We are planning the Mass of Enrolment for next Sunday, January 26th at 10.00 a.m. There are about 10 families in this years’ group and the children will process onto the Sanctuary at the beginning of Mass and briefly introduce themselves to us.  There will be a parents’ prayer and a congregation promise to support the children and their families after the Gospel.  Thank you all for your openness and warmth year by year to this important group within our parish.  They will be joining us for most Sundays between now and May 17th and I know you will make them feel welcome.
CHRISTIAN UNITY WEEK 2020  Begins Saturday, January 18th-25th.  It has been prepared this year by the Christian Churches of Malta and Gozo.  The theme is “Unusual Kindness” and it connects with the welcome St Paul received from the people of Malta who did not yet know Christ when he was shipwrecked...  We need “unusual kindness” today whenever we share faith with people of a different language, culture or faith. 
NEW 100 CLUB  The January draw will take place next Saturday, January 25th after 6 pm Mass.  Prizes - £100; £25; £20.  Thanks to all who have joined.  If you pay monthly please return an envelope with your name and £4.  If you have joined but not yet paid please sign a Standing Order or Cheque for £48 to St Anne’s R C Parish, Buxton and return it next weekend. 
Last weekend, the Sunday Club enjoyed live music from Willy and the Poor Boys, with plenty of opportunities for audience participation (singing along, dancing, demonstrating unsuspected instrumental talents...).  Many thanks to the helpers on the day, to Bruce for finding the band, and also to those who came along to support the event.  The next meeting will be on Sunday 9th February (2 pm-4 pm) when PCSO Sarah Dufton will talk to us about online safety and security.  If you are interested in future meetings, please call Caroline on Buxton 27638 or email
