Thank you to everyone who puts money into the CHRISTMAS DUES envelopes and places them in the safe. 
Remember that cheques should have Holy Family Parish written on them not an individual person. 
To help us with our new database, perhaps you could print your surname clearly, house no and street name.  Huge numbers of Dues cannot be allocated to parishioners because of insufficient information on the envelope.  Many thanks.
