BAPTISM PREPARATION
For any parents in the Parish wishing to baptise their child in the coming months, we ask you to attend one of our monthly baptism meetings.  Please contact the Parish Office on 01372 462451 if you wish to baptise your child and we will let you know the date of the next meeting.

PARISH 'ENGAGE!' GROUPS

JOIN AN "ENGAGE!" GROUP TO DISCUSS!
Who are we as a Church and what are we called to do? Are these questions you sometimes ask yourself? All parishes in our Diocese have formed small home groups to follow a yearly 6-week programme of discussion from 2012-2015, to mark the 50 year anniversary of the Arundel & Brighton Diocese.  The first two seasons have been very positive, interesting and formed great discussions as each member of the small group comes from a different background and have different stories and experiences to share.  This is a time for renewal and an opportunity to help you understand Catholicism or the modern Church.   To find out about a group near you on a day that suits you please contact the Parish Office.

GIFT AID
If you have signed up to the Gift Aid scheme and contribute to the weekly collection via the envelope system, then your new box of envelopes are available for collection.  They will be left in the Church porch before and after a weekend Mass for the next few weeks starting 22 March.  Each box has a number which is personal to the donor, the boxes have also been labelled with your name for your convenience. If you would prefer to have your boxes delivered or pick them up from the Parish Office and pick the up during this week please let the office know and this can be arranged.

If you would like to join the Gift Aid Scheme or learn more about it please contact John Bamford in the Parish Office Mon, Wed, Fri mornings john.bamford@holynameesher.org.uk

APF Red Boxes

Our Parish Supports the APF, the official support organisation for the overseas mission of the Catholic Church which supports every mission diocese in the world.  Many of our Parishioners hold a "Red Box" in their homes where they collect loose change.  These boxes are collected and counted every six months by a team of people from the Parish. To take a Red Box please contact the Parish Office. To find out more about the Mission www.missio.org.uk or www.millhillmissonaries.com
