 The Solemnity of St. Peter and St. Paul: This feast is celebrated on Wednesday, the 29th of June. There will be Mass here at 10:00 a.m. If you wish to attend an evening Mass, you are welcome to 7:30 p.m. Mass at St. John the Evangelist, Duncan Terrace. This is also the anniversary of the election of Pope Francis and we are encouraged to pray especially for him.

Parish Celebration: This Sunday, 26 June from about noon (after 11:00 Mass), we’ll have a parish celebration now that we can gather once again in the hall post lock down. It’s an opportunity to meet old friends and to welcome new parishioners. It’s a simple “bring and share” lunch with music and dance as well. All are welcome. If you can’t bring something to share – no problem! Come along to enjoy and give thanks for 106 years of our parish and the reopening of the hall.

What to Bring and Share on 26th June: Most important – YOURSELF!, whether or not you bring food or drink If you can bring something, here are some suggestions: a savory dish, sandwiches, finger food, cake, pudding, a bottle. Please bring your contribution to the hall before Mass.

Booking the Hall: Our new system for booking the hall will go public on the 26th of June. There will be information leaflets with details available that day for any who wish to have them.

Money Counters: Since lock down our Sunday collections have been countered and prepared for deposit by our bookkeeper, Oscar, our assistant priests and, now, by counters at St. John’s. It’s time for us to form counting teams again. If you are willing/ interested in helping either on Sundays after the 11:00 Mass (here) or on Monday mornings at St. John’s, please let Father or Sister know. Hopefully we can have several teams prepared soon.

Becoming a Catholic: If you or someone you know is interested in becoming a Catholic or being confirmed as an adult, there are information sheets in the sacristy outlining the usual process of preparation used in the parish (RCIA) Blessed Sacrament and St. John’s candidates prepare together. Pick up a sheet if you are interested or email David Lester who coordinates the programme at davidlester51@btinternet.com and ask him to send you one.

 Prayers for the Sick:  We pray for all our sick and housebound parishioners, especially Sharon McDonnell, Felicia Tawiah, Phuong Quach,, Merline Elizabeth, Stanley and Theresa Russell, Peggy Walsh, Glorea Tejan-Jalloh, Abigail O’Donnell, Albert Boateng and Inita Roberts and Irene Bryan (Esther’s sister and mother)
