Announcements for Sunday, September 21, 2014

– There will be a meeting of the Catholic Forum on Tuesday Sept. 30th, this time at St. Paul Gymnas. The topic (in Norwegian) is “What is a Catholic school” St. Paul primary and secondary schools in Bergen” by principle Ronny  MIchelsen, and Petter Gjessing, academic coordinator and associate principle. The program will begin with a mass in St. Sunniva chapel at the high school at 7 p.m., followed by a lecture and guided tour of the school.

– The lock on the gate to the crypt will be changed on Monday Sept. 22nd.  Users of the crypt can turn in their old key in exchange for a new one in the church office during opening hours. Anyone who receives a key must sign a document certifying that they are familiar with the rules of use of the crypt, and must also see to it that the group they are responsible for leaves the crypt clean after each use.

– Next Sunday, Sept. 28th, is Caritas Sunday. The church collection will go to the work of Caritas both at home and abroad. The profits from church coffee will also be given to Caritas Norway. Welcome!

– This weekend an extra collection will be taken up at the church exits after each mass for the new organ.

– The Norwegian national Catholic youth organization (NUK) is arranging leadership training from October 17.-19. at Mariaholm. One of the main goals of the courses is to equip young people to participate in parish life as leaders in activities for youth and children, and to serve as counsellors at children’s and youth retreats both in the parish and national. The courses are recognized by Bishop Bernt Eidsvig, and it is desirable that youth take as many courses as possible. The courses are designed for young people who have been confirmed.
