Deacon John Keeley: The reinstatement of the permanent diaconate after the Second Vatican Council has been a great gift to the church. It has meant that married and family men have been able to bring a new dimension to ministry, but this has been possible only with the loving support of the rest of the family. It is for that reason that we again extend our congratulations to John, Maureen and all the family for the past 25 years of John's ministry in this parish.

Census forms: we have had a great response to the census and details are gradually being entered into our database. The Parish Pastoral Group is identifying those who have offered help in various capacities and you will all be contacted in due course, but please feel free to contact leaders directly if you are interested in helping in any way. Please keep sending in forms if you have not already done so. This is an ongoing exercise so it is never too late. Please also remember to let us know of any changes/moves in the future.

Zimbabwe Christmas Project:

Thank you for all the support for our Redemptorist communities in Zimbabwe. There remain just a few of the gift vouchers (akin to Oxfam and CAFOD vouchers) at the Monastery for Bro Benjamin's project among the children who are victims of the AIDS pandemic. Please see the poster in the porch. A £10 voucher will feed a child-headed household or a group of AIDS orphans for a month. Please hand in donations to the Monastery.

The Redemptorists London Province was grateful to receive more than £4000 for the Zimbabwe mission, part of the £6500 collected from our Red Boxes during 2011. Thanks again to the box holders and collectors.

If you would like to be part of this traditional Catholic charity for the missions please ask for a Red Box to put in your home. It will be emptied at least twice a year.
