CONTINENTAL STAGE OF THE SYNOD: You may have recently heard that the Vatican has produced a document to help us in the next stage of the synod. Pope Francis asks us to continue with the Synodal journey here in the diocese firstly by prayerfully reading the document and then focusing on 3 questions: what resonates for you in the Document of the Continental Stage, what difficulties need to be addressed, and what are the priorities and calls to action? There are a few copies available in the parish or it can be accessed here Having read it you might want to contribute to the diocesan discernment of our response to these questions by joining a meeting on 1 December 7:00-8:30 pm The meeting will be held both in person and virtually. To help with our planning participants will need to book on the Formation and Mission Eventbrite page here And choose if they want to attend virtually or in person.

CHRIST THE KING YOUTH MASS: lead by children from our Catholic Schools

At St Mary's Catholic Church, Herringthorpe Saturday 19th November at 6pm

Refreshments are available after Mass Please do come and support our young people.


Reverse Advent Calendar: With only a month to go before Advent, our 2022 Reverse Advent Calendar continues to focus on the value of giving something to those in need at Christmas, rather than, as with traditional Advent Calendars the focus on receiving.

Last year broke all records with the number of completed calendars and gifts/donations we received. With demand and need already increasing this winter and the food parcels and meals we provide being in higher demand, we are asking for your ongoing support and help.The Reverse Advent Calendar enables our fantastic supporters to collect specific items that will make a real difference to our clients and those we help.

You can start it at any time and don’t have to collect all the items. If you are unable to collect some or all of the things, please feel free to make a small donation instead. A 20p donation covers the cost of a mug of tea or coffee.

Once completed, please drop off your collection, after 4th January. The full-size Reverse Advent Calendar can also be downloaded by clicking on the link on our website.

A Christmas Evening with Friends and Supporters: After the success of our Autumn Fayre and requests for St Wilfrid's Centre Christmas Cards, Nativity Sets and Calendars, we have decided to hold ' A Christmas Evening with Friends and Supporters'. It will take place at the Centre on Wednesday 23rd November 5-7pm. (See attached poster) Please share this with your friends, family and colleagues.

Volunteers: Bev Kershaw, our Volunteer and Events Coordinator, is always on the lookout for new people to join our excellent team of volunteers. Many of our volunteers have contacted us intitally after information has being given out in parishes and we would really like to hear from anyone who thinks they could give up a few hours a week to help. Please share the poster with anyone you think might be interested.

CHILDREN’S LITURGY: We are looking to reinstate the Children’s Liturgy on a Sunday Mass initially for the last Sunday of each month and then depending on numbers to increase in the future. We are desperately seeking help from volunteers to run the sessions and also someone to co-ordinate the group. Pre-covid we had a good number of valued volunteers and would welcome them back and new parishioners to the group. If you would like to join us or want to know more information please contact Alison Bergomi via either email or 07977341619. Safeguarding paperwork is required to be completed before the sessions start so a prompt reply would be appreciated.

COMMUNITY WARM HUBS: Dinnington Council along with Churches and local hubs a have set up warm spaces for people to be able to go to at different times of the week. The aim is to offer a hot drink some refreshment to anyone who needs to keep warm. The scheme is starting on November the 1st. St. Joseph’s are offering Wednesday and Thursday afternoon. We will need some volunteers to help out each week, making tea and coffee and making sure everyone feels welcome. Contact Monica if you are able to help with this worthy and much needed community service.
