Macmillan Coffee Morning

Once again we plan to take part in the World’s Biggest Coffee Morning on Friday 28th September. But we need your help, either to provide food on the day or simply to attend and donate, helping us to raise money for this very worthy cause.

We would really appreciate donations of scones or tray bakes to be left in the Clayton Hall kitchen on the Thursday evening between 7.00pm and 8.00pm or before 9.00am on the Friday morning.
Teas and coffees will be served from 10.30am until 12.00 noon, so please try to join us and encourage as many of your friends as possible to pop in too.
Don’t miss this opportunity to support these wonderful nurses whose role is invaluable to those who suffer from this life changing disease and to their
families.

 

History Reading Group

The next meeting of the Dromore Cathedral History Reading Group will take place on Monday 22 October 2018 at 7.30pm in The Clayton Hall. The book for discussion is The First Crusade – A New History by Thomas Asbridge. All are welcome to attend; and as usual, snacks and a lively discussion are guaranteed.

Clothes and Fabrics Collection

Having a “tidy out” of your drawers and wardrobes? Why not donate unwanted clothes and shoes to the Church? Simply bring your items to the right hand garage in the Clayton Hall Yard on the week commencing 24th September until Wednesday 24th October. It would greatly asssit us if you could ensure that all clothing and fabric have been cleaned and are pre-bagged to assist with sorting/handling.

WHAT CAN I PUT IN BAGS?

We can say YES to
Men’s Clean Clothing
Women’s Clean Clothing
Children’s Clean Clothing
Paired shoes, Handbags, Belts
Bed linen, Curtains

but we must say NO to:
Dirty or wet clothing
Single shoes
Off cuts of material
Uniforms

The more clothing suitable for re-use
collected, the more money we will raise!

 

Commissioning of Diocesan Readers

We are delighted to be hosting a service of commissioning for Diocesan Readers at 8pm on Friday 21st September.  18 Diocesan Readers will be commissioned at the service, which is extremely encouraging that so many people feel that God has a desire to use them to expound his Word for his people.  Everyone is welcome to attend this service and we would encourage a good number from our own Cathedral to come along to support these Readers in their ministry.  Bishop Harold will be commissioning the Readers and preaching at the service.  Everyone is welcome to join in refreshments in the Cathedral Hall immediately following the service.

Cathedral Lapel Badges

 

The Select Vestry have conceived of a fundraising idea for Parish funds which is also a great way of showing support for the Cathedral – Lapel Badges. Each badge bears the crest of Dromore and is priced at the modest amount of £3.50. Anyone wishing to purchase a badge should place their name on the list in the Church Porch or contact the Church office.

Badges which have already been ordered can be collected at the Church Porch this Sunday. Thank you.
