Second Collection for November 5 and 6.

SECOND COLLECTION – This weekend at all Masses, November 5 & 6 – for Peter’s Pence. Thank you for your generosity.
According to Pope Benedict: “…‘Peter’s Pence’ is the most characteristic expression of the participation of all the faithful in the Bishop of Rome’s charitable initiatives in favour of the universal Church. The gesture has not only a practical value, but also a strong symbolic one, as a sign of communion with the Pope and attention to the needs of one’s brothers; and therefore your service possesses a refined ecclesial character”. (Address to the Members of the St Peter Circle, 25 February 2006).
