Welcome Message from Father Kevin Hooper

Week Commencing: Sunday 20th April 2014

Welcome to the web site of the Catholic Parish of Kenilworth, served by the Churches of St Augustine & St Francis of Assisi.

THIS SUNDAY
We rejoice in the Resurrection of Our Lord Jesus Christ. After our devotions of Lent and the solemnity of the Passion, we now celebrate the victory of our blessed Lord over sin and death. We witness the empty tomb and we give thanks that life is stronger than death, that love is stronger than hatred and that Jesus Christ is alive and with us for evermore! HAPPY EASTER, EVERYONE.

Thank you to those who have worked so hard, front of house or behind the scenes, for our Holy Week and Easter celebrations. It is greatly appreciated.


I wish to thank Father David, the altar servers, organist, musicians and singers, cleaners, readers and wardens for all they have done during Holy Week and the Triduum. Special thanks for the beautiful floral decorations and our gratitude to those who have worked so hard to create them.
Please note that there will be only one collection at the Easter Masses.

The Gift Aid and Planned Giving ordinary envelopes will go to the parish.
Those envelopes marked Easter Offering and all other monies will be an offering to your parish priest.
All Children are invited to take a small Easter egg home with them after the Easter masses with our love.
