BROADSHEET FOR NOVEMBER 2017

EUCHARISTIC ASSISTANTS; The Archdeacon recently licensed (at Solemn Evensong and Benediction for All Saints on Nov 5th) the following people as Eucharistic Assistants: Sheldon Beukes, Alun Davies, Jennifer Davies, Rebecca Davies, Margaux Feris, Julia Maupa, Karabo Maupa, Vusi Ndhlovu, Peter Sprong, Howard Skeens (renewal). We have previously had two Eucharistic Assistants; the late Walter Savage and Howard Skeens. This is an office that was introduced in this Diocese only in the time of Bishop David Beetge. To distinguish them from lay ministers they have a similar badge of office, but the ribbon may not be purple or magenta. This latter colour is reserved for lay ministers to indicate their office is held under licence from the Bishop. For the Eucharistic Assistants in this parish we have chosen the colour blue (the parish colour, the colour of heavenly beings; For the congregations, St Michael's is red, St Gabriel's yellow and St Raphael's Green). They assist with the chalice at the Eucharist but may not lead the synaxis (the first part of the service). Their training is basic and simple and done under the authority of the Archdeacon locally in the parish. Because of the responsibility they carry of administering communion to the congregation they need an 80% yes vote from the parish council before being licensed to ensure they are people of peace and good relationships among the congregation. They are licensed for a 3 year term.

* Carols by candle-light; 6pm Saturday 16th December

* Celebrating 40 years of Fr Tom's priesthood; Sun 10 Dec. Mass 10am at St Michael's, followed by lunch. (Mass at St Gabriel's and St Raphael's as usual. No 9am Mass at st Michael's.

BIRTHDAY TEAS; Celebrate your birthday with the Parish Family

From January we would like to give an opportunity for parishioners to celebrate their birthdays with the Parish family. On the first Sunday of the month (St Michael's and St Raphael's only) those who celebrated birthdays or anniversaries in the previous month are invited to bring cake / eats for tea after the service. The first such Sunday will be the February. At St Gabriel's those who are celebrating birthdays or anniversaries in the week are invited to bring cake. Please though speak to the tea team to let them know otherwise there may be far too much to eat.



THANKS; to Ian Davies and his workers for fixing the flooring at the entrance to the Vineyard, and for re-doing the flooring on the North side of the Sanctuary at St Michael's. The servers cupboards had to be moved so that the screen in memory of Mattie Weir can be erected. It is temporarily in place but has still to get its stained glass and wooden panel inserts.
