Remember, Teas and Coffees in the Hall
after Sunday 10am Mass
"During advent we are looking for donations to send to the Sisters of Gospel of Life who support mums and their babies.
The Jesse Tree will be at the back of the Church with gift suggestions on gift tags. Simply take a tag from the Jesse tree and attach it to your wrapped gift or attach your own gift tag saying what’s inside – please indicate sizes where appropriate. Leave your gift under the Jesse Tree or in the labelled box at the back of the church." Thank you.

Giving extra without giving more
How can I make sure that St Joseph & St Patrick’s Parish benefits from Gift Aid? Ask yourself two questions:
• Do you donate to St Joseph & St Patrick’s Parish?
• Do you pay tax?
If you answered “Yes” to the above, then you can “gift aid” your contribution and HMRC will add another 25p for each £1 you donate. So, if you donate £20 per month to the Parish then HMRC will give another £5 to the Parish. It will not cost you any extra!
This is money that you have already paid in tax to the government and HMRC are willing to support charitable causes (such as St Joseph & St Patrick’s Parish) in this way.
All you need to do is complete a Gift Aid declaration available at the back of the church or download by clicking HERE, or speak with Canon Berry or use the email at the bottom of the bulletin.
A collection for the Foodbank will be taken on Saturday 3rd December from 11am to 1pm
They would particularly like tinned fish, tinned meat and pasta sauce. But no pasta please
