FR MICHAEL’S LEAVING DO Please join us for wine and nibbles on Saturday 17th July 2021 from 3-5pm in the Pugin Rooms. Non-alcoholic options will be available. There will be a sign up sheet in the porch next week if you would like to bring something.


SOCIALISATION AFTER MASS We are now promoting this community creating time around the prayer tree after every Mass. There will be a sign-up sheet in the porch if you would like to host something such as lemonade and cake. You can do this as a one off or on a rota basis. It does not have to be fancy – even iced tea is a big hit and costs only 2 tea bags and some sugar! Thank you to all who will come forwards to host this as it is such a blessing we can meet again and get to know one another in this lovely weather!

CANDLES collection will now be separated from the main collection and a collection box will be provided beside the candles of the New Church from next week.

SELF-CLEANING IN THE OLD CHURCH “If you stay to pray you spray” For Mass or for private prayer in the Old Church, please note this is now self-service cleaning. Spray and wipes and bin (by the candles) are provided for you to use to wipe regularly touched areas.

NEWSLETTER ENTRIES If have any entries, please send them on to Madeline at parish.stpetermarlow@

St. Vincent de Paul Society Appeal The SVP Marlow Conference here at St. Peter’s has been active for .over 55

years. Unfortunately, in recent times, it has seen its membership dwindle, largely owing to issues such as age and

health among a number of its longest serving members. Two or three such members have left in the last year since the

onset of Covid. In order to continue and also to put in place a viable succession plan, we need to replenish these

numbers.We are therefore appealing to anyone who might be willing to join our Conference.

It is most rewarding work, looking out for the vulnerable within our local community, including those

who are alone or confined to Care Homes, by way of visits (Covid rules permitting), phone calls, errands

or other practical help.Also, over a long time, we have played the major role in organising three important events in the

Parish calendar, namely the Spring Lunch (February), the Bluebell Run (May) and the Parish Outing

(September). Any prospective new members are warmly invited to contact Malcolm Thomas (tel. M. 483450 or email:
