FROM FR TIM
SOLEMNITY OF THE MOST HOLY REDEEMER.
TODAY WE CELEBRATE THE SOLEMNITY OF THE MOST HOLY REDEEMER.
A VERY HAPPY FEAST DAY FROM THE REDEMPTORIST COMMUNITY.
Please note that while we usually make an appeal for the education of our students on this day, Fr Provincial has asked that we try to raise some support for the dire circumstances in which our confreres in Zimbabwe now find themselves, particularly with regard to having enough energy to keep the houses operational.
We wish the staff and pupils of all our schools a very enjoyable summer holiday and thank them for all the hard work and effort they have put into the past academic year. A special word of thanks to some long-serving teachers who are retiring.
Please remember that this is the last week for the 7.00am Mass: it will resume five weeks later at the beginning of the new term on 2 September
Deacon Gergely Juhasz:
We welcome Deacon Greg to the 6.00pm Mass today. There will be an informal reception afterwards in the Fisher-More Hall.
From Deacon Greg:
I would like to thank you for all the overwhelming acts of kindness and love, cards, gifts, support, care, practical help and prayers at the occasion of my diaconal ordination. I am very grateful and feel privileged for belonging to this parish and I am looking forward to serve you as a deacon.
Little Church and Children’s Liturgy:
It is a celebration of the Liturgy of the Word for children aged 3-11 years.
Parents may attend for the first 2/3 sessions to help their children settle into the group.
Any parent wishing to attend the group regularly, apart from if they are attending solely to assist their child who has a disability, must become a leader or a designated helper and apply for DBS clearance in accordance with the Archdiocesan Safeguarding procedures.
These procedures have been set by the Archdiocese for the protection and safety of the children.
J&P Youth Group Appeal
The J&P youth group are collecting NAPPIES (all sizes) BABY WIPES and BOXES of CEREAL on behalf of NUGENT for families who will be struggling over the summer holidays. Children on free meals can miss out as families who are struggling often have to choose to buy nappies or food. Please leave in the barrels at the back of church if you can help.
A huge thank you for all of the support, there are less than 100 tiles still to be sold. There will be no sales today after Mass but tiles will be available to buy from the Monastery reception all week and after all Masses next weekend. Click here to read the background to this appeal
Please note there will be NO QUIZ NIGHT in August. It will resume in September.

The collated parish SYNOD responses have been submitted to the Archdiocese. Thank you to all those who submitted responses.
Hope University is analysing all the data for the SYNOD working party. The working party comprises the SYNOD Moderators (Fr Philip Inch, Fr Matthew Nunes), Mrs Maureen Knight, (Pastoral Formation) Mrs Debbie Reynolds (SFX pastoral worker), Sr Rachel Duffy FCJ, (religious) Miss Kate Wilkinson (school chaplain), Fr Mark Beattie, Fr Stephen Pritchard and Fr Dominic Curran (Parish Priests).
The working party will meet from the 15th-17th August under the guidance of Fr Eamonn from the Limerick Diocese. Fr Peter McGrail will present the data from the listening process and after a period of discernment, it is hoped themes will emerge which will indicate the way forward.
The SYNOD members will be presented with the these at the September SYNOD 2020 gatherings, and presented to the Archdiocese in October on ‘SYNOD Sunday’. There will then be a further listening process.
It is asked that we pray for the SYNOD journey and especially for the meeting of the working party that takes places between the 15th to 17th August.
As we move towards the next phase of our Synod journey a series of talks that will help us to better understand some of the pressing concerns of the Church has been announced.
The first talk “The Quiet Revolution of Pope Francis: A Synodal Catholic Church by Fr Gerry O'Hanlon SJ will take place on Monday 7 October.
An optional night prayer follows at 9.00pm. Each talk includes time for questions
All are welcome. Please encourage others to attend what promises to be an inspirational and enriching series.

Brother James - Sponsored Cycle
From Brother James chaplain and teacher at SFX, you may also see him in the 6pm music group. Please support him if you can.
"This year I'm not doing a multi-day sponsored cycle, rather a one-day challenge of an ecumenical nature!
On Aug. 4th, I'm doing a 100 mile sponsored cycle on the 2012 Olympic Road Race route: the Prudential Ride London-Surrey 100 Sportive a few hours before the world's top professional riders race on a very similar circuit. I will be part of a team raising money for The Salvation Army (#TeamSally). In my case, I'll be riding for their mission in Rhyl, N. Wales, which is led by a musician friend of mine, Major Chris Davidson. I will be looking to complete the ride in between 6hrs-6hrs30, which for an amateur rider of my "profile" would be good going. Any donations would be very gratefully received. God bless. 🙏😇🚴♂
Here's the link for donating:
"The Salvation Army provide unconditional friendship, support and very practical help to people in crisis and need and work with children, older people, homeless people, all adult victims of modern slavery and those dealing with drug and/or alcohol addiction.""
Marriage Matters Reflections for this week
A Reflection from Marriage Matters (www.twoinoneflesh.org.uk) for this Sunday
Please note in most churches today is the Sixteenth Sunday in Ordinary time. However, Redemptorists the world over celebrate their titualar feast 'The Solemnity of the Most Holy Redeemer' on the third Sunday of July.
Sixteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time (Genesis 18:1-10; Colossians 1:24-28; Luke 10:38-42)
Choosing ‘the better part’ is listening
The Gospel relates the different ways Martha and Mary behaved. We too can fall into such patterns of behaviour. It’s human nature to “worry and fret over so many things”. Today’s Scripture calls us to really listen, then, like Mary, we can choose “the better part”. Let us recommit today to deepening our level of listening in our marriage.

Bishop Baron’s homily for the 16th Sunday of Ordinary time
Here is my homily for this Sunday. Although the little story of Martha and Mary has been interpreted as a parable on the “active” and “contemplative” life, it can be read as Christ's invitation to all people to partake in his inner circle of discipleship. https://t.co/R2UFzIQJo6— Bishop Robert Barron (@BishopBarron) July 17, 2019
