New and existing members are kindly reminded that for those wishing to pay yearly, their subscription of £60 is now due before end of November please.  If you wish, you may change to monthly payments by standing order, cash or cheque, to be arranged before end of November.  Please be aware that since we are close to having a waiting list of new members wishing to join, we require payments to be settled by end of November each year for all those wishing to continue with yearly subscriptions.  Cheques are payable to “West Leicester Catholic 300 Club.”
Good luck in the draw!


November Envelopes available as you enter church, for you to insert the names of deceased family, friends, relatives and benefactors whom you wish to be remembered during the month of November. These envelopes will be placed in the Sanctuary during November.  Please return the envelopes into the Red Box in the porch.  Any offerings will go towards Masses for Holy Souls during November and throughout the year.

Cemetery Prayers on Sunday 12 November at 3.00pm at Kirby Muxloe Cemetery.

This is an opportunity for us to pray not only for our loved ones, but also for those who have no-one to pray for them.

Annual Memorial Mass will take place on Monday 6 November at 7.00pm. At this Mass, we gather together to remember those members of our community who have died during the past year, and also our deceased loved ones, whether they died recently or a long time ago.


Becoming a Catholic

Next session will take place on Friday 10 November at 7.00pm in Church.  The same session will be repeated at 12 noon on Saturdays for those who can’t make the Friday session.

Card Sale

Maureen will be selling cards after each of the Masses this weekend for the Retired Priests Appeal – please support her efforts!

Catholic Diaries

Now available, £2.50 each from the entrance porch CTS book stand.  Place money in the slot marked ‘Piety’ by the newspapers.

Hymn Books

You may have noticed that we have insufficient hymn books at some of the Masses and that they are getting rather tatty, despite efforts to preserve them. As to the repertoire of hymns that we might wish to find in our parish hymn book a consultation form is available at the back of church, to be returned to Fr John or the Parish Office.
