Dear Friends,

Today is Peace Sunday when we are asked to pray particularly for peace in the World. There will be a Second Collection for Pax Christi, an international Catholic movement for peace, which offers support and encouragement to work for justice and peace.

THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELLED DUE TO THE WEATHER…THE OCTAVE OF PRAYER FOR CHRISTIAN UNITY started on Friday, 18th January until 25th January. To celebrate this week, Churches Together are holding a Songs of Praise with the Fakenham Town Band and the Parish Church Choir TODAY, 20th January at 6.30 pm at Fakenham Parish Church.

WE NEED HELP with counting the collection and arranging the flowers in Church. If you can help please contact Fr Tony. We also need a new Organist, can you help please?
