PARISH NEWS

Crib Offerings:

This coming weekend will be the final opportunity to contribute to the ‘Crib Offerings’ baskets/box. These offerings go to ‘Caritas Diocese of Shrewsbury’ for the part of their work that was covered by the old ‘Catholic Children’s Society’. We did not have a second Collection for them, so if you could be a s generous to the ‘Crib Offerings as you can, this would be appreciated.

Sponsored Walk:

Congratulation to our Youth SVP Group, dedicated to Our Lady of Walsingham, on completing their sponsored Walk last Thursday, and thank you to all who have sponsored them so far. It is not too late if you would like to show your support and sponsor them as they try to raise funds to send a ‘VIP’ to Lourdes on this year’s Diocesan Pilgrimage.  Please see any member of the youth group or speak to Fr Niall or Fr Louis.

St Saviour & St Mary of the Angels Parish Luncheon Club:

Will meet again at St Saviour’s on Thursday 11th January from 12 until 2pm. All are welcome for some conversation, company and refreshments.

LPA Junior Youth Club:

Please note (winter venue) – we will meet again at St Saviour’s Church on Thursday 18th January from 6pm until 7.30pm. This group is open to all of our children of primary school age, year 3 and over!

Justice & Peace Group Meeting:

The group will be meeting this Sunday evening (7th January) at 6.30pm in Our Lady’s Parish Centre. We will be discussing events and meetings taking place in the coming months in 2018. Please come along and join the meeting to help in the promotion of social justice in our church community.

Traidcraft Stall:

The Traidcraft stall will be open after Mass next weekend, 13th-14th January at Our Lady’s Church with St. Bernard’s 28th January and St. Saviour’s on 20th-21st January. Please take this opportunity of stocking up with your favourite Fairtrade products or try some of the new items on sale. The Fairtrade movement continues to grow and a visit to the Fairtrade website (fairtrade.org.uk) will provide a better understanding of the how the Fairtrade movement benefits so many small farming communities around the world. Here in our LPA parishes we are making a contribution to the development of Fairtrade in our church community.

Reception into the Catholic Faith:

If you are interested in receiving more information about becoming a Catholic, or know of anyone considering becoming a member of the Church, please speak with a member of our clergy team or contact the parish offices. Further information will be available soon.

 Our Schools Return:

Welcome back to our schools this week. We hope you had a joyful and peaceful Christmas.

New Mass Cards & 2018 LPA Diaries:

These are available across our Churches. If you would like to take one may we suggest an offering of £4-00, for a Mass Card & Diary? This will help us offset any costs involved.

Completion Phase - Our Mission Together- St Saviour & St Mary of the Angels Parish:

Many thanks to all who have supported the ‘Mission’ with prayers, time or financial pledges. The completion weekend for OMT took place in the parish several weeks ago. It is however still possible to support the Mission if you wish. Mission literature and pledge forms will continue to be available from the clergy and members of our ‘Parish Leadership Team’ As always if you wish to return a pledge form, you may do so in any of the following ways: Return the pledge in the envelope provided to the diocese /  Hand the envelope to Fr Louis or Deacon Tony  /  Post the envelope in the Mission Together box located at the rear of our churches.

First Sacraments at St Mary of the Angels – 2018:

Our children preparing for their First Sacraments were enrolled at our 9am Mass last Sunday at St Mary of the Angels church. This was a wonderful celebration and thanks to all who supported it The Sacrament of First Forgiveness for the children will take place on the evening of Wednesday 28th February 2018 and First Holy Communion on Saturday 19th May.
Details regarding the programme at St Saviour’s church & Primary School will be announced soon. Please keep our children & their families in your prayers

Our Mission Together Project – Our Lady & St Bernard’s Parish:

As St Saviour’s & Mary’s have come to their Completion Phase, we wanted to update Our Lady & St Bernard’s Parishioners on how their contribution to OMT has made a difference. We have now, due to people’s continued generosity and making of a Parish Pledge, have now reached just over our goal of £140,000! Thank you so much! This will be a real help to the work & Mission of our Diocese, but also in our Parish Project of remodelling the Sacristy and Confessional at Our Lady’s to make them more ‘user friendly’ and to meet Safeguarding and Health & Safety Expectations. Plans have now been drawn up, to get these in motion. When the plans were being drawn up, it became clear that work needed urgently doing on Our Lady’s Church Roof and infrastructure; with the support of our Diocesan Board of Finance and Adminstration we hope to start these projects in the New Year. A ‘Stewardship Newsletter’ is available this weekend, do please take one.

Our Lady & St Bernard’s Parish Formation Team & next steps:

Thank you to all who have supported our discernment as to the next steps we would like to take as a parish  in building up our Community & working towards building one ‘Missionary Parish’ for the future. Details of our next meeting will be available soon.
