CAFOD HARVEST FAST DAY - Friday, 5th October

 This weekend (29th/30th September) our parish CAFOD representatives Dee Ellidge and Frank Heyes will give a short appeal at the close of  Sunday Masses on behalf of CAFOD.  The CAFOD collection will take place next Sunday, 7th October; there is an envelope for you to use inside your newsletter, or at the back of the church. 

Family Fast Day Prayer:  Creator God, in love you give life.  In your generosity you create the gifts of the earth.  As daughters and sons of the same Father, may we learn to share the plentiful gifts of creation, especially with those most in need.  Give us open hands and loving hearts, so that we take less and give more.  We ask that all may benefit from your goodness, and share in the fullness of life you have promised.  Amen.

OUTSIDE THE CITY?

A screening will take place at The Venue Cinema BGU, Longdales Road, Lincoln LN1 3DY on Wednesday, 8th January at 7.30pm.  Tickets are £8.00 per adult.  The filmmaker, Nick Hamer, will be introducing the film and also doing a Q&A after the event.  The monks of Mount St Bernard Abbey are a community of 25 men, half of them over 80 years old.  This beautifully filmed documentary follows the monks as they move from dairy farming to brewing as they attempt to open the first Trappist brewery in the UK.  The stakes are high, if their historic counter-cultural lifestyle is to survive the venture must succeed.  Bishop Patrick is supporting the film and encourages you all to see it.  For tickets contact The Venue online: https://thevenuelincoln.cloudvenue.co.uk/outsidethecity or by phone: 01522 527347.
