Paul’s Place Money-Wall:
Rather than buy Christmas Cards and/or gifts this year, why not consider donating to charity instead? It’s really simple and straightforward to take part. You decide on the amount of money you would have spent on buying cards and/or gifts (between £1 and £100) and put that amount in the same numbered envelope (which are available at the back of church) e.g if you choose to donate £20, then put your money in envelope 20; or if you’re donating £50, put your money in envelope 50. 
You may even want to split the amount you’re donating with family members, friends or workmates. Thank you for your continued support and generosity.

Take part in the Synod!
In order for the Synod to hear as many voices from across the Archdiocese as possible, each parish has been asked to nominate a parishioner to be a Synod member. This is a fantastic opportunity to take part in something unique and special. It will not be a demanding task and there are only a few meetings to attend over the next two years. The important thing is to be able to listen to what people in the parish are saying about the Church and to bring that on their behalf to the Synod. If you would like to be involved please speak to either Fr Conor or Fr Dominic after Mass.  More information can be found on the Synod website: www.synod202.co.uk

CYMFed (Catholic Youth Ministry Federation) National Catholic Award Scheme:
This award scheme is for young people in Year 6 to Year 13 and can be broken down into 4 different levels – Pin, Bronze, Silver and Gold.
The award is designed to reward the good work young people in our diocese are already doing. The programme rewards active service in schools, parishes and local communities    encouraging participants to take their service into the wider community and accept greater responsibility for putting their faith into action.
The award encourages young people to shine the light of their faith upon their everyday experiences and then reflect on how this shapes and moulds them as young people.
At the end of the year young people receive as award from the Archbishop to thank them for the work they have done.
If you would like to know more there are a small amount of leaflets available at the back of church or please contact Animate Youth Ministries for further information. www.amimateyouth.org email This email address is being protected from spambots.
