Praying with the Pope in June 2019

That priests, through the modesty and humility of their lives, commit themselves actively to a sodality with those who are most poor.

Look at www.ThePopeVideo.org for more information.

 

Today
Is the feast Corpus Christi.   We rejoice in the gift to the Church of the Body and Blood of Christ, which we can receive every time we come to Mass.

 

First Communion Mass
The children from the parish will make their First Holy Communion today at the 11am Mass in St Peter’s.   There will still be Mass as usual at 9.30am in St Joseph’s, but hopefully, as many people as possible will make it to the 11am Mass to support our children.

 

Feast days during the week
Monday is the feast day of the Birthday of John the Baptist.   With Mary and Jesus, he is one of the saints for whom we celebrate their birthday.
Friday is the feast of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and on Saturday we celebrate the feast of St Peter and St Paul, but this year the celebration of that feast is transferred to the Sunday.

 

St Peter’s Guild Day
Takes place on Saturday.   All parishioners are warmly invited to the Mass in St Peter’s at 10.00am.

 

Next Sunday
Is the feast of St Peter and St Paul.   We thank God for these two heroes of the early church.

Next weekend the Stonyhurst pupils will be attending the 5.30pm Vigil Mass.

At the 11am Mass next Sunday the pupils from SMH will be making their first Holy Communion.   Please keep them in your prayers.

Thank you for your generosity.

 

Repository – New stock
The repository in St Peter’s has a new stock of 1st Holy Communion cards and gifts.   There is also a smaller selection outside the chapel in St Joseph’s.  


Gift Aid
At the AGM last Sunday it was noted that the figure we were able to claim back in gift aid fell slightly last year.   If you are a tax payer and are not already gift-aiding your contributions, please consider doing so.   We shall also encourage couples getting married here to gift aid their donation to the church.

 

APF – Red Boxes
Thanks to those who have handed in their boxes.   The total so far is £  377.47.    A brilliant result for such a small parish.   Well done.

 

Meeting for those involved in the Music Ministry
There is a meeting of the parishes in the deanery for those involved in the music ministry of our parishes on
Wednesday 3rd July at 7.30pm.   The meeting takes at place at St Mary’s, Langho.

 

31 day of St Ignatius
Delivers a thought to your inbox for every day during the month of July.   Please take a flyer.

 

St Ignatius Day celebrations
We are hosting the celebrations for St Ignatius day on Wednesday 31st July.   Parishioners from Liverpool, Preston and Manchester have been invited.   The programme is:
6.00pm and 6.30pm – tour of the museum
(you need to pre book for one of these tours)
7.00pm  Mass in St Peter’s
After Mass refreshments will be available in Theodore House.   I am hoping our parishioners will be on hand to welcome our guests.
 
Thanks
To everyone who participated in the Parish AGM.   There are some action points to take forward.   Despite the weather everyone seemed to enjoy themselves.

Thanks too to those who organised the Deanery Hope in the Future walk along the Tolkien trail.
 
Parish Accounts for 2018
A summary of the parish accounts for last year is available at the back of the church.   If you have not done so already, please take a copy.
