Newsletter: 21st April 2013

GOING INTO HOSPITAL?
By all means let the Bletchley clergy know but only after you have let the hospital chaplaincy know, as they have pastoral responsibility for patients (and staff) at MK General.  Fr James Cassidy and Fr Allan Jones do a fantastic job as priest chaplains, along with many lay visitors, helpers and Eucharistic Ministers who ensure all Catholics in MK Hospital receive Holy Communion each Sunday along with other visits inbetween.
Don’t be left out, please ring 243700 (the Chaplaincy number) to ensure you are ministered to whilst in hospital.

PHOENIX YOUTH GROUP
For school year 8’s and over.  Meet Tuesday, 7 – 9 pm at St Thomas Aquinas Meeting Room.  For fun and friendship ~ come along ~ all welcome.

BAPTISM PREPARATION
Do you have a baby for baptism?  Congratulations!  Come along on Thursday, 8 – 9 pm at St Thomas Aquinas Meeting Room to find out our procedures.  Remember, we expect you to be committed Catholics before you present your child for baptism and that you attend Mass regularly.  Also, we require proof of Catholic baptism of at least one parent, so you may need to obtain a copy of your own baptismal certificate if you don’t currently have one.

PARKING AT ALL SAINTS
A parishioner has asked me to put in the newsletter that some parking bays are being left empty because people park in such a way that it is impossible to access them.
Our car park is too small as it is, so this does not seem sensible.  As a rule of thumb, please fill up the marked bays first, preferably using behind the church first. Thank You.
