Over the last month over 1000 letters have been sent out to those on the existing Parish Census List because from the end of June, under new regulations for storing personal information, permission needs to be sought from the individual concerned. The lists date back 15 years and as one would expect many have from the original list moved away, some died and others worship elsewhere. The Office has already received a large number of replies that will form the basis on a new up to date list.
The 22nd July Page will be the last edition until early September. For any announcements or notices, please see the noticeboard in the church porch.
Please note from 22nd July-2nd September 2018 due to the shortage of Supply Priests there will be no 6.30pm Mass on Saturday evenings.
Please see the notice board for weekday Mass times during this period which may also be affected.
In the Autumn St Margaret's will be running The Alpha Course. Please look out for more details on the website or in the newsletter.
If you would like to have your child baptised at St Margarets you will need to do the following:
- Meet Fr Peter after Sunday Mass to discuss your child's baptism.
- Contact the Parish Office to enrol on a baptism course.
- Attend a Baptism Preparation Course (consists of two sessions).
- Book a date for the Baptism with the Parish Office (open 8:00am to 1:00pm). T: 020 8892 3902 or email: email@example.com
Please note that any parent who wishes their child to receive First Holy Communion or teenager who would like to be Confirmed please collect a Mass Attendance Card from Fr Peter or Deacon Guido.
This is to collect all the bric-a-brac for our stall at the St Margaret's Fair from Teddington on the evening of Friday 6th July and deliver to Moormead park early (9.30am) on Saturday 7th July.
If you are able to help, please contact the parish office 020 8892 3902 or Jimmy Green on 07400 475 950.
Would you like to serve the local Catholic community in an important and strategic way, ensuring that our children benefit from an education that reflects a Catholic vision and ethos? St James's Catholic Primary School, Twickenham, has a vacancy for a Foundation Governor.
Last Tuesday Bishop John Wilson came to administer the Sacrament of Confirmation to nine young people of the Parish. They are now fully received into the Catholic Church.
May I thank the Catechists, Pat Keane, Deacon Guido, and Emma Westby and Sophia Swinford from St Mary’s University. It was good to see so many servers come to assist at Mass. May I also thank all those who arranged the flowers, prepared the Hall and served at the reception after Mass.
Lastly may I record my thanks to Bishop John Wilson for coming to Confirm the Parish Candidates and for his support of this parish
