Your prayers Please pray for those who are celebrating significant anniversaries at this time of year and those who are sick:  Agnes McGuirk, Kevin Nolan, Daniel Dobbs, Margaret Hawes, Maurice Cranney, Ron and Anja Welsh-Smyth, Connor O’Mahoney, Miles Fenton, Michael Skerrett, Joan Smith, Fr Frank Rice and Michaela Pearce.

Holy Name Readers  There is a new readers rota. Copies are available in the porch. Thank you for your continuing participation.  

************************************

Planned Giving Envelopes      New boxes of planned giving envelopes, to be used from Sunday 7 th April, are now available to collect.  Spare boxes are also available if you have not used planned giving envelopes before and would like to do so.  If you take a set of envelopes to use for the first time, please let Karen Shan (Holy Name) or Mike Russell (St Peter’s) know the envelope number you are using.  Karen can be contacted on 512 3066 and Mike can be contacted on 652 9855.  Thank you.  
Apologies to those of you at Holy Name who have used planned giving envelopes during the current financial year but could not find your new box of envelopes with your name on.  Unfortunately, a mix up at head office meant the boxes had the wrong labels put on them.  This has now been corrected, so please could you collect your new box of envelopes as you leave Mass.  If you have already taken one of the boxes of planned giving envelopes which had no name on in the last few weeks (because you could not find your name on a box), please could you return it next weekend – just leave it in the Porch.  Thank you.

Attention all Gift Aid Donors
 With the ending of the tax year on 5 th April the Parish will begin the process of claiming back Gift Aid refunds on donations made in the year.  If your circumstances have changed and you no longer pay income tax (or if for any other reason you do not wish to remain in the Gift Aid Scheme) please let Fr know or contact Karen Shan (512 3066) or Mike Russell (652 9855) by 5 th April, otherwise it will be assumed you have paid sufficient income tax for the Parish to reclaim Gift Aid  donations made. Also, if you are in the Gift Aid scheme and have moved house in the last year, please let Fr know or contact Karen or Mike.
