FLOWERS IN CHURCH The flowers have been kindly donated By Christine Hopper in memory of her mother Doreen. If you would like to make a donation for flowers in memory of a loved one or to celebrate an anniversary or special birthday please see Linda Harrison. A rota for flowers is displayed on the noticeboard  by the office door. CAFÉ PETRUS Café Petrus will take place following the 11am Mass on Wednesday 4th May. Do come and join us for lunch. Please see Christine Hopper or Linda Harrison so we can cater for the correct number. DEVELOPMENT FUNDRAISING A brilliant suggestion from one of our Parishioners is that each and every one of us, on our birthday, gives a cheque to the Development Fund equating to the number of years we are celebrating! As you celebrate your birthday, please make out your cheque to St Wilfrid's PCC No. 3 Account and write 'development' on the back then send it Pam Grant at the Parish Office.   CONFIRMATION Confirmations will take place on 5th June. Those wishing to be prepared for confirmation should speak to Fr Gordon. Classes will commence at Evensong today.   ASCENSION OF THE LORD This Thursday we celebrate The Ascension with a sung Mass at 7pm in the church. All are welcome! WALK FOR ST WILFRID 8TH MAY 2016 The sponsored walk on May 8th to raise funds for the re-development of the Church draws closer and we are still looking for more volunteers to take part. The Walk is organized by the Rotary Club along the Nidderdale Way starting at Ripley Castle.  There are various lengths of walk to suit all levels of fitness or absence thereof (choose from 5 mile, 10 mile, 20 miles or a short assisted walk) and you can do whichever you feel you can manage.   Walkers will be responsible for getting their own sponsors and for collecting sponsorship money, which can be Gift-added.  It promises to be a great family day-out and is well organized by the Rotary Club. For more details please see the website at www.nidderdalewalk.com If you can take part please contact Simon Gartside who can provide sponsorship forms and a poster with more details.   There is a registration process at the website, and a small fee for entering -  Simon will register for you if you wish, and the entrance fee will be covered.  A Just Giving website is being set up for those who prefer to collect money this way. If you have any questions or queries please contact Simon. NOTE - LAST CHANCE: Last day for registering for the Walk is Sunday May 1st, if you want to register and have difficulties please contact Simon Gartside, who can register for you, and cover the cost.
