“The Catholic Mothers Apostolate” is offering a retreat for teen girls and their mums. Join them at Aylesford Priory in October for a day dedicated to learning more about women’s issues, including what it means to be a Catholic woman; how to improve mother-daughter communication; how fertility affects our lives at every stage; and how to grow in the faith.
Mums and daughters will have plenty of time to talk through the issues together and build their relationship, as well as meet other Catholic mothers and daughters.  Tickets are £120 per mother-daughter pair, with an Early Bird rate of £100. Visit https://www.tickettailor.com/events/catholicmothers/177368 for more details.


LA SALETTE CHRISTMAS BAZAAR: As part of our Parish fundraising the Estate Agent William H Brown has offered to erect boards in the front gardens of local houses advertising the La Salette Christmas Bazaar.  For each board they will pay us a fee.  A minimum of 30 boards will be required.  If you are willing to have a board on your property please sign up in the porch with your address and phone no. as soon as possible.  It is anticipated that the boards will go up in October.  N.B. IT WON’T COST YOU ANYTHING
