What's New ...

RECITATION OF THE ROSARY, MASS AND INDIVIDUAL CONFESSIONS, Thursday, 1st December, 7pm, in the Crypt. The young professionals group invites you all to join them.  You are very welcome to attend (whatever age you may be)!

Giving Tree - For some years now the ESCM has had the tradition of an Advent Giving Tree.  The tree is displayed in the Church on Sundays for all to see.  The tree doesn`t have green leaves or pine needles, but rather the branches are decorated with gift tags and on these is written a request e.g. “ Mother age 30”, “Dad age 35”, “Boy age 4”, Girl age 14”.  We ask for your generosity to help families and individuals in our community and others in need, to celebrate the Birth of Our Lord.  You are asked to take 1 or more of these shapes, purchase an appropriate gift and then return the wrapped gift to the office on Sundays or during the week, attaching the original request shape.  PLEASE RETURN ON OR BEFORE SUNDAY 11th December.  The gifts will then be distributed to the families.  Thank you and God bless. 

FOOD PANTRY.  Members of the ESCM community are asked to support this project for our community members by delivering to the Mission office the following items: toiletries for men and women, household detergents, etc. and all non-perishable food items, e.g.: canned – (fruits, vegetables, soups, meats, tuna, corned beef), dried fruits and cereals, biscuits, sugar, salt, rice, packet soup, pasta sauces, vinegar, cooking oil, chocolate or any other items you would like to donate.  All donations are gratefully received.  Our last distribution before Christmas will be on Wednesday, 14th December, 2-3pm.  Thank you.  (The first distribution of 2017 will be on Wednesday, 25th January)

NATIVITY PLAY REHEARSALS.  During the first Mass of Christmas at 7pm on the 24th December, the children of the ESCM will re-enact the Gospel, which is the Nativity story.  This is a great way of helping our children to really understand the wonder of the Nativity story, and is a lovely start to Christmas.  If your children would like to take part, rehearsals will be held in the Forumsaal after Mass on Sunday, 11th December (12.30-1.30pm) and Sunday 18th December (12.30-2.30pm).  All parts will be allocated at the first rehearsal on 11th December.  We will also have a run through before Mass at 6pm on Christmas Eve in the Crypt.  We would like to see as many children as possible take part this year.  The plan is for the under 10s to act in the play and the over 10s to narrate and do the readings.  We hope to see many of you at first rehearsal on 11th December.  Thanks.  Sam & Téa de Mello

FUNDRAISER.  On Sunday 11th December, immediately after the 11.15am Mass, you are invited to join us in the Cafeteria for snacks (pancakes, sandwiches, etc.).  All the proceeds will go to "Hope for Widows and Orphans", which supports widows and orphans in Rwanda and Congo.  Further information is available here: http://www.ic-ia.org/prj_hww-evo/prj_hww-evo_EN.php
