Please note these Mass times as they are slightly different from the usual.

C.R.B. CHECKS.  Our thanks to Marie Day who is currently doing sterling work renewing everyone’s CRB checks.  It is a huge task.  Thanks too, to everyone involved for their patience and understanding.  No need to elaborate upon how the church has to be a beacon of good practice in this important area.

EVERY BLESSING to Brenda Herlihy who has retired from Bishop Parker School after many, many years of faithful service to our parish youngsters in the school and nursery.  We wish Brenda a happy, well-deserved retirement.

Rev MICHAEL PATEY is to be ordained priest at Northampton Cathedral on 8th September at 12 noon.  Michael was formerly a Maths teacher at St Paul’s School and did a placement with us here in Bletchley in 2008.  He has now completed his seven years of study and discernment;  we wish him every blessing for his future ministry as a priest in our diocese.

OLYMPIC GOLD.  Our parish joins the rest of Bletchley town as we congratulate our local boy, Greg Rutherford, on his Olympic Gold Medal in the men’s long jump last week.  Well done on his magnificent achievement.
