ANNUAL SICK CLEGY FUND: Next week end at all the Masses we will have a retiring collection for our Sick and Retired Clergy. Many of the Priests who are retired have spent over 50 years working in the Parishes of the Diocese and this collection is an opportunity for us to say a big thank you to them for their loyalty and hard work. So we ask you to be as generous as you normally are. Please keep your Priests in your prayers.
