Deacon Vincent Calder
We ask the parish to pray for Deacon Vincent who is currently unwell in hospital. Please remember him and his family in your prayers.
Ss Simon & Jude
O God, who by the blessed Apostles have brought us to acknowledge your name,
graciously grant, through the intercession of Saints Simon and Jude,
that the Church may constantly grow by increase of the peoples who believe in you.
Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
one God, for ever and ever. Amen
Let's put myths aside and do what we can for our beautiful planet. Pray, read, recycle, educate, help, re-use, care.....
A Message from North Bristol FoodBank
"In the last week, we have seen incredible generosity by the public. Thank you so much. Please do share this video we produced recently showing how the foodbank works, as we all work together to see food poverty come to an end one day. #thiscanchange "
Watch this short video from the North Bristol Foodbank... in these tricky times, they are needed more than ever.
Our local food bank is at Resound Bristol Church in Mangotsfield.
Contact them for drop off hours and items needed if you can help.

Grassroots Suicide Prevention
"We know conversations can save lives. But it is important to understand the difference between healthy and unhealthy language when talking about suicide. Words matter."
Our Parish Project, Grassroots suicide prevention, is working hard to raise awareness of the stigma around suicide. We can help to educate ourselves and those around us by talking, using the right language, and engaging with someone if you are concerned about their mental health.
The charity has lots of useful ways to manage concerns.... please visit their website for lots of information.

CHANGE TO MASS TIMES
Now that the clocks have changed and the evenings are dark we have had a few requests for a daytime Mass during the week. This will help those who don't wish to come out or drive in the dark to be able to attend Mass.
Therefore, from Thursday 12th November onwards, each Thursday Mass will be at 10.00am.
We have changed the details on the Eventbrite booking system.
We hope this will be a useful change for those who have mentioned it to us and we hope it will mean as many people can still attend Mass who are able to.
God bless you all, Fr Frank
Apart, yet together. #ChurchAtHome
