Newsletter 29th Sunday in Ordinary Time - October 18, 2020 CC
Today is Mission Sunday.
Under normal circumstances, we would have a 2nd collection at the Sunday Masses. If you are in a position to donate, you can donate online www.missioscotland.com or call 01236 449774 or you can text MISSIOSCOT to 70085 to donate £3. Mission Sunday is the one Sunday in the year when Pope Francis asks the whole Church to help mission parishes. This year, Missio Scotland is appealing for help for the people of Llusco, Peru to help build a parish house and to fund a feeding programme for disabled children.
NOVEMBER BOOK OF REMEMBRANCE. We will be displaying our Book of Remembrance throughout the month of November. If any of your loved ones have died since last November, forms will be available in the Church porch from Tuesday onwards. Alternatively I can email you a form which can be completed and emailed back to me. Previous entries of course remain in the book and so there is no need to re-enter these.
BISHOP BRIAN ZOOM TALK Tuesday, 17th November 2020. To coincide with Pope Francis’s new encyclical letter ‘Fratelli Tutti’ about fraternity and social friendship, St Margaret’s will host an online event with Bishop Brian giving a reflection and how this document can impact on our lives. Jill Kent of Pax Christi International will also speak at this event. It promises to be an engaging meeting so if you are interested please register following the link below. The registration link can also be found on our Website and Facebook Page. You are invited to a Zoom meeting. Tuesday, 17 th November 7pm – 8pm. If you don’t have Zoom, you will need to download this prior to registration
MOMA do not require food items at this time but are always looking for soap/toothpaste/tea towels/household cleaning materials. If you can donate any of these items they can be left in the box in the church porch.
Apostleship of the Sea require woolly hats/gloves/socks etc. These can again be left in the porch area of the church.
