As we prepare for our second public exam series at St Richard Reynolds Catholic College we are asking for your help to ensure all our students get the best possible chance of success and are looking for volunteer scribes who are able to commit to the exam period of the 15th May– 16th June (you will not be required during half term 27th—31st May).
The Collection taken at Easer is your offering to the clergy of the Parish and together with the Christmas offerings, Mass stipends and Stole Fees make up an annual amount which is then transferred to the Parish Priest on monthly instalments with income tax and NI contribution deducted. Over recent years the annual total has fallen short of the recommended amount allowed by the diocese so your generosity this Easter will be greatly appreciated.
After Easter the Parish will be hosting a series of talks on ‘Teenagers: human formation, faith formation, social media and the internet’.
The evenings will take place on Monday 29th April, Monday 13th May and Monday 20th May, and follow a similar format with tea and coffee at 7.00pm, talk starting at 7.30pm and followed by questions. All sessions will end at 9.00pm.
The three talks are:
Monday 29th April - Dan Wright, Headmaster of the London Oratory School.
‘Kevin and Perry do Jesus’ Teenage boys, human and faith development
The Parish is looking for both Readers and Eucharistic Ministers for Saturday evening 6:30pm, Sunday 8:30am and Sunday 6:30pm Masses. If you would like to serve the Parish in these ministries please contact either Paddy Walsh or Fr Peter.
You may not be in a position to support our social events but please remember the Black Box for your alms.
Envelopes are provided at the back of the church.
Thank you for your generosity.
One day of Prayer for Survivors of Abuse on Friday 12 April 2019
In February 2016, Pope Francis asked each Bishops’ Conference to establish a Day of Prayer for Survivors of Abuse. In response, the Bishops of England and Wales designated the Friday of the Fifth Week of Lent to be observed as this Day of Prayer. This year, therefore, the Day of Prayer is Friday 12 April.
