16th Sunday in Ordinary Time

Fr. Duncan writes:Yesterday morning a group from our parish left for Lourdes to join the Diocesan Pilgrimage, led by our Archbishop, Cardinal Vincent. On Sunday afternoon, we shall gather, as the Diocese of Westminster on Pilgrimage, in the Upper Basilica of the Immaculate Conception for the opening Mass. On Thursday our closing Mass will be at the Grotto. Fr Duncan will be offering this Mass for all the pilgrims and parishioners of Most Sacred Heart Parish, Ruislip and for their intentions. If you are able, please try to come to Mass on Thursday morning to pray with us. If you are unable to come to Mass on Thursday, please join us in prayer by saying, for example, a decade of the Rosary. Throughout the week our Mass on each day is in various different chapels and churches in Lourdes. During the week I shall ‘post’ your petitions at the grotto in Lourdes and before we leave on Friday I will light a candle at the grotto for the intentions of all in our parish. Please keep us in your prayers, during this week. We shall remember you all in our prayers in Lourdes.
