DIOCESAN PROCESSION OF FAITH 2012
1.30pm … Sunday 30th September

Transport is being organised, with a fare of £10. per person, and should you wish to process will you please add your name and contact details to the list at back of church.
Further details may be obtained from Tess on 01908 378558.

DIVINE MERCY DEVOTIONS 3 pm Sunday 5th August at St Thomas Aquinas Church.  All most welcome.

SHARING GOOD PRACTICE
We encourage everybody to receive Holy Communion under both kinds, as instructed by Our Lord at the Last Supper.  “Take and eat … Take and drink”.  The fullness of the symbolism is achieved if you receive under both kinds, Jesus in the form of bread and Jesus in the form of wine.
Please kindly remember that the host is to be consumed immediately, in front of the Minister.
If you cannot receive from the chalice (for medical reasons etc.) we understand.  However, it is good practice for those who choose not to partake of the chalice to make a gesture of reverence – such as a bow – as you pass the Minister:  remember, it is Jesus you are passing by.
