PLEASE PRAY FOR Mary Dyer, Gae Kay’s sister, and John Purdy who both died in the Haddon Hall Nursing Home last week, and Sylvia Parker, Anne’s mother-in-law, who died in Glossop. John’s funeral will take place at St. Anne’s on 27th January at 2:00 pm.

Pope Francis’ message for 2022 is called “Education, work and dialogue
between generations – tools for building lasting peace”. This provides a golden opportunity for families, schools and parishes to explore their role in peace-making. See

ST ANNE’S PARISH MEETING This Sunday we shall try to prioritise your suggestions made at the November meeting and begin to explore how we can put these into action in our parish so that we can become more outward-looking and more missionary. Please join us if you can!

At next Sunday’s 10:00 am mass in St Anne’s, we have 21 families joining us, so we will be fuller than usual! Please make them all welcome. We will have a parent’s meeting this Thursday at 7:00 pm in the Community Centre to prepare for the mass.


I was surprised to hear from Graham Todd last weekend that up to 45% of pregnancies in the UK are ‘unplanned’. Thank you all for supporting this much needed local churches initiative. We contributed £146.00 at Chapel en le Frith and £160.00 at Buxton. Maybe we should think about continuing our support for them in the future? Did you subscribe to their bi-monthly email newsletter? It is available through their website:

BUXTON 100 CLUB RENEWALS are now due. Over the past 2 years, we have generated £2980.00 which we will use this year to improve our ‘back-of-house’ areas by refurbishing and redecorating the toilet beyond the sacristy, the flower room, and the reconciliation room (confessional). There are still quite a few outstanding subscriptions so please make your payments as soon as possible.  If people do not renew their subscriptions, and membership decreases, we will need to reduce the prizes awarded at the end of each month. Any unpaid numbers will be removed before the next draw. Information and standing order forms are available at the back of the church. Please see Fabio, Margaret or Fr Gerry.

SECOND COLLECTION next weekend for the Sick and Retired Priests Fund.


Thank you all for being so careful at church in both Buxton and Chapel. We all sanitise before and after mass, wear face coverings, and are careful about keeping a social distance. We are also keeping the doors of both churches open for ventilation, despite the cold!

“We send our sincere thanks for the many messages, cards and Mass Cards you have sent us and of course for the prayers of the Parish.  Thank you too for the donations which will be given to Blythe Hospicecare.  We thank all those who gathered outside the church for the funeral and also those who watched the Livestream.  Mam was very close to the Church and gained great strength and comfort from her worship and from the friends she formed over almost 60 years in Chapel. (Pat’s ashes will be buried beside Leo, her husband, at Rosses Point in Ireland.)

Flower Festival

Flower Festival Auction of Promises
Grand Total raised for the Flower Festival £1,812.37
Many thanks to everyone who helped, particularly to Mike who acted as Auctioneer with great humour and skill and some wonderful individual bids undoubtedly came as a result of his gentle cajoling. Thanks also to Bruce who dealt with the bids, to Angela and Aileen for doing the refreshments, to Rob for all the printing and to Fr Dennis for all the advance publicity.  Last but not least, thanks to everyone who kindly donated an item to auction or who bid for one or more of the lots.
We shall have a truly wonderful Flower Festival. We shall display a full list of the lots, donors & money raised at the back of the church from this evening.
Best wishes, Margaret Robinson
