Donations for the Little Brothers

There is now a collection box in the entrance hall at Saint Paul’s for items to be donated to the Little Brothers of the Good Shepherd.

Donations required include tinned and packet food (non-perishable items), gloves, hats, scarves, disposable razors, shaving foam, deodorant, shower gel, men’s socks and underwear.  We have supported the Little Brothers at recent harvest festivals, but they gladly welcome donations throughout the year.

The Little Brothers are a religious order, working with the poor and needy in Wolverhampton and around the world.  For more information, you can check out their web site, http://www.lbgs.org/

PCC tonight

A quick reminder to all involved that PCC meets tonight.

PCC (Parochial Church Council) is the governing body for the parish – it is made up from the clergy and elected members of the congregation from all three churches (who also have a place on the individual church councils, or DCCs).  Elections to PCC and DCC will be held at the Annual Church Meeting on 10th April after the 10:30am service.

DCC tonight

A reminder to all involved that DCC meets tonight at Saint Paul’s, 7:30pm, to approve the annual accounts.  Rumour has it that this will be a short meeting!

The DCC (District Church Council) is the governing body of the church.  Its membership includes our vicar and those elected by the congregation.  Elections will be held at our annual church meeting on Sunday 10th April, 2011.  If you are interested in standing for election, do have a conversation with Jim or the churchwardens.
