ALL VOLUNTEERS PLEASE NOTE-very important: Kevin Harvey (the Archdiocese H&S Representative) has flagged up an issue that has arisen in some Parishes. If you do any regular jobs at the church OTHER than at Mass times (eg cleaning, counting money, reception duty etc) and you DRIVE to church, please inform your motor insurers that you do voluntary work at church. There should be no increase in your premium. There have been instances of Parishioners who have had traffic accidents coming out of church and their insurers have not settled the claim due to being unaware of the drivers’ voluntary duties.

Perfumed Rosary Beads
St John Vianney’s Parish Sister, Sister Mary, who is now housebound, makes ‘real’ Rosary beads from real rose petals thus producing perfumed beads. She buys the accessories from overseas and then takes a couple of months preparing the crushed rose petals, until ready for beading. Sister then hand assembles the beads, the chains and crucifix complete with their presentation box, they are so blessed! Sister produces these to help raise much-needed funds for those in Bangladesh who have had their villages and churches destroyed by floods. A set costs £10 and are available by ringing the Parish Office of St John Vianney, Halewood.
