 THE POPE SPEAKS:

(From his letter on the Call to Holiness in today’s World)

To be holy does not require being a bishop, a priest or a religious. We are frequently tempted to think that holiness is only for those who can withdraw from ordinary affairs to spend much time in prayer. That is not the case. We are all called to be holy by living our lives with love and by bearing witness in everything we do, wherever we find ourselves. Are you called to the consecrated life? Be holy by living out your commitment with joy. Are you married? Be holy by loving and caring for your husband or wife, as Christ does for the Church. Do you work for a living? Be holy by labouring with integrity and skill in the service of your brothers and sisters. Are you a parent or grandparent? Be holy by patiently teaching the little ones how to follow Jesus. Are you in a position of authority? Be holy by working for the common good and renouncing personal gain.

The bin for your bags will reappear this week, and Fr Colin would be very grateful to any one who could undertake to deliver them regularly to the Project.

There is a silver box at the back of church just waiting for your, your family’s or neighbours’ recycled or re-gifted items which will be used as hamper items,  tombola and raffle prizes or stall items.

Booking Masses: We have found – and bought –  a  2018 Diary, so if you want to book Masses for next year, see Fr Colin.

If you ask us to say Mass for someone, could you tell us whether that person is living or deceased, and whether it’s an anniversary or not. Thank you.

Mass Intentions: Some people have asked how much they should give; it’s up to your generosity, but the idea is that it should keep a priest for a day – so maybe what it costs to keep you for a day!

NEWSPAPER ALERT!  Sales of our excellent diocesan newspaper have slumped since January – hardly any copies are being bought.  It is easily one of the best diocesan papers in the UK but unless people start buying it again then next month we will sadly have to cancel our order.  

Refreshments after the 10am Mass

 During the summer holidays coffee and tea in the Community Room will not be provided after Mass from Sunday 29th July; starting again on Sunday 2nd September.

The Community Room will be open after Mass for those who want to catch up with friends.

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED

At present providing coffee and tea after Mass on Sundays is dependent on a few volunteers. We are looking for more volunteers to join the rota and serve refreshments after the 10.00am Mass. Advice, training and support will be given to new starters. If you are able to help please put you name and contact details on the list in the Community Room and one of the current team will be in touch with you .Thank you so much.

 Farewell to Fr Dominic: at the end of this month Fr Dominic will be leaving us to join the Priory in Cambridge. We thank him for all the work he has done in the Parish as well as his work as Student Chaplain. One way of saying goodbye to him will be to come to the PARISH BARBECUE next Sunday from 11.30 a.m. If you’d like to come, please put your name and the number of people who’ll be with you on the clipboard in the inner porch.
