Rite of the Presentation of Our Father for P4 Children
Today at the 9am Mass we welcome the children of P4, who are preparing for their First Holy Communion this year, with their parents and families. Please keep them in your prayers as they prepare for this important event in their spiritual lives.
With the start of a new tax year in less than a fortnight, I am pleased to tell you that for those of you already registered for the weekly gift aid envelopes, your new sets for the 2019/20 tax year are now available for collection from the back of the Cathedral after mass. If you are a UK taxpayer and have not already signed up for gift aid in the parish, now is a very opportune moment to do so! Gift aid is a government initiative whereby amounts you donate to the Cathedral can be uplifted by a further 25% at no additional cost to you. So, if you give £10 today and gift aid your donation, the Cathedral will receive £12.50, ie: £10 from you, plus an additional £2.50 from the Government. Gift aid registration forms will be available after mass today for you to complete and return. To help us keep a record of your donations, you can either request a set of weekly donation envelopes to use in the offertory collections, or, you could set up a standing order with the Cathedral. Over the next two weeks, we will have registration forms, new envelope sets and standing order sign-up sheets available after mass. So if you haven’t already done so, why don’t you sign up today?
