Fr Philip’s Golden Jubilee
On Saturday 21st September Fr Philip gives thanks for the privilege of serving as a priest in the Church of God for 50 years. There is a Sung Mass at 12.00 in St Mary’s to which all are welcome, though because of the large number expected, catering had to be pre-arranged, so he regrets the celebration lunch afterwards is available only to those who have already responded to his invitation.
Enquirers' Group begins in October.........
The care and protection of children, young people and adults involved in Church activities is the responsibility of everyone who participates in the life of the Church.

We continue to work with Stowmarket Churches Together, alongside some local businesses and the Council to support the Stowmarket Foodbank, which provides emergency food parcels for people
experiencing crisis in and around Stowmarket throughout the year.
There are two red boxes in St Mary's Mendlesham near the porch door for people to contribute dried and canned foods, plus tea, coffee and toiletries.
Volunteers work with local organisations to identify individuals and families who can benefit.
It is good to know that many people in the village are giving regularly so that the boxes fill rapidly. Please continue to donate to this worthwhile project.
