THE POPE SPEAKS:
(Pope Francis on The Joy of the Gospel)
At a time when we most need a missionary dynamism which will bring salt and light to the world, many lay people fear that they may be asked to undertake some apostolic work and they seek to avoid any responsibility that may take away from their free time. For example, it has become very difficult today to find trained parish catechists willing to persevere in this work for some years. Something similar is also happening with priests who are obsessed with protecting their free time. This is frequently due to the fact that people feel an overbearing need to guard their personal freedom, as though the task of evangelization was a dangerous poison rather than a joyful response to God’s love.
Rotas: If any Reader, Eucharistic Minister or Counter still requires a copy of the new rota, they’re available at the notice board in the sacristy. Just help yourself.
STAINED GLASS APPEAL:

A further £100 has been sent to Aid to the Church in Need.
Collections: This weekend: Communications; 3-4 June: SVP; 10-11 June: Lay Training Fund.
The winner of the April 50/50 draw was: L.LOCKHART; Congratulations! You have a chance to be the winner of the May draw – if you buy a ticket.

Old five pound notes go out of general circulation this weekend so you need to exchange them or get rid of them; you can still put them in the collection for a few weeks more.

Kurdish Life Aid: Baby and children’s clothing needed by the 3 million Yazidi and Syrian orphans in camps in Northern Iraq. See the labelled box in the outer porch. Many thanks.
Bags for the Refugee Project: Many thanks to those who still supply us with shopping bags; the refugee project, based in the Deaf Centre in Summerhill Grove, uses them to distribute goods to destitute asylum seekers. 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.
Thank you for your generosity.
