Spare Winter Woollies - I am doing a collection of winter woollies to go into back packs as part of a local initiative to support homeless people in Bristol (helpbristolshomeless.org). They need hats, scarves, gloves & thermals for men and women. They do not have to be new, just in good condition. If you would like to donate please bring them to Mass today (Sunday 8th December) so that I can deliver them on the 14th. Many Thanks. (Jacky)

New Hall News: This week, further Parishioners' donations have increased the total to £26,280. In addition, we have received a legacy of £2,500 from the late Mary Mott. This has been added to the fund, bringing the grand total to £28,780. Mary was a much loved member of our Parish community, as were her parents. Please remember them all in your prayers. With the new hall plans we are no longer taking any book donations. Many thanks(Bob)

ALMA REDEMPTORIS MATER - From Saturday before the first Sunday of Advent (30th November) until 1st February 2020.

Loving Mother of the Redeemer,
door to heaven and star of the sea,
come to the aid of thy people,
fallen indeed, but striving to rise;
while the whole of nature marvelled,
thou didst give birth, to thy own holy Creator.
Virgin from the beginning to the end,
thou heardest from the mouth of Gabriel that greeting:
‘Hail’, Oh, take pity on us sinners!
