Sunday Offertory Collection:
Fr Peter writes: For those of you at home who are self-isolating, I would prefer you suspend your offertory collection until we are all able to return to St Mary’s. I also do not want to add any financial burden to those who are finding these weeks of “lockdown” worrying. I am sure, once we are all together – we will work a way forward. To those who have been dropping in envelopes – I am very grateful but please do not make it a priority at this time – stay inside, and stay safe. I have only been at St Mary’s a short time, but have been able to observe a resourceful and imaginative parish – I am sure we can rely on those gifts once we gather together in Church.

Fr Peter writes: A very big thank you to everyone donating food or money for the Finchley Foodbank. So far, with the care and resourcefulness of the management group and volunteers, it has been able to remain open. Our priority is now food – so rather than money, we would be grateful for cartons of UHT milk, tins of meat, fish, fruit, custard, rice pudding, vegetables, or tomatoes. Packets of pasta, pulses cereal, tea, biscuits or soap. If you able to spare any of these items please hand them in to me at the presbytery.
Prayers & Intentions:
Fr Peter writes: Although you do not have access to the Church, I am very happy to light a candle for or put your intention or petition on the wooden panels very near to the Tabernacle. Either email or give me a call and I will take note of what you wish me to do.
A PEACEFUL AND HOLY EASTER TO YOU.
