Confirmation:For candidates of confirmation this year who have not received their confirmation certificate they are available from the office.  Please speak to on of the priests to arrange collection. Many thanks.

Children’s Liturgy: Since the return of children’s liturgy at the 10:30 mass in Our lady of Lourdes more and more children are attending and we are delighted to see them. As the numbers grow, so too does the need for more adult help. You don’t have to be a teacher or theologian, just someone who would be willing to give a little time to helping out each week at the session. Please speak to one of the Children’s Liturgy team or one of the priests if you are willing and interested in this. The rewards far outdo the effort.

Passion Play Oberammergau: Parish Pilgrimage to the world-famous Passion play at Oberammergau. The origin in rooted in a pandemic. In 1633, Oberammergau was struck with the bubonic plague, and many people died. The townspeople vowed that if the deaths would stop, they would perform a Passion play every ten years to show their appreciation for God. The plague ended, and the townspeople fulfilled their vow. Our pilgrimage to attend the play leaves on the 8th of August returning on the 14th. Those who have already signed up can you please pay your balance before July 17th; full payment must be made by then to secure your ticket to the play. (It is a German thing) The total cost of the pilgrimage is £1190, cheques payable to St. Aidan’s Catholic Church. (Money transfer can also be arranged please speak to Fr. Fergal.) Includes 3* accommodation half board, (breakfast and dinner) and tickets to the play. Please note Travel insurance is not included. You must arrange your own. At the present time you need to have proof of vaccinated or a recent certified COVID test taken 24 hours before travel. If you would like to arrange a time to make a payment outside office hours, I’ll be happy to accommodate you at a mutually agreed time. There are still some seats left if you would like to come!!

First Communions: Over the following weeks the children from this year’s first communion programme will be making their first communion at various masses. Congratulations to all the children and their families. Please keep them in your prayers as they make their final preparations.
