Curé d'Ars Festival 2017 the Church celebrates one of the most remarkable priests, Jean-Marie Vianney, the Curé d’Ars. He is the Patron Saint of Parish Clergy and so I do hope that you can join me on Friday August 4th at 12 noon at St Mary’s for a celebration of the Holy Eucharist at the High Altar followed by a ‘bring-and-share something French to eat’ lunch in the hall. I will provide some French drink! See you there, all welcome. Canon John
Friends of St Mary’s Barbecue The annual Friends BBQ will take place on 29th July at 6.30pm at 14 Leverstock Green Road as usual. Let's hope for a fine night but any problems we will ring whoever is on the list. After many years of a price freeze we have decided to increase it to £6.50. As you will be aware everything has gone up! Please sign up as soon as possible on the sheet at the back of the Church.
Deanery Outing The Deanery is organising a coach outing to Christchurch, Oxford on July 29th. There is a poster on the notice board giving full details.
Unwanted items at St Mary’s The Team Rector and Churchwardens have had a walk around St Mary's to remove things that either are not used or have been accumulated for unknown reasons over the years. There are some plastic tubs at the back of church with these items in. If any of them are important to you perhaps you could take them away in the next couple of weeks before we recycle them. There are a number of non religious children's books and books from various places in church that are no longer needed. If you would like any of them then please take them from the book pew at the back.
