It begins on Sunday, 30th September at 3.30 p.m. and finishes on Saturday, October 6th at 10 a.m.  It involves meeting a prayer guide (Michael and Carmel O’Malley from Stockport, Celia Birmingham from Lincoln, Sr Treasa from Nottingham) for half an hour on Monday – Friday and doing 20 minutes or so prayer on your own.  Thanks to those people who have already returned their slips.  The deadline is today, Sunday, September 16th. 
 
WHO DO YOU SAY I AM? 
This is the question the Commission for Home Mission are asking us to ponder and respond to this weekend. You will receive one of their cards at Mass today.  There will be a second collection today for the national work of Home Mission in helping Catholics become more confident in sharing their faith.
 
CELEBRATING THE HARVEST  - OCTOBER 6TH AND 7TH 
My thanks to those parishioners who are already beginning to prepare for this.  Could those of you with gardens or allotments think about what fresh produce you might donate that weekend?  We have a wheelbarrow and the large area in front of the altar to fill as well as the porch, and radiator tops around the church.  Otherwise you might think of a tin or packet or bottle of something.  Paul Bohan, from the High Peak Food Bank at Buxton, is coming to talk to us the previous weekend about their work and how we’re already helping them.  The CAFOD Harvest Fast Day takes place on Friday, October 5th.  
 
NEXT SUNDAY
I have invited Mr Brendan Hickey, Headteacher of St Thomas More Academy and Executive Head of St Anne’s Academy to speak to us at the 10 a.m. Mass.
 
THE PRESBYTERY REAR ENTRANCE  will not be accessible during the next month as the builders will be using it as they knock my kitchen and dining room together.  Please use the front door!
 
A DATE FOR YOUR DIARY  - SOCIAL EVENING – SATURDAY, 13TH OCTOBER AT 7.30 P.M.   
Singing and music with members of the High Peak Big Band and a Fish and Chip Supper.  Proceeds to be shared between Cancer Research and St Anne’s Development Fund.  Tickets will be available shortly.
