MARYS MEALS - RAGS TO RICHES COLLECTION We have received the following letter
from the organisers of Marys Meals. A very big thank you for allowing Marys Meals to have
its Rags to Riches collection at the Catholic Church of Our Lady of Peace and St Andrews last
Sunday. I am delighted to say that the parishes managed to give 1000kg* and 175kg* (*estimate
based upon the number of bags that were given)of unwanted clothes respectively; there were
also cash donations of 312.24 and 277.55 respectively making a total contribution of 812.24
and 365.05 respectively (the grand total is 1,177.29). Please let the parishes know how
grateful Marys Meals is for its support this is a really good result! The amount raised will feed
96 children who will not only get fed one good, nutritious meal every school day for a whole year,
but they will get an education too.
DECEASED Please pray for Patrick Anthony Dixon RIP who died recently, his Funeral Service
will be in St Andrews on Friday, 29th April at 12.45pm, followed by burial at Slough Cemetery.
May his soul and the souls of all the faithful departed rest in peace. Amen

RECRUITING! How would you like to join a group of very friendly individuals on Tuesday
evenings for a sing-along! The Our Lady of Peace choir is always looking for new members.
You do not have to worry that you cannot make every single practice and do not worry about
having top quality voices - all voices are welcome and no auditions necessary. We are a very
relaxed choir and each week as we rehearse, we bond and grow stronger and at the same time,
have a lot of fun. Come and see us on (alternative) Sundays at Our Lady of Peace after 9.45am
Mass if you would like to know more.
