MESSAGE FROM GREAT MISSENDEN
Fr Wayne Coughlin would like to extend his sincere appreciation to those people who were able to join him in Great Missenden for the Divine Mercy celebrations and subsequently for all the positive comments he has received.

He is also very thankful to those people who held the day in prayer including our own Divine Mercy Group who were very supportive.

Having commissioned icons of St John XXIII and St John Paul II he has suggested that these might be loaned to our Parish in order that we might share in these wonderful devotional items.

Therefore over the coming weeks these will be on display in both our churches on a rotating basis.

 

FIRST HOLY COMMUNION Children from St Thomas Aquinas School will be making their first Holy Communion on Saturday 17th May at All Saints Church. Due to the large number this year there will be two Masses one at 10am and the other at 12.30pm. Please pray for our children at this important stage in their journey of faith. 

 

With every blessing for the week ahead

Father Christopher Perry
