables anytime. We will donate all food to the St Vincent de Paul to distribute to the poor of the area on Sunday evening the 4th. This year the collection will go towards helping the Refugee crisis in Europe. We will forward our contribution to one of the Helping Agencies. It will be a good opportunity to make a generous contribution in this humanitarian crisis.
