What's New

Joint CAFOD Fast Day - Thank You!

 

A big thank you to everyone that came to support St Anthony’s Church and St Anthony's School Joint CAFOD Day on Friday 16 March. A wonderful Lenten Lunch was had with a variety of delicious soups and breads courtesy of the school staff. Money is still coming in so once these have all been counted we will announce our donation to CAFOD. Pictures of the event can be viewed in our photo gallery.

Weekly Offertory and Financial Giving 

 

We are encouraging parishioners to use numbered envelopes for your weekly offertory, please give your name and address on the form at the back of the Church and we will provide you with a box of envelopes the following week.

 

The best way to give, especially if you are away a lot, is by standing order. To set this up, please pick up a standing order form from the back of the Church and send in the completed form to the Parish office and we will do the rest!

 

If you are a taxpayer, the advantage of using either envelopes or standing order is that we can claim back 25p for every £1 you give from the government. All you need to do is complete a Gift Aid Declaration Form (which is attached to the Standing Order Form, or will be inside your envelope box) and return it to the Parish Office. Thank you. 

 

Coffee Mornings

 

Our Big Coffee Morning takes place every Sunday at 11.30am in the Crypt after Mass. Parishoners gather for tea, toast and plenty of cake! It is a wonderful opportunity to catch up with friends old and new. All are welcome! We also use this oppportunity to collect some much needed donations for the upkeep of our Church. There is a donation tin on the counter and we invite you to give what you can and where possible - generously.

Prayer to St Anthony

 

Saint Anthony, perfect imitator of Jesus, who received from God the special power of restoring lost things, grant that I may find {mention your petition} which has been lost. As least restore to me peace and tranquillity of mind, the loss of which has afflicted me even more than my material loss. To this favour I ask another of you: that I may always remain in possession of the true good that is God. Let me rather lose all things than lose God, my supreme good. Let me never suffer the loss of my greatest treasure, eternal life with God. Amen.
