We were saddened to learn of the death of Philip Smith after a long, bravely fought battle against cancer.  Our sympathy and prayers go to Cher and her family.  Phil was too ill to take part in the sponsored bike ride on 20th September to raise money for the “Brighter Futures” cause, but members of his family completed the ride on his behalf.  Those who had pledged to sponsor him will continue to donate the money in his memory.

Philip’s funeral will take place on Friday 16th October at 11.00 am at S. Mark’s.

May he rest in peace.



at S. Mark’s today are given to the glory of God and in loving memory of Sylvia Lidgley.



next Sunday, the whole parish gathers at S. Luke’s church for the celebration of S. Luke’s day. 

We are looking forward to welcoming Fr Sam Philpot, who will preach on that day.

The Mass will be rounded off with buffet afterwards in S. Luke’s hall. 

Donations of food would be most welcome for this.  Please contact Lynda Bishop on 526542 to let her know if you will be able to help, or sign the list at the back of church.

Have you coloured in your picture of S. Luke on the back of the magazine?  There will be a prize for the young person who brings the best coloured-in picture.

Please note there will be no mass at S. Mark’s or S. Saviour’s that day.



Following the article in InSpire magazine, we will pray the Rosary on Monday evenings during the rest of October at S. Mark's at 6.30pm, following the Mass. All are welcome to join us for that. If you do not have a set of rosary beads, don't worry - just come along!



The Society, under the Patronage of S. Wilfrid and S. Hilda, has issued a new leaflet concerning the relationship between traditional catholic parishes and the Diocese of the Church of England to which they belong, now that women have been ordained to the Episcopate.

Copies of this leaflet are available in each church today.

As a parish, we will begin the process of considering how best to make use of these arrangements, in the near future.



a cleaning session will be held at S. Mark’s on Thursday 15th October from 1-3pm.  All welcome—many hands make light work!



will meet TOMORROW at 7.00 pm in S. Mark’s Hall.  This month’s guest speaker will be the Bobby Van Trust.

Macmillan Cancer Support would like to thank us for raising £300.69 at our coffee morning, at S. Saviour’s hall on 26th September.

The Parish Coffee morning will be a regular feature, on the 4th Saturday of every month, in S. Saviour’s hall.  Everyone is very welcome to come along, share coffee & cake and help raise funds for charity.  The next Coffee Morning, on 24th October, from 10 am to 12 pm the charity will be the Brighter Futures Radiotherapy Appeal. 

Do come along and share fun, food and fellowship.



Order your Real Advent Calendar now!

As in previous years, the Real Advent Calendar will be available through the Rainbow Bookshop.  Behind each of the 24 windows there is a Fairtrade Belgian chocolate and a few words from the Christmas story.   It also comes with a free 32-page story activity booklet.

The calendars need to be ordered well in advance, so if you would like one (or more) at a cost of £3.99 each, please sign the list at the back of church no later than Sunday 18th October (the list can be signed in any of the churches).
