POPE FRANCIS’ PRAYER INTENTION FOR

JULY 2017

Please join Pope Francis this month in praying for:

Lapsed Christians

That our brothers and sisters who have strayed from the faith, through our prayer and witness to the Gospel, may rediscover the merciful closeness of the Lord and the beauty of the Christian life..

“VOLUNTEER WELCOMERS

West Bletchley Wellbeing Centre (WBWB)

Do you have any spare time to look after the Reception desk, for a couple of hours per week at the West Bletchley Wellbeing Centre (adjacent to the Parish Council Offices) in Whaddon Way (opposite All Saints Church)?  The Catholic organization, MARRIAGE CARE, uses the premises for their Counselling sessions.  If interested please contact Diana on 01908 370860 and leave a message.”

 

PARISH PILGRIMAGE TO POLAND

Fr Christopher is hoping to lead a Parish Pilgrimage to Poland following in the footsteps of St John Paul II and praying at the Sanctuary of Divine Mercy:

10th to 14th September 2018.

Please contact Michael Smith on 01908 507184

or email mikevivienne@yahoo.co.uk

for Brochure and Itinerary as soon as possible.

 

CHILDREN’S LITURGY

If your child has made their 3rd birthday and is confident enough to join the group without the need of a parent being present, then they are very welcome to join the Children’s Liturgy during Mass.  Parents are encouraged to stay to help their child ‘settle in’ for the first two occasions but after that your child should be able to be left under the supervision of our Parish Catechists.  Children who are preparing for First Holy Communion need to stay for the whole Mass in Church as this is an important part of their preparation.

 

NOISE AND DISRUPTION DURING MASS

We aim and hope to be a ‘child friendly’ parish where children are especially welcome. Yet as a courtesy to others, please do not feel embarrassed about having to take your child outside or into the meeting room (when it is free) for a few minutes, if they are particularly noisy.

Thank you for your understanding.

 

SECOND COLLECTION TODAY

Apostleship of the Sea

A representative will speak at all Masses.

                                   

BEREAVEMENT SUPPORT

Do you miss someone? Would you like to talk about it? Our Parish Bereavement Group gives you the safe space to share your grief following the loss of a loved one. We listen and talk about those who are gone and reflect on our faith to guide us through. The Bereavement Group will meet on:

Next Meeting: Monday 10 July

3.30 pm All Saints Church Meeting Room

TO CELEBRATE the diversity of this parish it has been suggested that we have a multi cultural event whereby we can share food, dance, music etc, from our homeland or country of origin. If you are interested in helping to organise such an event please call Maggie on 01908 563277.
