Praying with the Pope in November 2019
That the spirit of dialogue, encounter and reconciliation emerge in the Near East, where diverse religious communities share their lives together.

Today
Is the 32nd Sunday of Ordinary Time.    In the Gospel Jesus explains that our God is the God of the living and that there is a true hope of the resurrection.

 

Remembrance Sunday
Today is also Remembrance Sunday.   The 5.30pm Vigil Mass will be as normal in St Peter’s with SMH coming to this Mass.   The 9.30am Mass on Sunday will be in St Peter’s with the College attending.   The traditional Remembrance Service will be held on the village Green at 10.45am.   In the Remembrance Service the whole village community is united in its prayer of gratitude to those who have given their lives in defence of freedom.

 

November list of the dead
November is the month where we remember those who we have loved and died. It is a Catholic custom to inscribe their names in a book which is placed on the altar at each Mass celebrated during this month.   Please add the names of your loved ones to the list.   We commend their souls to the Lord.

 

Parish Pastoral Council
Meets on Tuesday in the Dashwood Room of Fr Tim’s house at 7pm.   If there is an item you wish to raise, please contact a member of the PPC.    One item on the agenda will be the recent letter from the bishop.

 

Tea on the Green
This social event is led by some students from Stonyhurst.   We gather at 1.15pm on Thursday in St Peter’s Club for tea, cakes and other activities.   All welcome

 

Next Sunday
Is the 33rd Sunday of Ordinary Time.   We are coming to the close of the church’s year.   The readings focus on the last times and what will happen once this world passes away.

Welcome into the church
We welcome Cain Coop Rushworth into the church.   He will be baptised next Sunday.   Please pray for him and for his family.

 

They shall not grow old

They shall 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.

As the stars that shall be bright when we are dust, 
Moving in marches upon the heavenly plain; 
As the stars that are starry in the time of our darkness, To the end, to the end, they remain.
