STOP PRESS
On Saturday night there was a fire in the classroom underneath the chapel in St Joseph’s.   The classroom is a wreck, but fortunately the chapel escaped unscathed.   At the moment the building is a crime scene.   The 9.30am Mass on Sunday will be in St Peter’s.

 

 

Praying with the Pope in July 2024
For the pastoral care of the sick.
Let us pray that the sacrament of the anointing of the sick bestows the Lord’s strength on those who receive it and to their loved ones, and that it may become for everyone an ever more visible sign of compassion and hope.

This Sunday
Is the 16th Sunday of Ordinary Time.   In the gospel the 12 return from their mission.   However, plans for a rest are thwarted!

 

The Vigil Mass
We are expecting about 100 of the Stonyhurst Summer School students to attend the Vigil Mass on Saturday.

 

The 9.30am Mass in St Joseph’s
Bishop John Arnold came to confer the sacrament of Confirmation on 31 candidates from the Ribble Valley parishes at Langho a couple of weeks ago.   Most of these received their certificates at the St Augustine’s end of year Mass.   However, the 3 candidates who do not attend St Augustine’s will receive their certificates at the end of the 9.30am Mass at St Joseph’s this weekend.   Congratulations to them and their families.

Retreat at the CHC
This weekend the CHC is offering a retreat “Praying with St Francis of Assisi”.

 

Jesuits and Friends
The latest issue of this magazine is available at the back of the church.   Please help yourself.

 

The Parish AGM
Thanks to those who attended the Parish AGM last Sunday.   Sadly, the weather did not permit us to use the garden, but a good time was had by all.

 

Summer Holidays
All of our pupils are enjoying their summer break.   We pray for them that they use their time well.   While our boarders are away, we will continue to celebrate benediction at 5.15pm on a Saturday afternoon and the 11am Mass on a Sunday. 

 

Parish Visiting
Fr Tim hopes to visit the housebound during this week.   If you know of someone who would appreciate a visit, please let him know.

 

Event for the St Joseph’s school community
Current pupils, and recent past-pupils of St. Joseph’s and their parents are invited to a celebration of St Joseph’s RC Primary School on Wednesday 24th July, 7 to 8.30pm at Hurst Green Memorial Hall.
Join us for games, music, dancing, face painting and fun, for a positive celebration of our school community. Tea coffee, juice and snacks provided. Parents to stay, supervise and chat.

 

Coffee Stop
Takes place on Thursday from 1.30pm in the Bowling Green pavilion.   All welcome.

 

Wedding Blessings
Please pray for Michael Halsall and Rebecca Snee who will be celebrating the Sacrament of Marriage in our church during the week.

 

Next Sunday
Is the 17th Sunday of Ordinary Time.   In the gospel we have John’s account of the feeding of the 5,000.

 

St Ignatius Day celebrations
Is fast approaching.   We have invited parishioners from Liverpool, Manchester and Preston.   Fr Gallager, the Jesuit Provincial will celebrate Mass.   If you would like to come to the Bar-B-Que at Theodore House, you are most welcome but you must let Fr Tim know by Wednesday so that we can cater for the correct number of people.
The programme is as follows:
4.15pm   Tour of the collections
(This is now fully booked)
5.30pm   Mass in St Peter’s celebrated by Fr  
Provincial (all welcome)
6.30pm   Bar-B-Que in Theodore House
(you need to book for this).

 

Best kept Village
The Judges for this competition have been seen in the village over the past weeks.   They are likely to return again before the end of July.

 

New Sunday Missal
The translation that we use for the readings at Mass is changing in November.   A new Sunday missal with the correct translation is available from Redemptorist Publication.   You can order your own copy directly, but Cathy Poloczek is happy to order one for you.   Cost is £20.

 

St Joachim and St Anne
Their feast day falls on Friday.   They were the parents of Mary.   In many countries this is celebrated as “Grandparents Day”.   We can remember our own grandparents on this day.
