Praying with the Pope in October 2018

That consecrated religious men and women may bestir themselves, and be present amongst the poor, the marginalised, and those who have no voice.  

Look at www.ThePopeVideo.org for more information.

 

Today’s Mass
Jesus challenges a rich young man, who he loves, to reevaluate his priorities.

 

First Holy Communion preparation
Begins today at 8.45am in St Joseph’s.   Let’s pray for our children setting out on their journey towards receiving the Eucharist.

 

Bishop St Oscar Romero
Of El Salvador will be canonised by Pope Francis in Rome today, during the world synod of bishops on youth.  We can now pray, through his intercession for justice in South and Central America.
There is a relic of the new saint on display in St Peter’s for those who would like to venerate it.

Rosary during October

SMH Mass
There is no Mass at SMH this Thursday as the pupils are on half term.

 

CRB Checks for our volunteers.
Some volunteers in the parish require a CRB check:
A team from the Diocese will be at St Mary’s, Langho, on next Saturday to conduct these checks.   If you need to be checked, please collect an explanitory letter from Fr Tim.   We can help with transport on the day .   If you can’t make next Saturday, please talk to Naill or Fr Tim for an alternative strategy.   Its important that all these checks are in place.

 

Benediction during half-term
Next Saturday there will not be any pupils, but there will still be a holy hour at 4.30pm, with a simple Benediction at 5.15pm
