Welcome Message from Father Kevin Hooper
Week Commencing: Sunday 31st August 2014

Father Kevin HooperTHIS 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. This is now such a huge amount that we should all try to contribute towards it.

NEW SCHOOL YEAR
St Augustine’s and Crackley Hall Schools will soon open again for the new academic year. At this important time we ask the Lord’s blessing upon Mrs Scull and her staff, and Mr Duigan and his staff. We welcome new staff members and we remember in prayer all young people who will be moving on in their academic lives or moving up to new classes. We pray that this new school year will be a happy one and that all staff, pupils, parents and Governors will know the Lord’s guidance and help.  We remember too the work of the Trinity Catholic School in Leamington Spa, and pray for Mr Chris Gabbett, the Principal and the whole school community.

ST VINCENT de PAUL SOCIETY

CHARITY RAFFLE FOR THE LYMPHOMA ASSOCIATION
Supporting “Turn Britain Purple” week for research into lymphatic cancer is Douglas Faulconbridge, a long-standing friend of Father Kevin, who has non Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, the UK’s fifth most common cancer.  Douglas will be selling tickets after the Masses on Saturday 6 and Sunday 7 September to raise money.  Prizes are a Jeroboam of Taittinger Champagne (£2 a ticket) and a giant 53 inch Teddy Bear (£1 a ticket).  I hope you will support him and the charity and help “Turn Britain Purple”!

SALVE
Members are holding a 'Produce and Puddings' sale after 6.30pm Mass at St. Francis on Saturday 6 September to mark their 40th anniversary. A selection of homemade pies, crumbles, tarts, cakes and bread rolls, along with a variety of fresh fruit, vegetables and preserves, will be for sale, with all proceeds going to Mother Teresa's Sisters of Charity. We would welcome donations of fruit and vegetables from parishioners for the sale, which can be dropped off at St. Francis on that Saturday after 4pm. For further information, please contact M. Sexton 855 930.

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

With every blessing,

Father Kevin Hooper
