HARVEST SUNDAY Welcome to Harvest Sunday at All Saints Ecclesall. As our way of giving thanks for all we receive from God, we will, as usual, make a collection of groceries, tinned and dried foods, pot plants and confectionery. These will be distributed among local charities, elderly or frail parishioners and those particularly in need of our love and prayers. Please join us if you can for distribution of the gifts tomorrow morning (Monday 15 Oct) when we will need help packing from 9.30am in church and car drivers to deliver the gifts from 11am. Please could we ask volunteers to use the North door at the side of the church as Bumps and Babies will be using the welcome area. Tea, coffee and biscuits will be served. Please contact Bev and Dave Popplewell for further information on 236 1010. Our thanks go to Bev and Dave for organising collection and distribution of gifts.

You can return your completed box to church anytime up to Sunday 11 November.

MICHAEL AND ALL ANGELS, MARTINEZ, BUENOS AIRES, ARGENTINA Argentina is a country in economic free-fall with a currency devaluing daily, a huge dollar indebtedness, galloping inflation approaching 50% and interest rates of 60%. The resultant hardship is felt by all levels of society and there has been a significant rise in street crime and house robberies. The work of our link church of St. Michael and All Angels in providing help to mothers and children in the nearby shanty town through the Friday Social Action activity is proving an increasingly valuable lifeline for the most needy with the weekly teaching of life skills and crafts together with a meal and a bag of food to take home at the end of the afternoon. The Diocese is in good spirit nonetheless with the placement of new clergy in several parishes. We thank the Lord for the faithfulness of the congregations and pray for the fruitful ministry of the established and newly-placed clergy.
