PARISH DIRECTORY.  The Directory was last published in 2017 and needs updating.  If you have arrived in the parish since the last Directory was published and would like your contact details to be listed please fill in one of the entry forms, fold and leave in the box marked “Parish Directory” at the church.  Similarly, if you have moved house since 2017 and would like your new address included, please complete one of the forms with your new contact details.


Of your charity pray for the happy repose of the soul of David William Kirby who died on 7th January, age 84, fortified by the rites of Holy Church.  His Requiem Mass will be celebrated in St. Clare’s Church on Friday 31st January at 11.30 a.m. followed by burial in Framlingham public cemetery.  May he rest in peace.


CAFOD: On Saturday 1st February, St. Thomas’s Church is hosting a Lent planning meeting on behalf of CAFOD 11.00 a.m. to 1.00 p.m. in The Upper Room.  This is an opportunity for you to hear about CAFOD’s work, directly from those with personal experience.  Jess Michlemore from CAFOD’s Latin American Team will talk about "hands on" projects in Colombia.  Refreshments will be provided. All parishioners are welcome to attend.  Myles Smith.


ST. ANNE’S SCHOOL, KALIMPONG. We have just received Christmas cards from our school in Kalimpong.  Please have a look at them on your way out of church.  The letters are especially impressive.  We are proud of their progress in other Upper Schools and several are now working or studying.  As a parish we should be very proud of this.  Anne Harries.


Peter Grimer left four volumes of The Life of Jesus Christ” favourite bed-time reading of three popes, I’m told, for the parish to enjoy.  I have loaned out two volumes and have now lost track of them.  If you have one, please return it so that we can start the process as Peter wished it.  Thank you.    Anne Harries.
