The Rainbows, Brownies & Guides

are holding their Christmas Fair
 on Saturday 10th November.


As it less than a month away, they are
now collecting items and would welcome:
any unwanted gifts, toiletries, jewellery,
 CDs, DVDs, books, bottles, chocolate,
 raffle prizes and bric-a-brac.

They are not able to accept electrical items
 or furniture.

There will be a box in the porch
 for your donations.

Thank you.




Fr. George

returns to Rome this week.

I thank him for his support this Summer.

His presence has been a big help in what
was once a parish with three priests.





A LARGER PRINT NEWSLETTER IS AVAILABLE
IN THE PORCH
and also if you click here



RECONCILIATION

Saturday 12 noon; 5.30pm - 6.00pm.
BAPTISMS
4th Sunday of the month - Contact Fr. Kevan.
MARRIAGES
The Diocese requests couples to give
Fr. Kevan at least 6 months notice,
especially if they intend to be married
outside the Parish.
REFRESHMENTS:
All are welcome in the Centre after the 9.30am Sunday & 10am Thursday Mass.



Thank you for your offering last week
for the upkeep of the Church
of which 58% was Gift Aided.

You may not know but as long as your
offering goes through the Gift Aid envelope
system the income tax you have already paid on that money is transferred to our Church.

The system is very straight forward so
speak to Father Kevan for the details.



CAFOD Family Fast Day Collection
Today


Cafod in Uganda
On a Family Fast Day, CAFOD invites us
to share in the abundance
that God has given us.

We are asked to fast, pray and give
to help people like Longora, who lives
in a remote village in Uganda.

The area is so hot and dry, people used to struggle to get enough clean water to survive.

Thanks to the generosity of parishioners in England and Wales, CAFOD has made sure Longora and her neighbours now have a reliable supply of clean, safe water.

On Family Fast Day, CAFOD invites us to eat
 simply – perhaps having a bowl of soup instead of a meal – and give the money we save to help people like Longora.

Please collect your Fast Day envelope
from the church porch this week
and give what you can.



Next Sunday is World Mission Sunday

Next Sunday, the Holy Father
 invites all Catholics to contribute
to a special collection for Missio,
his official charity for overseas mission.

Your support on World Mission Sunday will help brave missionaries in building a future of hope both in Ethiopia and around the world.

Please join in this special day
that unites Catholics all over the world
in prayer, celebration and
care for our mission of the Church.

You will be able to Gift Aid all donations by using envelopes provided by Missio
which are available in the Church porch.

Thank you



Missio Red Mission Boxes

If you have a Red Mission Box at home
now is the time to return them to
the Church so that they can be emptied.

Please leave your boxes on the table
in the Sacristy and collect your box
about three weeks later.

Thank you.

Please vote against Abortion Bill

The bill seeks to decriminalise abortion which would remove any effective legal protection for unborn babies and their mothers in England, Wales and Northern Ireland.

The Society for the Protection of the Unborn Children has produced postcards, which are available in the Church porch, so that you can send a message to your MP urging them to vote against this dangerous bill which is coming up in the House of Commons
on Tuesday 23 October 2018.



Indonesia Tsunami Appeal

Table Top Sale

A very big thank you to all the parishioners
who supported our sale.

The money raised for the Tadworth
Children’s Trust and the unsold items
 will be donated to the Trust.

The books went to the Girl Guides Sale.

A cheque will be presented to them
at our meeting in May when their representative will be giving a talk




November Masses

All who wish to have their deceased relatives and friends included in the Masses
of the Holy Souls to be offered at St. Matthias during the month of November are invited to submit a written or printed list of names.

Special envelopes are provided
in the Church Porch.

Donations (including your Gift Aid number) towards these Masses are appreciated but not essential, so please feel free to submit a list with or without a donation.

Please let me have your list ASAP, and remember that the list, as you have written or printed it and any photos will be placed
in the November Book of the Dead.
