PLANNED GIVING ENVELOPES: Please collect these from the table in the Repository, they are arranged alphabetically. A Parishioner who has signed the GDPR Confidentiality Agreement will be there to help you. The boxes begin this weekend. If your box is not there, or if there is a box with your name on which you no longer use, or if you would like to begin using envelopes, please let Father Neil Know. N.B. It is essential, for our record keeping, that if you take envelopes you use them. If you pay U.K. Income Tax and do not as yet Gift Aid your contributions, please consider doing so, as in addition to the benefits for the Parish there may be tax-benefits for you too. Please take one of the Planned Giving Leaflets from the Church Porch fill it out and return it to Father Neil. EXISTING GIFT AID PARISHIONERS: If you have signed a Gift Aid Declaration in the past in favour of the Westminster Roman Catholic Diocese Trustee (WRCDT), but no longer pay U.K. Income Tax, you need to formally cancel your Gift Aid Declaration. You should also notify any change of address and death. Please remember that under Gift Aid you only need to pay sufficient tax to cover any refund that the Parish would claim on your donations. In the light of this if you need to cancel your Gift Aid Declaration please take and fill out one of the forms available from the table at the back of the Church and hand it to Father Neil.

NEXT WEEKEND is Good Shepherd Sunday, the day we pray for priests and for vocations to the priesthood. The annual collection for the Priest Training Fund will take place. This fund pays for the priestly formation of men for the Catholic priesthood, and also supports the ongoing enrichment and formation of priests. Your generous donation helps ensure we can support these men who are called to be like Christ the Good Shepherd. Donation leaflets are available from the table in the Porch. Please take one home, and read the information. Please only return the envelope next weekend if you have used it to Gift Aid your donation; otherwise please place your donation loose in the baskets. Please continue to pray for vocations and for our priests. You can donate online anytime at www.rcdow.org.uk/donations
