Please pray for the repose of the soul of Stephen Swietlik, who died this week. He attended Mass here regularly until he had to go into a care home some years ago. May he rest in peace.
THANK YOU for the £238 donated to CAFOD last week.
Only four families (8 children) enrolled for RE lessons. Has the younger element of our parish disappeared?
Next Sunday is World Mission Sunday and there will be a retiring collection to help fund the religious orders who try to spread the faith abroad.
The Vocations Director Fr Tony McGrath has sent us some new plastic prayer cards with a new prayer for priestly vocations. Please pick one up as you leave. Even if you only read it once that will be a prayer. The readings at Mass use various stories and examples to encourage us to persevere in prayer no matter how slow God is to respond. By now we must have all realised that the only response to our prayers in this matter seems to be ‘Not yet’.
During the month of October, we could maybe pray the rosary each day for world peace, asking Our Lady’s powerful intercession.
