Further Announcements



El Shaddai South Yorkshire Prayer Group: Everyone is invited to the Prayer Group, held every 1st Saturday in the month, 1pm to 4pm in Sacred Heart hall (next one Saturday 6th May). More details: Ray Veneracion

Carmel Care: How would you like to be a 'musical volunteer'? Carmel Care Centre is looking for people with musical or singing talent, to join us on Wednesday mornings between 10.30-12.30 to make music! If you have more time you can even stay and have lunch. We especially need someone to play the piano. You would also be very welcome if you have ‘green fingers’ to help weeding, planting and watering the garden at Carmel on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays.  Dykes Hall Road S6 4GS


Gift Aid:  the tax the parish can reclaim from HMRC is an important source of income and we would like to encourage any taxpayers who do not currently make their offering under Gift Aid to consider doing so. It is the best way of increasing your offering without it costing you more, since currently, the government will increase each £1 of your personal offering by a further 25p.For the parish to reclaim the tax on your offering, you, the taxpayer, need to make a Gift Aid declaration and we, the parish, need to have a record of the date and amount of your offerings. Offerings can be by standing order, cheque or cash in a numbered offertory envelope. Your Gift Aid Declaration will cover all donations recorded by the parish, including for the Food Pantry. You will find Gift Aid declaration forms at the back of church near the hymn books. When you have completed the form, please hand it either to our the presbytery or drop it through the letterbox. Please be assured that the administration of Gift Aid is completely confidential. If you have any questions about about Gift Aid, please call Janina Klapas . If you are considering making a gift to the Church in your will, information can be obtained by contacting the presbytery. Thank you for your continuing support. It is very much appreciated. Offertory envelopes are at the back of church.  If you want to start using envelopes please let us know.


Parish Emergency Food Pantry: The people who rely on the food pantry are very grateful for your support. The number of  requests for help made at the door is currently running at about 40 per week. If you wish to contribute to the food pantry, there are three ways to do this: 1. Purchase food and bring it to the presbytery. Canned and packaged goods are best and items requiring little or no preparation are most popular. 2. Make regular donations by standing order with a reference of “food pantry”. The parish bank account details are: HSBC, sort code 404107, account number 21094319. 3.Donate by cash / cheque in an envelope marked “food pantry” and put it in the offertory basket. Please note: all cheques should be made payable to “Diocese of Hallam – Sacred Heart”. There are some marked envelopes at the back of church for this purpose. Many thanks for all your help, including new standing orders received. It really is much appreciated by local people in need.
