Thank you for all your continued financial support.

This year we again encourage those who pay tax and who do not participate in GIFT AID to consider doing so. Gift Aid is applicable to Planned Giving (weekly envelopes) or to Standing Orders. This is a very convenient way of making your contribution, it saves on administration and you can cancel or amend your standing order at any time. If as a tax payer you wish to sign a Gift Aid declaration form, the church could claim tax refund based on your donation.
Every £1 donated we are able to claim 25 pence in tax refund.
Contact the Parish Office if you wish to join the scheme.
The new year envelopes 2018/19 are ready for collection.

  This is a letter sent to Priests and married couples in parishes.
An Invitation from the Marriage and Family Life Ministry Agency for Evangelisation

Parishes, movements, schools and other Church institutions can help in a variety of ways to support families and help them grow… The life of every family is marked by all kinds of crises, yet these are also part of its dramatic beauty.
Couples should be helped to realize that surmounting a crisis need not weaken their relationship; instead, it can improve, settle and mature the wine of their union. (AMORIS LÆTITIA para 229)
The Marriage and Family Life Ministry within the Agency for Evangelisation invites you to take part in an initiative to help, by attending with, couples or husbands or wives alone, who are interested in this ministry of ‘accompanying married couples on their way’ to experience the Smart Loving Breakthrough Workshop.
 Thereafter, they will receive all the necessary training (including a Marriage Enrichment Retreat for their own marriage, free of charge) to make the Workshop available to others in your own parish. Smart Loving Break Through is a three-hour workshop primarily designed to renew hope and encourage couples to attend further weekend sessions together.
It is a practical, solution-focused workshop for all stages of marriage. Drawing on contemporary research and Catholic theology, this workshop provides skills and insights to transform marriage relationships into the thriving, joy-filled encounter that they are meant to be.

Pilgrimage to Rue de Bac Paris

rUE DE bARC 2018
The apparitions Heaven came down to earth… Between July and December 1830 Sister Catherine, a young Semi-nary Sister (novice) of the Daughters of Charity, received the extraordinary favour of conversing with the Virgin Mary on three occasions. In the preceding months Catherine had the privilege of other apparitions. Saint Vincent de Paul showed her his heart. While at prayer in the chapel, Catherine saw, on three successive days, the heart of Saint Vincent in three different colours. The heart first appeared white, the colour of peace; then red, the colour of fire; and then black, an indication of the misfortunes that would come
upon France and Paris in particular. Soon afterwards, Catherine saw Christ present in the Eucharistic host. “I saw Our Lord in the Blessed Sacrament all the time of my seminary except the times when I doubted.” On June 6, 1830, feast of the Holy Trinity, Christ appeared as a crucified King, stripped of all his adornments.
 The Parish pilgrimage is for one night stay travelling on Eurostar early on the morning of Friday 30th November and returning on the evening of Saturday 1st December Accommodation and travel details to be arranged later. Please give your name to Melanie as soon as possible if you wish to join in the Pilgrimage.
