Deacon Gergely Juhasz:
The ceremony in the Cathedral last Sunday was a wonderful occasion as was the Pastoral Area Reception in the evening.
Now I would like to welcome Greg to our two parishes. Next Sunday he will be the Deacon at the 6.00pm Mass and there will be an informal reception afterwards in the Fisher-More Hall.
Summary of recent and forthcoming events:
We have enjoyed some blessed experiences in the last couple of weeks, including another very successful Garden Party, the Diaconate Ordination of Greg and the success of our Junior Justice and Peace Group. Now we are running into the final days of the academic year, with school Masses and assemblies, especially for the students and staff who are moving on to pastures new.
Finally, I am pleased to report that the health of our two new community members seems to be improving. Although Fr Martin Gay has had to have another short spell in hospital, his condition is stabilising. Fr Gabby Maguire has come through his debilitating infection but is still in hospital and will probably need a period of rehabilitation so that he can recover his strength.
Today at 3.00pm in the Cathedral Gergely Juhasz, one of our parishioners, will be ordained a Deacon by Archbishop Malcolm. We congratulate him and the others who will be ordained with him, as also his wife, Elisabeth and daughter, Johanna.
JUNIOR JUSTICE AND PEACE GROUP
Many congratulations to our Group for being nominated for a national Catholic award (million minutes) at last Wednesday’s ’Celebrating Young People Awards’ held at the Curzon Cinema in Soho.
The Group was represented by Jacob and Olivia (St Mary’s), and Patrick and Molly (Bishop Eton).
They had their photograph taken with Cardinal Vincent Nichols and it was a thoroughly enjoyable evening.
Huge congratulations again to Sarah McGeehan and her wonderful team, some of whom accompanied the youngsters to on their trip to London. This venture goes from strength to strength and I commend it to all our young people from Year 5 upwards.
The group was Highly Commended in the Dorothy Day category which is for fostering community and participation. Well done to them and thanks to those who run the group. A tweet follow from the organisers of the event
We extend our heartfelt thanks to our guest of honour @CardinalNichols, for his humbling and inspiring words to our guests and young people present. @RCWestminster @catholicew pic.twitter.com/8VGhV9H1vC— Million Minutes (@Million_Minutes) July 4, 2019
VOCATION PRAYER CARDS
Fr Richard Reid C.Ss.R has updated our Redemptorist Vocation Prayer Card and copies are available at the back of the church. Please join us in praying for a blessed future.

Next Sunday afternoon at 3.00pm in the Cathedral Gergely Juhasz will be ordained a Deacon by Archbishop Malcolm. I hope many of you will be able to join us for the occasion. There will be a Pastoral Area reception for him at 7.00pm that evening in St Mary’s Parish Centre. We will arrange our own parish reception on another day.
Speaking of initiatives, there is no doubt that Fr Michael Henesy’s initiative to organise this year’s Novena in preparation for the Feast of Our Lady of Perpetual Succour last Thursday was truly blessed. Once again I want to thank him and all those who worked alongside him for the meticulous care they took in preparing and presenting each evening.
To begin with it was a wonderful example of team ministry and we now have a better understanding of what it means to be “full of grace” and how important it is to be gracious to one another. I am keen to build on the blessings of this event and Fr Henesy has graciously agreed to look after next Wednesday’s Novena Devotions.
We do not plan to make radical changes but we do plan to try a new format over the next few Wednesdays and would welcome some feedback from you before making any permanent decisions
