14th February 2016


Sunday Collection: Thank you for your continued generosity to The Graan. The collection amounted to £1630.   There will be a Development Collection taken up after Communion today.


Today is the First Sunday of Lent.

It is also the feast of St Valentine. It's a day when we celebrate the gift of love in our lives. We should be grateful for 1) God's love for us 2) our love for one another 3) our love for ourselves.

Here is a prayer on St Valentine's Day: "God of love you give us many people who are examples of love in our lives. As we celebrate the feast of St Valentine, we ask you to bless all those who touch our lives. May the love we share and experience make this world a better place for all."

You don’t have to be an expert to help. Even if you have volunteered before please do register again so that we can plan properly for these special days.

Children: In preparation for the Novena of Hope we invite children through schools, and individually to submit posters with the theme of Hope and Good News. You always do such a superb job.
