We’ll have Champagne and cake after Saturday mass at Chapel and the Hog Roast and Champagne after 11:00 am mass on Sunday at Buxton. I’m looking forward to seeing you there! Thanks to all who have let us know the numbers coming on Sunday; we have now finalised the numbers with the caterers so unfortunately, that is now closed. Drinks will still be available though. We need help to set up the tables and chairs, prepare and serve hot/cold drinks, help to clear up during the afternoon and clear down afterwards. Please speak to me or Margaret and Ken Swift if you can help!

FIRST HOLY COMMUNION LAST WEEKEND
Thanks to everyone for making our two celebrations so prayerful and joyful. Special thanks to our leaders Grainne McGuinness, Marion McCabe, Lesley Crowther and Nicki Barnes. Congratulations to all the children and their families.

WEEK OF GUIDED PRAYER – Thanks to all who took part and to our guides Sr. Treasa, Carmel and Michael O’Malley.

THE PRESENTATION ASSOCIATES are meeting on Wednesday 26th June at 10:00am – 12:00noon in the Hardwick room in the Parish Centre. All welcome!

ST. ANNE’S PORCH POINTING – the inside of the church porch is damp due to failing pointing. This has been redone this week at a cost of £4,500.

PEACE TAIZÉ SERVICE – thanks to Joan, Barbara and Pat for organising this service to pray for peace.

PRAYERS FOR PEACE every Saturday at the Turner Memorial, 11 - 12:00noon led by the Society of Friends. It’s a silent witness with no spoken prayers. All welcome, even if it’s just for 5 minutes!

NEWS FROM CHAPEL - Thanks are due to all who helped make Clara and Sophia’s First Communion so special. They and their families are very grateful. Good progress has been made emptying the old church at Tideswell. Only one bench is left - are you interested? The plan is to hire a skip to remove the detritus. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. Please see Deacon Don who will arrange a suitable date. 
 

If you would like to include anything in the newsletter, please ensure that we receive it by Wednesday of the week before to allow sufficient time for printing.

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
