The second collection will be for the Catholic Agency for the support of Evangelization. The money collected provides the bishops of England and Wales with resources for Home Mission, the spread of the gospel in our own country. It enables a breadth of work to be done in support of parish evangelization.
Help needed in our Church
We are looking for more parishioners to help with various tasks that help the parish run smoothly. In particular, the counting team and church cleaners would like more help.
If you have a couple of hours to spare to volunteer to help in these roles, or any of the others behind the scenes, please speak to Fr. Hans or Thereza Barker.
You can ask the Parish Priest to offer Mass for a specific intention of yours. It could be for: yourself or your family, a friend in need, a deceased relative, our community or the wider world or a private intention. If you indicate a preferred date, the Mass will be offered on or about that preferred date. If you would like to be sure of a specific date, please speak to Fr. Hans. Simply fill in a Mass Offering envelope and either give it to Fr. Hans or place it in the collection box.
Care Of The Sick
If you would like a sick member of your family, or a friend, to be visited and the sacraments administered please let Fr. Hans know. If you know of someone who would like to attend Mass but is unable to get here please let us know and a lift may be able to be organised.
