Newsletter 10th November 2013

REMEMBRANCE SUNDAY At all Masses this weekend we remember all those who have died in war and conflict.  Before the 11 am Mass, at All Saints, we will keep the two minute silence as we remember them and pray for the repose of their souls. Requiescat in pace.

CONFIRMATIONS 2014 The Parish Office has sent out a “Sacrament of Confirmation Application Form” by email to all those who put their name down on the lists at the back of Church.
However, we do not have email addresses for everyone on the list and some that we have sent have ‘bounced back’.
If you have not received a form, via email, can you please call in to the Parish Office and collect one. 

EXTRA MASS on SATURDAYS 9.30 am St Thomas Aquinas Church Please note this is not a Mass of Sunday but ‘Mass of the Day’.

WORD and COMMUNION at ALL SAINTS on WEDNESDAYS We are very grateful to all those who have led Word and Communion Services when there has been no Priest available to celebrate Mass.  This has been especially true at All Saints on Wednesdays.
Now that there is a regular Mass in the Parish on Wednesdays at St Thomas Aquinas, at the same time, it only seems right to suspend Word and Communion unless Mass cannot be celebrated in the Parish on a given day.
