An invitation to

Reconciliation and First Holy Communion

6.30 pm ~ Monday 16th September

St Thomas Aquinas Meeting Room

This meeting is for those parents who would like to enrol their child in the First Holy Communion Programme.  This programme is for children living in our parish who are not attending our two parish schools and are currently in Year 3 or above.

The preparation will involve parents attending Mass regularly with their children.  The programme begins on Tuesday, 17th September and every Tuesday evening thereafter at 6 – 7 pm in All Saints Meeting Room.

For Further Information

Come and See.

THANK YOU

FOR ALL THE INVITATIONS TO SEE YOU

BEFORE WE GO.

As there is not the time to see everybody, please ensure you attend the priests’ final Masses during the last two weekends of September and/or Mass of Thanksgiving/’Do’ on the 30th September.

Of course, the priests will make a special effort to visit the housebound.

 WEDDING BELLS

Blessings upon Katie Barnett and Mark James who are to be married at St Thomas Aquinas Church on Friday.  Also, Jodie Griffin and Matthew Ruff  who are to be married at St Thomas Aquinas Church on Saturday.

ARE YOU THINKING OF BECOMING A CATHOLIC?

In September we intend to run our annual “Journey In Faith” course of instruction, which will run through until Easter 2014.  We already have three people interested:  Jenny, Fortune and Marjorie, so the course will definitely go ahead.

The more the merrier, so if you fancy coming along to learn a little more about our wonderful Catholic faith, or even if you are just a little curious, please give your name to one of the clergy and/or look out for when the course will begin.

SCHOOLS ADMISSIONS SEPTEMBER 2014

Please continue to have your child’s diary signed at Sunday Mass (at the time of the Children’s Liturgy of the Word), for primary school age.  For St Paul’s School, Fr Michael has been doing random “spot checks” at many various Masses throughout the year.

FAREWELL TO FR MICHAEL and FR JOSEPH

Your priests will move from Bletchley to their new appointments on Tuesday, 1st October.

A farewell Mass of Thanksgiving, followed by a chance to say ‘goodbye’ (along with a bit of a “do”) will take place on the evening of

Monday 30th September.

More details soon.  Please keep that date free.

 May God Bless Us All
