Fr. Duncan writes: During the Summer Holidays we do not publish a weekly newsletter. Below you will find details of events and Sacramental Preparation that begin in September.

The Holiday Season
Over the next few weeks many of our parishioners will be setting off on holiday. To all those who are going away on holiday I hope you have a good break and a chance to relax and ‘recharge the batteries’ for the autumn. To those of us who will be at home, we too hope for some sun and the chance to relax.
As in past years, during the holiday months, if you are at Mass and not ‘on duty’ could Readers and Eucharistic Ministers please check in the Sacristy before Mass to see if you are needed to cover for others who are on holiday. Many thanks for your help.

RCIA – Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults.
Do you want to know more about the Catholic Faith? The RCIA is an opportunity to explore and deepen our faith. Our first meeting of the new ‘term’ will be towards the end of September on Mondays at 7.00pm in the presbytery. If you know of someone – husband, wife, friend, neighbour who might be interested in exploring whether God may be calling them to become a Catholic, then please ask them to contact Fr Duncan for further information. The important thing to remember is that we are all called to be evangelizers and to spread the Good News of Jesus Christ.

Sunday Group
Registration for Sunday Group 2018/19 will take place on Sunday 9th September from 9.10-9.50am in Hesdin Hall. This is our Parish Religious Education Programme for children in Reception to Year 8 who do not attend a Catholic school. Please contact Jo Marsh if you would like more information. 

Preparation for First Reconciliation and First Holy Communion 2018/19
Parents of all children in Year 3 and above, who are interested in the First Reconciliation and First Holy Communion Programme are invited to attend an information and registration meeting on Wednesday 5th September at 8pm in Hesdin Hall. Children who do not attend a Catholic School are expected to have completed have completed Year 2: Pre-Communion at Sunday Group before they undertake sacramental preparation.

Certificate of Catholic Practice
I have already been asked about signing Certificate of Catholic Practice forms for secondary school applications. Appointments will be available in September and October for these to be signed, as in previous years. It is important to note that the CERTIFICATE OF CATHOLIC PRACTICE is what it says. If you are not practicing your faith, you will not get a certificate!
