Se­nior Choir: The Sun­day 12 Noon Mass Choir is looking for new mem­bers es­pe­cially men, of all ages to join as they start on their St. Pa­trick’s Day and Easter pro­grammes.

No mu­si­cal ex­pe­ri­ence is nec­es­sary, nei­ther is an abil­ity to read mu­sic, just en­thu­si­asm and a de­sire to sign. Those in­ter­ested should con­tact Mar­garet on 086-1696361 or just come along to re­hearsal on Mon­days at 8pm in Room 7 of the Parish Cen­tre.

Bray Com­mu­nity Car­ers: If you have one hour a week to spare or if you need a lit­tle sup­port please call He­len, Sylvia or Wally at 086-8870714.

Ik­aga: Fol­low­ing the fail­ure of the ex­pected sea­sonal rains over the past year to ma­te­ri­al­ize, the Kenyan gov­ern­ment has re­ported that some 10 mil­lion Kenyans which equates to nearly one third of the en­tire pop­u­la­tion, have in­suf­fi­cient food and the Holy Redeemer’s twin parish of Ikanga is one of the worst ar­eas af­fected.

This week­end there will be a spe­cial col­lec­tion for Ikanga and every­one is asked to help as best they can as ev­ery cent col­lected will be sent di­rectly to those who need it.

Take Care: Please be care­ful of your be­long­ings when in the church es­pe­cially at quiet times and in par­tic­u­lar when go­ing to com­mu­nion as noth­ing of value should be left in your seat. OUR LADY QUEEN OF PEACE
