Welcome Message from Father Kevin Hooper

Week Commencing: Sunday 28th September2014

Father Kevin HooperTHIS SUNDAY
2014 marks the Silver Jubilee of the Permanent Diaconate in the Archdiocese. It is a year for us to give thanks for the restoration of the permanent diaconate following the Second Vatican Council. It also gives us the opportunity also to ask God’s blessing on our deacons, on all in formation and for an increase in vocations. Father David Bazen is the Archdiocesan Director for the Permanent Diaconate. This Sunday we welcome The Rev’d Mr Gerard Nosowski, Parish Deacon at St. Marie’s Rugby.
He will exercise the liturgical ministry of a deacon and preach at each mass.
Please feel free to speak to Deacon Nosowski during his visit to welcome him and to encourage him in his ministry.
The Archbishop has sent a Pastoral Letter which we will receive next Sunday.

FROM ARCHBISHOP BERNARD
The Holy Father has declared that this Sunday, 28 September, the whole Church is to pray for the Third Extraordinary General Assembly of the Synod of Bishops, which begins on Sunday 5 October to treat the topic The Pastoral Challenges of the Family in the Context of Evangelization.

FATHER HUDSON’S SOCIETY
This Sunday, 27 / 28 September, there will be a second collection for Father Hudson’s Society, the social welfare agency of the Archdiocese. It supports people in need of various ages, those suffering from dementia, the disabled, fostering etc. Envelopes are available, particularly for the Gift Aid scheme. Please be generous.

GIFT AID REFUND
Recently Gift Aid tax refunds of £18,422 have come to the parish. I am grateful to Mr Tony Stokes who heads up this important work as part of the Finance Committee. We are so grateful as a parish to parishioners who participate in the scheme. There is an invitation for any new parishioner who may wish to join the scheme through envelopes or Standing Order to connect either Tony (857 866) or Father Kevin.

With every blessing,

Father Kevin Hooper
