Welcome Message from Father Kevin Hooper

Week Commencing: Sunday 13th April 2014

Welcome to the web site of the Catholic Parish of Kenilworth, served by the Churches of St Augustine & St Francis of Assisi.

THIS SUNDAY
Palm Sunday  Please take a palm cross into church for the blessing.
We begin Holy Week, the most sacred week of the year and in particular the Easter Triduum from the Mass of the Lord’s Supper to Easter Day.
In a very real sense the spiritual health of any parish can be seen in the way this unique time of the year is kept. Please endeavour to be with Our Lord in his Passion so then to share in the joy of his Resurrection.
There will be a retiring collection for the ‘Year of Faith’ books

Yellow coloured Holy Week and Easter service sheets are available to take away.
-   Monday   7.30 pm Reconciliation service – 4 priests at St Francis’ Church.
-   Wednesday  9am Mass at St Austin’s. 11.30 am Chrism Mass at the Cathedral. 

EUCHARISTIC MINISTERS and READERS
Please will Eucharistic Ministers and Readers volunteer their services for the Easter Triduum and sign up on the sheet in the narthex.

CONGRATULATIONS
Pope Francis has recently nominated Professor Margaret Archer as the President of the Pontifical Academy of Social Sciences. As a Founder Member this body, Margaret has been involved in its work for many years. We congratulate her and assure her of our prayers. Documents of the Academy may be accessed on www.pass.va 

SIMPLY SIMPLE PRAYER GROUP
The next meeting will be on Tuesday 15 April, at 7.30pm at Bullimore Grove. Following Pope Francis’ advice in the “Walk with me” Lenten Reading for April 4th,    “we will take a step forward in love and pray for  a person who irritates us”,  for their joy in the Easter Season. Please join us, if you can. Thank you for Prayer Box requests, these are always included at the meeting, or e-mail, This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
