Parish Bulletin – 18th September

Dear Parishioner/Friend of the Parish,

Our September homeless men’s meal takes place this evening (18th September) at 7pm. Thanks to your outstanding generosity £700.20 (£664.20 worth of donations to the homeless dinner plus £36 from Wednesday’s tea room) has been raised to meet the costs. The men will tuck into a three course meal, take part in live entertainment, and will be given gifts, all on your behalf. So, many thanks again for all your support.

Next Sunday marks Solemn Annual Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament (40 Hours) in our parish. The Holy Hours each evening will be at 7pm and will be given by visiting clergy. We are in need of watchers before the Blessed Sacrament (please sign sheet in the hall) and donations for flowers (please give your donation to Agnes or John).

Please note an addition to the Sunday Mass schedule. From now on there will be a 6pm Traditional Latin Mass (1962 missal) on Sunday evenings. Evening Prayer/Rosary/Seasonal Devotions & Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament, for the time being, will take place at 5pm on Sunday evenings instead of the usual 6.30pm.

Fr Morris, Parish Priest
