EXPOSITION OF THE BLESSED SACRAMENT ON SATURDAYS DURING LENT

posted 20 Feb 2015, 06:10 by Susan Weaver


During Lent the Blessed Sacrament will be reposed at 11.20am, so that we can use the church meeting room from 11.30am.  This gives everyone more options on Saturday mornings between 10 am and 12.30 pm: Mass/ Adoration/ coffee in the hall/ Lent course.

 

CAFOD Lent Fast Day, Friday, 27th February

posted 20 Feb 2015, 06:08 by Susan Weaver

Please help us raise money to lift the world’s poorest people out of poverty.  This year every £1 you donate will be matched by the UK Government, meaning your giving will have double the impact.  An appeal will be made this Sunday on behalf of CAFOD, and your Fast Day envelopes given out.

 Sunday, 1st March:  Your Fast Day envelopes will be collected this day, and there will also be  a coffee morning in the church hall after both morning Masses.  Money raised from this will be added to the Fast Day Appeal.  If you can bake some cakes/biscuits for us to sell on the cake stall we would be most grateful.

“This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you.” 

John 15:12

MASS INTENTIONS AND STIPENDS

posted 13 Feb 2015, 04:54 by Susan Weaver

It is not always possible to celebrate your Mass on the day that you request.  Father John may be away; the day you would like has already been allocated; or a funeral may mean that your Mass has to be rearranged.  If you asked for a specific date and your Mass isn’t celebrated on that day please keep looking at the newsletter for the day you have been given (it is not always possible to inform you of a change in day as we might not know who booked the Mass).

 People often ask how much is it to have a Mass said?  The suggested donation, recommended by the diocese is £10.00.  It is usual for your Mass Stipend to be given when you book your Mass, this can be put in the Mass Offering envelope, or if you have booked it over the phone given to one of the Clergy, but please put it in an envelope stating what it is for.  Thank-you.
