THE GRAAN WEEKLY BULLETIN

2nd April 2017

 

Collection: You were most generous last Sunday. The collection came to £2200.   Thank you so much. That combined with last Sunday’s surplus is used to help defray the many costs of the Novena of Hope. God reward your generosity.   There will be a Development Collection taken up next Sunday 9th April.

 

Easter Mass Bouquets: We have a wide selection of Easter Mass Bouquets which cost £2 / €2.50 each. Enrolling your family and friends on our daily Mass Guild makes a special Easter gift. We also have a new selection of cards for Deceased cards, Mass Bouquet, Get Well, Birthday, With Thanks and Exam cards too.

Novena Thanks: A sincere word of thanks to everyone who attended the Novena and to all our speakers. It was a blessed and special time for all of us. Every night of the Novena had something special to offer. The speakers inspired us with their challenging talks. Thanks to all our musicians and singers too. We particularly want to thank all those who attended and who made such an essential contribution to the Novena. The Church will be in good hands when you eventually play a central role. There are so many good people willing and able to make a contribution with many and varied gifts. May God bless and sustain you all.

Our thanks Declan Coyle to Canon Ian Ellis and his wife Heather and to Rev Cecil Pringle and his wife Hilary for an unforgettable closing day. Your contribution was much appreciated.
