Welcome Message from Father Kevin Hooper
Week Commencing: Sunday 24th August 2014

Father Kevin HooperANNUAL ROSARY RALLY AT GRACE DIEU MANOR LEICESTERSHIRE
This year’s Rally will be led by Father Anselm Stark OCSO. It will take place on this Sunday, 24 August beginning with mass at 3.00pm. After a break for refreshments, events continue at 5.00pm with Marian and Eucharistic Devotions - See poster in St Francis’ narthex.

NEXT SUNDAY: NATIONAL CATHOLIC FUND
Our contribution to the Bishops’ Conference for this year is well over £1200.00.
To offset this Levy on the Parish, there will be a second collection at all masses next Sunday.
This is now such a huge amount that we should all try to contribute towards it.

ALL OUR GOOD WISHES AND BLESSINGS FOR THE FUTURE
We pray for the young people from our parish who have now all heard their examination results. May God bless and guide them all as they take decisions regarding the future.
