A MESSAGE FROM FR IAN
Dear Brothers & Sisters in Christ

Jesus’ baptism was the beginning of his mission among us. We link ourselves to his mission now as we pray.
We praise you, O God, revealed to us as Trinity in the Baptism of your Son. We say together our Trinity prayer of praise, Glory be!

Your Brother in Christ,
Ian


Mass intention envelopes and forms:
they can be found in the porch of our Church – please use these envelopes only for requests for Masses and ensure all details are clearly written and contact details added before giving them to Fr Ian.
 
 

USED SPECTACLES
You may remember Fr David Cullen came to talk to us in June about his work in Zambia.  There is a box just inside the door of the porch for used spectacles that can be sent directly to him.  Please see Ann-Marie if you would like an update on his work.  Many thanks.


The Breakout Centre is seeking volunteers to work in their new Charity Shop in Newhaven Square. Please see details on poster in the outer porch. They will be delighted to see you. This is a vital project to generate some income for the financial support of the work of the Centre – a Newhaven Churches Together project.

 
REPOSITORY:
Christmas cards, nativity sets, children’s books and gifts are now on sale at the back of the church at very reasonable prices. The small amount of profit made goes into the parish.
Just choose what you like and put the moneys in the Repository box/slot on the left side at the wall on the back of the Church or give them to Danni.

 
FOOD BANK:
A collection for the local food bank in Newhaven. Please donate any non perishable items in the box in the porch (on a table opposite prayer/hymn book cabinet).

 
RED MISSION BOXES:
Please return these to church as soon as possible for emptying (annual collection). Thank you for the generous response to the Missio Appeal. We now have a much increased number of boxes. Would new box holders please ensure their box is labelled with their name and address so they can be returned. Thank you

  
CHURCH CLEANING
I am sure you will all have appreciated the beautiful condition of the Church at Easter. The Cleaning team urgently needs volunteers as they are now too few on the ground. If you are able to assist, please give your name to Father or to Tina or Val. Sufficient volunteers would mean about 4 to 6 weeks between duties.   

 
PRAYER BOARD:
a new prayer board has been added to the porch.  All are welcome to add a prayer to this and it will be presented to the altar.  (Please remember to remove prayers once they have been answered to keep it fresh). 
 

ARE YOU THINKING ABOUT BECOMING A CATHOLIC?  
Please feel free to come along to any of our masses and, when you are ready, please contact Fr. Kevin. We regularly run information courses about Catholicism which do not commit you but instead give you the opportunity to find out more about us.

 
GIFT AID:
Please join the scheme - click here for more information. 
Without your continued financial support we would be unable to continue here in Newhaven. If you are a TAXPAYER why not consider being part of GIFT AID and make your donations worth 25% more. There is just one form to complete and no further enquiry is made of your finances. Make your gifts even more worthwhile; see Halden or any member of the committee.
 
 
MASS TRANSLATIONS IN POLISH:
There are translations of the mass text available at the back of the Church for non-English speakers (in Polish). Please e-mail me if you would like one be available in your language.
Tłumaczenia polsko-angielskie mszy świętej są dostępne w przedsionku kościoła.
 
 
OUR LOCAL CATHOLIC PRIMARY SCHOOL:

Annecy in Seaford and it deserves our full support which includes sending our children there. Many generations of Catholics have made sure that this facility still exists.
