Fifth Sunday of Easter

Fr. Duncan writes: This Sunday we have the second of our Parish First Communion Sundays. At the 10.00am and 12.00noon Masses 46 of our younger parishioners will be receiving Jesus for the first time in the Sacrament of the Eucharist. Please pray for them, their parents and catechists as they complete their preparations for these special days. The rehearsals will take place on Friday evening. These rehearsals are very important to ensure the children and their parents understand fully what is involved. I am particularly grateful to Jo Marsh and her team of catechists, who have been teaching the children and have prepared them to receive this Sacrament. Please keep them all in your prayers.

PLEASE NOTE – CHANGE OF MASS TIMES THIS SUNDAY MORNING

The Priest Training Fund Collection
The annual collection for the Priest Training Fund (WEEF) will be taken up this weekend. It is one of the very important collections that we are asked to support. This fund supports the men who are in training for the priesthood and who will serve us as priests in our diocese. The very encouraging news is that there are now more men training for the priesthood than for many years. The number of men coming forward has grown rapidly in recent years and there are now 45 seminarians at present in training at Allen Hall, 27 of whom are for our diocese. Our prayers for more priests really are being answered and it is now up to us to ensure that there is enough money to cover the cost of their training. The preparation of new priests takes six years and this work depends on our donations. Please be as generous as you can in the collection so that we can prepare our priests to spread the Gospel. It has no other support and needs our help. If you are a UK taxpayer, please complete the gift aid declaration on the special donation envelopes, so that the tax can be reclaimed. Many thanks
