If you are, St. Peter’s would like to warmly welcome you — please make yourself known to a member of the clergy. If you are a taxpayer and would like to help the parish by joining the Gift Aid scheme, please have a word with Deacon Michael.
HOLY HOUR REMINDER
Every Saturday morning at 10.30am (after Mass and before the Rosary) we have a Holy Hour when we pray for Vocations - we are especially thinking of the Lancaster Diocese. Confessions are heard during Holy Hour.
benediction and stations of the cross
Throughout Lent, there will be Stations of the Cross & Benediction on Sundays in church at 4pm.
Copies of Lent Extra have arrived at St Peter's, available at the back of Church on Sunday or from the Sacristy during the week for £1. It contains daily reflections and plenty of inspiration! "So I am going to take her into the desert again; there I will win her back with words of love" Hosea 2:14.
CAFOD FAMILY FAST DAY - FRIDAY 15TH MARCH
Following last Sunday's Appeal, St Peter's CAFOD team will be pleased to collect your donation envelopes after Mass - if you didn't receive an envelope last Sunday, there are spares. Many thanks.
FIRST HOLY COMMUNION 2019
The next session for children preparing for First Holy Communion will be on Wednesday 20th March in St Peter's Church Hall at 6.00-7.00pm.
CWL COFFEE MORNING - SUNDAY 17TH MARCH - 11.30AM
CATHOLIC WOMEN'S LEAGUE: The CWL will be holding a coffee morning on Sunday 17th March, in the hall after the 10.30am Mass. There will be refreshments, cakes, raffle, bric-a-brac, sale of 2018 Christmas cards and other items. EVERYONE MOST WELCOME.
OUR OVERSEAS MISSION IN PERU UPDATE
Well! it's that time of year again and on Ash Wednesday our St Peter's School started their Lenten Project of collecting 20p pieces in empty Smarties tubes to send to our Overseas Mission in PERU that looks after up to 100 Grannies and Grand-Dads who are destitute and have nothing. Last year the school collected £860 in 6 weeks, so good luck to them this year. It would be brilliant if you can help too - if you haven't got anybody at school or you don't like Smarties you can still help them by putting 20p pieces in things like Steradent tubes, vitamin tablet tubes, jam jars, sweetie jars, plastic bags, paper bags, any container and hand them into church. Now, that would be Mission. Cheers!
LYCH-GATE NOTICE BOARD
It is bound to happen now and again that Mass times change following the printing of the newsletter. Each Saturday a typed list of all the services during the coming week is placed on the lych-gate notice board and it will be updated should any changes occur.

The weekly newsletter is available each week on the Parish website, a link to the website is also available on the Parish Facebook page and on the Twitter feed. There is also the option to have the newsletter emailed straight to your inbox each week, usually a Saturday morning. If you would like to receive the newsletter electronically, please email Sue at the parish email address at firstname.lastname@example.org No information will be shared or used for any other purpose
