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.

THE XAVERIAN MISSIONARIES IN THE WORLD

posted 21 Nov 2019, 05:28 by Susan Weaver   [ updated 5 Dec 2019, 05:53 ]

St Guido Maria Conforti, Archbishop of Ravenna, Bishop of Parma, Founder of the Xaverian Missionaries (1895) wanted his first missionaries to continue the work of St Francis Xavier, the patron saint of the Missionary Family,
in China at whose doors Xavier had died. 
Therefore, China was chosen as the first mission of the Xaverians, but all the missionaries were expelled from the country in 1954. The Xaverians then accepted the invitation of the
Popes to announce the Gospel in many other nations.
  Today the Xaverians (who are roughly 692 in number) work in 22 countries. 

 This weekend we offer a very warm welcome to Fr Archie Casey SX who will be making the Annual Mission Appeal in our Parish.  Fr Archie has worked in Bangladesh and the Philippines.

Many thanks for supporting the Missions.  Through your kindness and generosity £895.15 was raised.  With Gift Aid to be added on part of that donation.
