Peter's Pence: 

The Annual Diocesan collection in aid of Peter’s Pence will be taken up at all Masses next weekend (October 3rd/4th) as a joint  collection. We would ask you to place your offering in the Collection Boxes inside the door of the Church. This collection supports the ministry of the Pope in his task of uniting the many different strands of the church and enables the many charitable initiatives promoted by the Holy Father
