17 November 2019
November – month for the Holy Souls. Our parish Book Of Remembrance will be on display in the church for the month of November. You may wish to make a special effort to visit St Margaret’s during this month for a quiet prayer and to look through our book.
Lilian Weir RIP. It is with great sadness that I announce the death of Lilian, formerly of Cairnbaan on Sunday 10th November. Lilian’s funeral will take place at 12pm on Monday (18th November) at the Lorne and Lowland parish church in Campbeltown. We pray for Lilian and her family at this time.
Gift Aid. Our parish Gift Aid return for the 2018 / 19 tax year is £8,116.80 which is an outstanding amount and shows how valuable Gift Aid is for our parish. Sincere thanks for your continued generosity.
Our Parish Winter Fayre takes place next Saturday 11am – 2pm. There are boxes for donations at the back of the church and you can also hand any donations into the chapel house. I hope you can make it along for a day of fundraising and socialising as a parish community. Please note – mass will be celebrated on Saturday at 9am.
During the fayre the church will be open and I’d invite you to take a moment to pop in and light a candle for private intentions. It is hoped that we will get as many candles lit in the church as possible so please urge all on the day to take a moment to do this.
Church Readers. There will be a short meeting for our readers on Tuesday 26th November at 7pm in St Margaret’s for St Margaret’s readers and in All Saints after mass on Sunday 1st December for Inveraray readers.
This week is Prisoners Week (17th – 24th November). This year’s theme challenges us to get to know more about the lives of people in prison. More information available at: www.prisonersweek.org.uk
Education Sunday Next Sunday is Education Sunday, marking the start of a week when we celebrate the importance of educating children and young people in faith. During Catholic Education Week we are asked to reflect on how we are “Promoting Gospel Values” in our homes, schools and parishes.
MO-MA/Simon Community/Apostleship of the Sea are all in need of donations – toiletries, household cleaning materials, washing-up liquid/powder, tea towels, warm clothing, woolly hats, gloves, sleeping bags.
