Next week is World Mission Sunday there will be a Special Collection for APF (Association for the Propagation of the Faith).
What is World Mission Sunday?
World Mission Sunday falls on the penultimate Sunday in October. It is the one Sunday in the year when the Mass is celebrated exclusively for missionary activity. Donations are    collected at these worldwide Masses and they go, in their entirety, to support churches, hospitals, schools and vocations in countries where the Church is new, young or poor.
Mission Together – Missio:
We are looking to recruit volunteers for Mission Together the Pope’s official children’s    charity for overseas mission. Volunteers would be required to give presentations to Primary School children. A background in catechesis would be helpful but not essential as full      training will be given. If you are interested or would like further information, please contact the Archdiocesan Director, Deacon Ronnie 0151 476 8533.
Missio - St Cecilias:
October is time to empty your red box again.  We are going to empty it once every four months from now on,  February, June and October.  Calendars will be delivered in December.
Thank you for your very kind donations and may it continue as you will see in the magazine that they are truly needed in other countries.  Thank you once again from Pat Ruddock, Treasurer and secretary for Tuebrook.

Just a reminder, that this year once again we will be taking part in the "Link to Hope" Shoebox Appeal. All relevant information you require, is available at the back of church.

If you can gift aid your donation, please remember to    complete the relevant section on your leaflet.
ALL BOXES MUST BE RETURNED TO ST MATTHEW'S CHURCH, FROM WHERE THEY WILL BE COLLECTED ON FRIDAY 10 NOVEMBER. (*)

Thank you - White Flower Appeal - Society for the Protection of Unborn Children:
Excerpt form a letter from SPUC.
I am truly grateful to you and your parishioners for your very generous contribution of £163.00 to SPUC’s work. Your support is invaluable at a time when we are marking the 50th anniversary of the Abortion Act. Over the past half-century, the 1967 Act has claimed the lives of over 8.7 million unborn children and caused untold suffering to countless mothers. SPUC will be commemorating all the victims of abortion throughout 2017. Antonia Tully, Director of Fundraising and Campaigns, SPUC.

Volunteer as a Debt Adviser:
As part of Community Money Advice, St. Andrew’s Community Network has been running a Debt Advice Centre since 2005. We now have 7 Satellite Centres across the region and approximately 600clients; we are managing 4.7 million pounds worth of debt and could not do this without volunteers. Running a Debt Centre is a considerable commitment which requires volunteers and resources that are not available to all organizations. This is an opportunity to volunteer for a challenging and rewarding experience. For further information please contact St. Andrew’s Community Network, Clubmoor Community Centre, 16-18 Larkhill Lane, L13 9BR, telephone number 0151 226 3406 or email standrewslive.org.uk

Cathedral Golden Jubilee Celebrations:
Requiem – Mozart - 15th November:   Start 7.00pm Tickets: £20 / £10 available from The Cathedral Gift Shop or www.ticketsource.co.uk/lpoolmetmusic
Joining together in concert for the first time ever, the choirs of Westminster Cathedral and Liverpool Metropolitan Cathedral perform Mozart’s sublime Requiem.  Composed in 1791, but unfinished at his death, Mozart’s Requiem has captured the imagination of audiences worldwide since its first performance in 1793. Much of the intrigue surrounding the work is centred on exactly how much of the Requiem Mozart himself composed, and how much was completed by his students.
