Praying with the Pope in November 2018

In the service of peace:  that the language of love and dialogue may always prevail over the language of conflict.

They grow not old
As we that are left grow old.
Age shall not weary them,
Nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun,
And in the morning,
We will remember them.

      (Lawrence Binyon)

 

 

Today
Jesus teaches a lesson in generosity.   This helps us to reflect on the generosity of those who died in combat during the two world wars of the last century. 

 

Remembrance Sunday
Today is Remembrance Sunday.   The 9.30am Mass that day will be in St Peter’s and at 11am there will be an Ecumenical Service at the war memorial in the village.   This year marks the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I.   It seems that the need to pray for peace in the world is greater than ever!

 

Fr Frank Hull SJ RIP
Sadly Fr Frank died peacefully in his sleep last Sunday afternoon.  His Funeral takes place on Monday at St Wilfrid’s in Preston at 12.15pm.   May he rest in peace.

 

The BIG Quiz afternoon
Following a very successful Bingo organised by some of the students from Stonyhurst, there will be a Quiz Afternoon on Thursday, beginning at 2.00pm.   Tea and cakes will be served.   Admission free.   Come and enjoy an afternoon of fun.

 

Accounts
There is a leaflet at the back of the church outlining the parish’s financial position.   Please take a copy.   This will be discussed briefly at the AGM next Saturday.

 

Parish AGM and House warming party
After the Vigil Mass next Saturday, all parishioners are invited to Fr Tim’s new house.   There will be a brief AGM to inform parishioners of accounts and plans.   This will be followed by a shared supper (please bring a dish – and let Mary Bailey know what you would like to bring).  After supper there will be a social including a quiz.   I hope as many praishioners as possible can join in the fun.

 

St Stanislaus Kostka
His feast day is on Tuesday.   He is the patron saint of Jesuit novices.   Please pray for more vocation to the Society of Jesus.
