Happy Birthday to Fr Conor with love from all your parishioners: (Friday 28th).

Strictly Nugent 2018:
Nugent are excited to launch their third annual dance competition and gala fundraiser, Strictly Nugent 2018, which this year takes place in St George’s Hall on October 27th. Recognising the success of the event that has raised over £90,000 in the last 2 years to help vulnerable children and families living with poverty, this 3rd year aims higher than ever to raise vital funds to support Nugent’s work with vulnerable children and adults. 
This year we have a very special contestant….our very own Fr Conor!  Who will be dancing the Argentine Tango with his dance partner Amanda. 
We wish them both lots of luck as you start your training this week.
If you would like to support Fr Conor you can sponsor him online at Virgin Money Giving: goo.gl/jXRMU
Or sponsor forms are available at the back of church.
Tickets can be purchased through Nugent on 0151 261 2000 priced at £75 which includes reception drinks, three course meal and entertainment.

CAFOD – Family Fast Day - Friday 5th October:
On 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 ater.   On Family Fast Day (Friday 5 October), 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.

The 50/50 Club Members:
The prize money paid out for the draw on Sunday 16th September 2018 was £81.50 and the winning number was 75.
Congratulations to the winner and thanks to all those who support this venture.
If you would like to join the 50/50 Club or would like further information please speak to Agnes, Joan or Pat after weekend Mass in St Matthew’s. St Cecilia’s parishioners can request an information phone call by passing their details to Mary Dillon in the Piety Stall. Remember, you’ve got to be in it to win it!

‘Funny Money’ – Nugent:
You know what happens when you come back from holiday with those spare few euros or dollars in your purse and you think ‘I’ll use them next year’. Well, instead of accumulating a mini coin collection in your top drawer you can donate it to Nugent. Please leave your ‘funny money’ in the relevant box at the back of church. Thank you.
