COLLECTION FOR UKRAINE
Pope Francis has appealed to Catholics in Europe to undertake a collection for humanitarian aid for Ukraine on 24th April 2016.The purpose of this collection is to show support and compassion for the victims of the all but forgotten hybrid war which is continuing in Eastern Ukraine. The proceeds of this collection will be joined to a substantial offering to be made by His Holiness as a sign of his own participation in this collection. These funds will be used for the benefit of those living in conflict zones and those displaced within the country.
There are around five million Eastern Rite Catholics living in Ukraine.
A retiral collection will be taken up at all Masses this weekend.
The recent Mission Appeal for the Xaverian Fathers
raised the sum of £1800.
Thank you for your generous response.
THOSE BEING ADMITTED TO HOSPITAL
Please inform Father Hughes of your intended stay in Hospital.
In preparation for going, you may want to receive the Sacrament of Sick.
When being admitted to the Ward please inform those in charge
that you are a Roman Catholic and would be happy to see the Chaplain.
Often Holy Communion is distributed in hospitals on a Sunday.
EXPOSITION OF THE BLESSED SACRAMENT:
Every Friday evening there is a Holy Hour from 7.00 till 8.00 p.m.
This is where you have an opportunity to spend time before Our Lord in the Blessed Sacrament.
Just being still and quiet in His presence and letting his love come to you will fill your hearts and souls with a calm serenity and peace of mind. So at the end of a hard and stressful week why not come and spend a few moments to experience the great peace and tranquility that will see you through the week ahead.
