PARISH PASTORAL COUNCIL HOPES FOR OUTREACH AND FINANCE
You said “We would like to see more Outreach, but we should have realistic expectations;  We should make a rota offering lifts to Mass for people who need transport;  Thanks to those who already bring others to Mass.  Quarterly Finance Reports; Financial Snapshots in the Newsletter and notices at the back of the Church”. 
The questions we should ask of all these hopes are – who is going to do them?  Do we have parishioners here, now, who will take responsibility for them?  Are we expecting Fr Gerry to initiate them all?  Who will come forward to take these initiatives along with the Parish Pastoral Council?
 
VISIT TO THE BUXTON FOODBANK  - HOW TO BECOME EMPLOYABLE 
During our recent visit we found out that our Foodbank had distributed 1,267 seven day food parcels in the last year.  That’s just over 25 parcels each week.  The real thrust of the organisation is trying to give its users the confidence and skills to get back into part-time or voluntary work.  They have been very successful in this and over the past 3 years 50 people have been helped back into at least part-time work.  This part of the organisation is called “Zinc Employability” and has a number of coaches and mentors.  Paul, the Director, can be contacted on 01298 214926 or paul@zink.ork.uk Would you like me to invite him to come to Mass one weekend in the Autumn to talk to us about it all?
 
PARISH CENTRE GRANT  For £25,000 – for the Parish Centre insulation of the main hall and the Nagle rooms upstairs;  for the redecoration of the Hall; the replacement of spent Velux windows and external and kitchen door; and the zoning of the heating into 4 different areas.  This has been awarded by the Police Commissioner for Crime Prevention and Community Development.  We have also obtained £900 from Derby University for wi-fi access for the whole building.  Our thanks to Bruce Thomson who obtained the grants and to Ian Deaville who is overseeing the work.  It will start next week.  
 
FATHER GERRY ON HOLIDAY  for 3 weeks from 24th July. 
While I am away Fr Anthony Dolan, a retired Diocesan Priest living in Nottingham will be here with you for Mass at the weekends.  He came last summer too and I know that you will welcome him warmly.  Margaret Swift will be in the Parish Office on Monday and Thursday afternoons and will pick up any email or phone messages.
 
PRESENTATION ASSOCIATES 
The next meeting of the Associates will be on Wednesday , 25th July at 10.30a.m. – 12 noon in the Parish Centre.  New members very welcome.
