The painting of our Syston Church has been completed: The Church looks really beautiful. I hope you will be happy to see the changes. I am VERY GRATEFUL to every parishioner for making this possible through your donations and support. On behalf of the Parish, I express SPECIAL THANKS to a number of parishioners who have been visiting the Church to offer their help in one way or another. He would not want to be mentioned but I am especially grateful to Stephen Quinn who came to the Church on a daily basis to inspect/see how the decorators were progressing and check if other places also needed attention. Additionally, he attended to repairs and various odds jobs in the Church to better enable the painting work to run smoothly. A couple of jobs outstanding, in the porch and in Our Lady’s Chapel, will be done shortly. THANK YOU ALL. Please see a video below of the changes

A big thank-you to Mary, Stephen, and Stephen Paul Quinn for creating and donating to the parish a new Nativity Stable using recycled materials in their garage at home.
The new nativity crib will be erected in front of the altar to help us with our Christmas prayers and worship during this holy season. The pictures are attached herewith.

Beware of Scammers and anyone asking for money or your bank card details, no matter who they claim to be.
One of our senior parishioners from Sileby received a phone call yesterday from a Birmingham number.
The caller claimed to be “your priest from the Church”. He pressed the parishioner to give him £20 by giving him her Debit Card details.
This is a Crime and obviously, there is no priest or anyone acting on behalf of the Church who can be allowed
to request or collect money from the people in this way. Please be wary of scams that have increased significantly during this pandemic.
If you do fall prey to one, however, you can report it to the Fraud Police by calling 0300 123 2040.
Stay safe and may God bless and protect you. Fr Clement

A sponsored walk to raise £15,000 for urgent Syston Church roof repairs.
I would like to do a 15-mile power walk on 20th March 2021 in Rutland to raise £15,000 towards Syston Church roof repairs. As we do not have enough parish savings, may I appeal to all my parishioners, my friends and everyone to sponsor me, please?
The roof has nine valleys and now after over 50 years since the Church was built, they all need repairs. The old needs to be replaced with new lead and new tiles around the valleys. As a matter of urgency and to avoid further damage to the building, four valleys have just been done at a cost of £5,304 (quotations are on our noticeboard).
Thank you all for your support. Fr. Clement
