In his Pastoral Letter for the Feast of the Holy Family 2014, Cardinal Vincent wrote to us and reminded us about the Synod of Bishops in Rome in October 2014 on the topic of the challenges facing the family today. He also informed us that there was to be another Synod of Bishops in Rome in October 2015 – a part two if you like – on the ‘Vocation and Mission of the family today’. He let us know that Pope Francis wanted us to use this time in between as a time of ‘spiritual discernment’ to ponder and to pray over the challenges and opportunities which face the family in our society today.
The Bishops of England and Wales have put together a leaflet of reflection, prayer and questions, to help us with this ‘spiritual discernment’. A copy of this leaflet can be found by clicking on the link below. We are invited to use it either on our own, in our own family circle, with a group of friends or with a group of fellow parishioners. Cardinal Vincent would like to know how we respond to the questions contained in this pamphlet. Responses should be sent to: Mr Edmund Adamus, Director for Marriage and Family Life, Vaughan House, 46 Francis Street, London SW1P 1QN. They should arrive before Pentecost Sunday 24th May 2015. Do please let us spend some time praying, pondering, and responding to the Bishops reflection leaflet.
On Wednesday 19th March 2014, the Feast of St. Joseph, all the children in years 1 to 6 at St. Joseph’s School, Hanwell, attended mass in Church to mark their Patronal Feast Day. With beautiful and robust singing the children lead the congregation in a happy celebration enjoyed by all. The children, having reflected upon their Patron St. Joseph as carer and protector, chose to follow his example by expressing their concern in a very practical way for others in need. To this mass all the children brought a tin of food; and these were donated to some members of Hanwell Homeless Concern, an organisation in the parish which provides lunch one day a week in the Parish Hall for those who are homeless. Well done St. Joseph’s children!
