Fr Richard has received correspondence from Walsingham regarding the Memorial Service for Fr Roger Davidson on Tuesday 3rd October at 12 noon. They do need to be aware of how many people will be attending from Higham Ferrers. There is a list of the back of the Church and it would be appreciated if you could put your name down if you are certain you will be attending. The numbers will then be forwarded to Walsingham by the end of August.

You are reminded that there is a Prayer Request Board by the Madonna and Child at the front of the church, with a pen and slip of paper for the use of anyone who would like to use it. The prayers on the board are offered at the altar at the Masses during the week. They do not require a signature, and you can take the opportunity to light a candle if you wish - or not.

Parking in the Church Yard is for disabled badge holders only. The entrance to
the Church must be kept clear in case the emergency services need access.

Coffee Morning every Thursday, 10 am to 12 noon, in the Bede House.
