The event will help raise funds for the parish and is restricted to over 18s only. There will be no bar facilities therefore it is BYOB (bring your own bottle). Soft drinks will be available along with some crisps/snacks for each table as part of the ticket price. Tickets are now on sale at our Sunday Masses and cost £5.00 each. Donations for raffle prizes would be very welcome.

Advent Scripture Study: ‘Matthew’s Gospel for Living a Christian Life’
Corresponding with the beginning of a new liturgical year (Year A), the parish will be hosting a series of four sessions on Matthew’s Gospel just before and during Advent. The sessions will take place on Thursday evenings in the church hall, 7.30pm – 9.00pm (28 Nov, 5, 12, 19 Dec). Each session will be interactive, blending modern scholarship on Matthew with readings of particular passages by parishioners drawing on their own experience. The series will be facilitated by our own longstanding parishioner, Philip Esler, Portland Professor in New Testament Studies at the University of Gloucestershire, Cheltenham (and formerly Professor of Biblical Criticism in the University of St Andrews, 1992-2010). Please do put the dates in your diary. All welcome.
We will be holding a parish fundraising coffee morning on Saturday 30 November from 10am in the Legion Hall, Nethergate, Crail. Please contact Yvonne Richmond on tel: (01333) 451745 if you can help, donate raffle prizes or have any queries. All welcome.
