Sponsored Flower Arrangements:: We are offering the opportunity for you to sponsor one of the flower arrangements in Church, either on the pedestal by the statue of Mary or in the Lady Chapel. A contribution between £30 and £50 is suggested. The flowers could commemorate the memory of a loved one or the anniversary of a happy event. Fr Andrew is happy to help with any aspect of this project including a mention of the dedication in the pew sheet. The sponsor, if they wish, could help select the choice of flowers and colours. Jackie E will be pleased to discuss the scope of the flower arrangement with you.
Readers are reminded that there will usually be a large print version of the reading available on the piano. Please check before the start of the service.
If you know of anyone who would appreciate a visit from a member of St Saviour's or the Vicar, please let a Churchwarden know.
Please make use of the Church Library and bookstall.

Passover Supper, Tuesday 31st March at 7pm: Please come to this wonderful communal meal for the Parish, which helps us understand the link between our Christian faith and Judaic tradition. If you are coming, please sign the list at the back of the Church. Ann F

Please return your completed form by the closing date, 30th March, to me or Fr. Peter. Tony Clayton, Electoral Roll Secretary
Lenten Charity: During Lent, coffee and tea will still be served after the Parish Eucharist but no biscuits will be provided. Donations will be given to the Open Door Charity which works to ensure that no-one need sleep rough in St Albans and to improve the life chances of homeless people in our community. We do hope that you will all support this venture. Ann F
Lent Group: The next meeting will be on Thursday 12th March from 2.30-4pm at the house of Elizabeth and James C. If you need directions, please phone Elizabeth and James on 01727 864955.

Book Club: The next meeting of the book club will be on Thursday 5th March at 8pm at 44 Robert Avenue. We shall be discussing 'The Secret Life of Bees' by Sue Monk Kidd.
International Organ Festival: This takes place again in late June/July. Fr. Peter needs someone to shadow him through the preparations and the festival itself to learn about St Saviour's involvement and to be able to advise the Parochial Church Council about what is needed for future festivals. It does require someone who is available during the day on weekdays. It's a fascinating event with competitors and judges from all over the world. Please speak to Fr. Peter if you would like to be involved.
Walsingham Day Pilgrimage 2015: This year our day visit to The Shrine of Our lady of Walsingham will take place on Saturday 4th July leaving the Church at 7.30am and returning around 9.00pm. In order to organise the coach please indicate your interest on the sign up sheet at the back of Church. This is a lovely opportunity to have time at one of the holiest places in England as we join the countless stream of pilgrims who have found their way there since Lady Richeldis's vision in the year 1061. For those thinking of coming for the first time do ask about the structure of the day or visit their website www.walsinghamanglican.org.uk. Fr Andrew
Parish Pilgrimage 2016: Next year, Malta! Malta is full of delights, ancient and modern, and good food. It is beautiful, English speaking and relaxing. So rather different from Palermo (destination of the brilliant 2014 pilgrimage) but likely to be just as rewarding. We have found a wonderful Franciscan retreat house with very reasonable rates, and plan to go in the autumn break 2016, to allow families and teachers to join. If you are interested, let Imogen or Jeremy know. No obligation - we just need and indication of numbers to make the booking. Speak to one of us after Mass, leave a message on 01727 830323 or email delaberi@gmail.com.
