Welcome Message from Father Kevin Hooper
Week Commencing: Sunday 20th July 2014

Father Kevin HooperTHIS SUNDAY: VISIT OF BISHOP GRATIAN MUNDADAN
We welcome Bishop Gratian, Bishop Emeritus of Bijnor in India, who will preside and preach at all masses this Sunday. Many of you will remember him from his previous visits and some parishioners support the work of the Ashadeep Children’s Centre in the Diocese. We will have a second collection on Sunday to support that continuing work in that Diocese.

ORDINATIONS TO THE PERMANENT DIACONATE
This Sunday, six men will be ordained for service as Permanent Deacons in our Archdiocese. We rejoice and give thanks to God for this great blessing to the church. Please remember them and their families in your prayers. We pray too for our own Father David Bazen who accompanies them in their formation.

DAY FOR LIFE ‐ NEXT SUNDAY
Day for Life – the day in the Church’s year dedicated to celebrating the dignity of life will this year call upon young people in particular to protect and cherish life from conception to natural death. For more information visit: www.dayforlife.org There will be second collection in our parish to support this Day for Life. Proceeds of the collection will go to The Anscombe Bioethics Centre and other pro-life related activities supported by the Catholic Church in England and Wales. Explanation and prayer cards are available in each church.

SINCERE CONGRATULATIONS
On behalf of the whole parish, I offer our sincerest congratulations to our Member of Parliament, Mr. Jeremy Wright, who has recently been promoted to be the Attorney General. This is a significant honour and we are delighted to think that Mr. Wright is so often at mass here with his wife Yvonne and children Stephanie and Elliott.
We ask our Lord to bless their family life and Jeremy in his new responsibility.

For further news from the Parish, please consult the Pasrish Newsletter (see below).

With every blessing,

Father Kevin Hooper
