COURSE ON THE CATHOLIC FAITH

We are starting a new discussion based course, based on the DVD series “Catholicism” by Fr Robert Barron.

The course is open to all and will be held in the St Thomas Aquinas Meeting Room from 8 pm – 9.30 pm on Thursdays in June and July.

You do not need to commit to the whole course and are free to ‘dip in;’ and ‘out’.

A list of the topics covered will be made available nearer the time.

 

SECOND COLLECTION next weekend Priests Training Fund

 

BAPTISM PREPARATION 8 pm Thursday St Thomas Aquinas Meeting Room

 

BAPTISM HELPERS NEEDED! Could you help on Sunday afternoons? We have a small team of helpers who assist at Baptisms on a rota basis. If you would like to welcome families, help with Baptism preparation, set up the Church and more, then please come to a meeting at 3 pm Saturday 10th May, St Thomas Aquinas Meeting Room.

 

THANK YOU Fr Prince and I are very grateful for your many cards, gifts and Easter greetings. Your kindness and generosity towards us both is greatly appreciated.

May God Bless you all

This Holy Eastertide.

 

TODAY’s COLLECTION at Mass is your annual Easter gift to your priests, Fr Prince and Fr Christopher.

 

DIARY SIGNING Easter Vigil/Easter Sunday

Due to the variation in Mass times and recognising that people may be away on holiday, diaries will not be signed on Easter Sunday. It will be assumed that everyone will be at Mass.

 

WORK AID ST JOSEPH THE WORKER 1st MAY

To mark this important feast we would like to support a charity called Workaid which takes all sorts of old tools and restores them before sending them out to developing countries.

The communities in Zambia that we support through ARIBA have benefitted from these tools not least St Joseph The Worker Carpentry Workshop in Limulunga.

Carpentry, gardening, plumbing or electrical items, such as sewing machines and typewriters, can all be donated. The small garage with the brown door at the back of the presbytery will be open on the weekends of:

26th/27th April and  3rd/4th May

for you to ‘drop off’ any items you are able to donate. Small items can also be left in the Sacristy, at All Saints Church, before each Mass on 27th April and 4th May.

 

PLANNING A PARISH BBQ We hope to have a parish BBQ on Saturday 28th June. However, we need help organising it! If you can help please come to a meeting at 8 pm Monday 28th April in St Thomas Aquinas Meeting Room.

A MESSAGE FROM AID TO THE CHURCH IN NEED

During an appeal, people are moved by the suffering of our persecuted fellow Christians and often think, ‘I’d love to do something more to help.’ If this applies to you, why not consider offering to be your Parish Representative? In whatever way suits them best, Parish Reps try to keep interest in the mission of ACN alive in their parish. If you would like to know more, please contact Patricia Hutton, Aid to the Church in Need, 12-14 Benhill Ave, Sutton, SM1 4DA or you could ring Heather Ward on 01773 599982.
