“”God “desires all men to be saved and to come to the knowledge of the truth”: that is, of Christ Jesus. Christ must be proclaimed to all nations and individuals, so that this revelation may reach to the ends of the earth: God graciously arranged that the things he had once revealed for the salvation of all peoples should remain in their entirety, throughout the ages, and be transmitted to all generations. “Christ the Lord, in whom the entire Revelation of the most high God is summed up, commanded the apostles to preach the Gospel, which had been promised beforehand by the prophets, and which he fulfilled in his own person and promulgated with his own lips. In preaching the Gospel, they were to communicate the gifts of God to all men. This Gospel was to be the source of all saving truth and moral discipline.”” Catechism of the Catholic Church §§74-75

C-MIST – after our regular health & safety inspection there are a few small items to be dealt with, but in general things are safe here.
Gift Aid Envelopes – the new envelopes are at the back of the church – your name is written on the box.
Little Christmas – the Justice and Peace Group would like to invite you, once again, to take part in our Little Christmas Appeal on Sunday 4th December, the Sunday nearest to the feast of St Nicholas, often know as Little Christmas. We invite you once again to ‘clothe the homeless’ with socks, hats, scarves, and gloves. There will be baskets at the back of the church to receive your gifts.
Hour of Prayer for Peace – as we enter into the season of Advent and prepare to welcome the Prince of Peace, the Justice and Peace Group invites you to join them in an hour of prayer for peace. Given the daily news reports of war, killing, violence and persecution in Syria, Iraq, Palestine, Sudan, Pakistan and so many more countries we invite the parish to come together and pray together for peace in our world. The hour of prayer will take place on Wednesday 7th December at 7.30pm. Please bring along any friends who would like to join us in praying for peace.
Parish Christmas Meal – takes place on Tuesday 27th December. Tickets are £10 each: sign up at back of church.

Rosary Group – next meets in the church this Thursday, 8th December, at 7pm, followed by tea in the hall. This is also the day for paying Lourdes 2017 deposits.
Advent Day of Confessions – takes place in the Cathedral on 20th December from 7.30am til 5.30pm. This is a wonderful chance to get to Confession before Christmas. There are still the usual opportunities before Mass in the parish and other services in the deanery will be advertised in the weeks ahead.
Our Lady of Peace Christmas Fair – Monday 5th December from 3.30pm to 5.30pm (including a church stall).
Christmas Greeting Tree – the Justice & Peace Group invites you please consider using the Justice and Peace Christmas Greeting Tree to send Christmas greetings to your fellow parishioners. As well as reducing your carbon footprint, thereby helping our sister, Mother Earth, you can also save yourself time and money. Any donations you wish to leave will go to Mary’s Meals.
Advent Reflections – the Justice and Peace Group has left some ALTERnativity reflections for anyone who would like one. There is a short reflection for each day of December until Christmas day. (Sorry they are late!) ALTERnativity aims to help us remember a Christmas which rediscovers the joy, resists consumerism and remembers the story.
Mary’s Meals Rags to Riches – once again Mary’s Meals is providing us with the opportunity for a pre- Christmas clear out! The van will visit the parish on Sunday December 4th to uplift any of our unwanted textiles.
Introit (sung at the beginning of 11am Mass)

“God will come to save all nations, now prepare let justice flourish, come Lord Jesus come in glory, come Lord Jesus”
