Praying with the Pope in August 2019

That families, through their life of prayer and love, become even more clearly “schools of human development”.

Look at www.ThePopeVideo.org for more information.


Today
Is the 20th Sunday of Ordinary Time.   The gospel Jesus reminds us that belief in him can sometimes divide a family.

 

Fr Tim is away again this weekend and he is grateful to Fr Peter Brook from Preston, who will celebrate the weekend Masses.    There will be no Holy Hour or Benediction this Saturday.

 

This Stonyhurst Literary and Film Festival concludes this Saturday.

 

Fr Tim away again
Fr Tim is back on Monday, so Masses this week are back to their usual times.

 

Collections open to the public
The Stonyhurst collections and museum is open to the public every Wednesday during August.   Book a place on the Stonyhurst website.

Visiting those who can’t get to Mass
On Friday Fr Tim will be visiting those who can’t get to Mass on a Sunday.   If you know of someone who would be glad of such a visit, please let him know.

 

Stonyhurst Food Festival
Next Weekend Stonyhurst is hosting its annual Food Festival.   This should not affect those coming to Mass in St Peter’s, but the campus will be busy next weekend.

 

Holy Hour and Benediction
This resumes next Saturday.   There is a Holy Hour from 4.30pm until Benediction at 5.15pm.   Confessions are available during the Holy Hour.

 

Next Sunday
Is the 21st Sunday of Ordinary Time.   In the Gospel, Jesus warns us about unconsciously taking on the standards of the world around us.

 

The Collection
The collection last week came to:

Vigil Mass

9.30am

Total

£ 122.70

£ 63.52

£ 186.22

Some people prefer to make their contribution by Standing Order.   These came to an average of £100 per week for the month of July.

Thanks for your generosity

 

Heating in St Peter’s
Work has begun to reconnect St Peter’s church to the college heating system.   This will mean that for next winter we will have two ways of heating the church.   We hope it will result in the church being warmer.   However, hold on to your winter coats for the time being!

 

Margaret Clitherow Book Launch
Authors John and Wendy Rayne-Davis are launching a new book on one of our local saints: St Margaret Clitherow.   The book launch takes place in Theodore House, on Friday 30th August at 7.30pm The evening’s presentation will give an overview of the various themes covered in the book which give a fresh context to Margaret’s life.
Questions and refreshments will be part of the evening.

 

Deanery Bar-B-Que
A date for your diary:   The parishes of the deanery hope to gather at Lee House in Thornley for a Bar-B-Que on the afternoon of Saturday 7th September.   Keep the date free in your diary.

 

Food Bank
The Blackburn foodbank has asked me to pass on to all parishioners their sincere thanks for items donated so far this.   We have collected over 1,000 Kg of food items that has provided 2,400 meals for needy people.   Remember, you can donate any long-life food items, cleaning materials and  personal hygiene items are also welcome.  More information is available at the back of the church.   Please keep on donating.   We make a huge difference to people in need.

 

Going into Hospital
If you are going into hospital, you must make it clear to the nurse that you wish to see the Catholic Chaplain; your details are no longer passed on automatically.
