Last Chance to Vote for the New Parish Project

Thank you to all who have contributed towards a final donation to Fr Nicklas Maria. After collating all amounts given via Jessie’s box, bank transfer and the proceeds from the BBQ, I am pleased to tell you that we have now made a donation to Fr Nicklas Maria of £3,100.  Thank you all for your generosity, such an amount will make a significant difference in his parish in Russia. Please remember to vote for our new parish project to take effect from January. Voting forms can be found at the back of the Church and completed forms can be posted in the box marked in the Parish Rooms. The forms will be reviewed and the votes counted after today.

As you will recall, Fr Nicklas Maria was nominated as our ‘Parish Project’ at the beginning of 2016 for a period of 3 years.  Now that the 3 years is almost at an end, we would like you, the parish, to vote again so that we can determine our parish project for the next 3 years beginning in January 2020.  Forms are now available at the back of the Church which include some suggestions as well as a space if you would like to nominate another beneficiary not already put forward. Completed forms can be posted into the box marked ‘Parish Project Nominations’ on the sideboard in the Parish Rooms.  It is planned that forms will then be reviewed and votes counted after 15th December and the new parish project announced at the end of the year. In the meantime, if you would like to make a final contribution towards a last donation to Fr Nicklas at the beginning of December, please do so before the end of this month.  You can give either by putting a cash donation into ‘Jessie’s Box’ at the back of the church, or by making a bank transfer to the parish bank account including the word ‘project’ in the payment reference.  If you need any further details on how to do this, please email Caroline Reid on finance@stmaryscathedral.co.uk.
