SECOND COLLECTION TODAY AT ALL MASSES FOR CAFOD. On Cafod Fast Day, 5th October we invited you 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, that 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 water. 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. Please collect your Fast Day envelope from the church this week and give what you can.

Kevin will be offering Certificates of Catholic Practice on Thursday 18th October from 3.30pm-6pm in the Presbytery to parents of children who are presently in Year 6 and want their child in Catholic Secondary school from Sept 2019.

WHERE DID I COME FROM? ‘Where did I come from?’ the young son asked his father, while in the course of writing an essay. ‘Santa Claus brought you,’ says the father, who did not believe that all questions really have to be answered. ‘And where did you come from?’ ‘Oh, the stork brought me,’ was his father’s answer. ‘And Grandad, where did he come from?’ The father held his ground firmly and replied, ‘He was found under a head of cabbage.’ The young lad returned to his writing and after a while he closed the copy and went to his bed. The father was puzzled by the suddenness and persistence of the questions, so he checked the boy’s copy, where he read, ‘After persistent questioning, it is my firm conclusion that there has not been a normal birth in this family for three generations’. – Author unknown.
