25th Sunday, 20th September - Home Mission Sunday
We have regular “Mission” appeals – requests to support those working on the “foreign missions”. Today we are asked to pray for the work of the Church here at home – to pray that every Catholic, every parish, will try to share their Faith – that we will become “missioners” here in our own backyard. There will be a second collection today to support the work of “MISSION” in England and Wales.

Today we welcome in Baptism Noah Derek Lane. We remember him and his family in our prayers.
Thank you for last week’s collection of £1009.
Friends of St. Gregory’s School – AGM
The Annual General Meeting will be held at the School on October 1st at 6.00pm. All parents are automatically members of the FoSG – and parishioners are also welcome to join. The Friends have been most generous in raising funds for the school – evidence of that generosity is seen in the features in the school grounds. Nominations for the Chair, Vice Chair, Secretary, Treasurer should be submitted in writing to the School Office before 25 September.
The children (with their parents) will be delivering their Harvest Parcels to our older parishioners on Friday 2nd October between 10.00 and 11.30am..
Dates For The Diary
Confirmations - Bishop John Rawstorne will be here on the 1st December to confirm our children in School. This will be an opportunity for those who knew Bishop John to meet again: after retiring as Bishop of Hallam he has returned to the Diocese and is serving as a curate in Widnes.

A School Prayer
The children of St. Gregory’s are learning this prayer which they use at school. Perhaps we might pray it with them – and for them.
