Pope Francis' Prayer Intention For July

That priests who experience fatigue and loneliness in their pastoral work may find help and comfort in their intimacy with the Lord and in their friendship with their brother priests.

The 300 Club

Subscriptions now due and we need new members. Draws take place at the end of March, June and October for prizes of £25 and £100 and just before Christmas for prizes of £25 and £250. Completed forms may be handed into the sacristy. 

The 300 Club is an important source of funds for the Parish. The amount raised in the year 2012-13 was £1,156. This was from 157 members. We have additional numbers for new members and we hope that existing members will renew their subscription - which is now due.

Membership for the year is £14.

Providing membership stays at the same level, this means that there will be a monthly first prize of £60 and a second prize of £20. The December draw will be for a £100 first prize. This means that the total prize money will be £1,000. After deducting a small amount for expenses, what is left goes directly to Church funds.

Please contact Fr John or Deacon Bill if you would like an application form. Alternatively, put your cheque and details in an envelope and place it in the collection. Cheques should be made payable to "St John's and St Martin's 300 Club".

As ever, thank you for your loyal support and good luck in the draw.
