Welcome Message from Father Kevin Hooper
Week Commencing: Sunday 27th July 2014

Father Kevin HooperTHIS SUNDAY WE KEEP THE DAY FOR LIFE
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.

FIRST RECONCILIATION AND FIRST HOLY COMMUNION ALSO CONFIRMATION FOR THOSE NOT AT CATHOLIC SCHOOLS
We hope to have groups ready to begin in September. To that end we need the names of those who come to mass regularly here who wish, with their parents’ support, to be prepared for the sacraments. If there is a need then we will try to see that preparation is given. PLEASE GIVE ALL NAMES, ADDRESSES AND PHONE CONTACTS TO FATHER KEVIN OR FATHER DAVID BY THIS SUNDAY, thank you.

AFTERNOON TEA
A big thank you goes to all who supported or helped in any way to make this a most enjoyable afternoon.  £305.00 will go towards our charities.

HYMN BOOKS AT ST FRANCIS’ CHURCH
Application forms are available at St Francis’ Church and £5 will sponsor a book. Last day for applications is today.
