THE PAST WEEK: Archbishop Malcolm was given a royal welcome at both our schools last Thursday. We have some treasured photos of children wearing his mitre and holding his crozier. Certainly the children are clear about one thing: that the Bishop’s job is to be like Jesus, a good shepherd of the flock, who is there not to rule but to serve the people. Later in the day many joined the Archbishop for the Holy Hour at St Anthony’s. It will be good if we can prepare for the Eucharistic Congress by having Holy Hours in each parish and a devotional service for each school. Watch this space!

FORWARD PLANNING: Last week I highlighted the fact that in a couple of weeks we will be stretched to the limit since most of the community will be going to Perth for a meeting with our Redemptorist General and his Co-ordinator for the Redemptorist Conference of Europe. No one has objected to my proposal that we settle for a 7.00am Mass at Bishop Eton and a noon Mass at St Mary’s during that week. It is a measure of just how things are beginning to unravel that during the past week Fr Burns had to go to Clapham to ensure that they could have their weekday Masses. Furthermore, it is no secret that some of the confrères in our community are encountering new health challenges. With all this in mind, I simply ask you to revisit my ‘open letter’ and continue to discuss and pray with one another about the future.

The Funeral of James Brown RIP will take place on Friday 20 April at 12.00 noon. His body will be received into the church at 6.45pm on Thursday evening.

The Funeral of James Dunn RIP will take place on Friday 20 April at 2.00pm.

Adoremus National Eucharistic Pilgrimage & Congress 2018

Eucharist is… pilgrimage

The culmination of a pilgrimage may be a Mass, but the source and summit of any week as a Catholic Christian is the Eucharist.We don’t have to journey with passport and suitcase to find the healing that we need, the healing of forgiveness and inclusion in God’s family.We just have to journey to church for Mass. 


Please check out all the posters in the porch for extra events, courses and information. Also check out the parish website for many more links.
