Just as on the Feast of the Ascension we celebrate the crowning of Jesus, so on the Feast of the Assumption we celebrate the crowning of Mary his mother. She who share intimately in the joyful and sorrowful mysteries of the life of Jesus here on earth now shares

his glory in heaven. We too are called to share in the glory of Christ. Let us turn to God now during our mass and our daily lives confident that he will support us with his saving grace, and that he will forgive us our trespasses. We are invited to live in the spirit of the great prayer which Jesus taught us.

Ultimately, prayer is not about words but about communion with God. Prayer is a resting in the presence of God. It's more a question of staying quiet in his presence than of saying prayers. May Mary be a sign of hope and comfort for us all on our pilgrimage to his Kingdom. May we seek to do God's will as faithfully as Mary did. When our earthly pilgrimage is over. May Christ welcome us all into his heavenly Kingdom

Food Shortage. Some of the families over here are finding it very hard to buy enough food to feed their children, especially teenage boys. Can we help?

Uranian refugees learning English. We need some volunteers from amongst our parishioners

Cafod Summer Campaign. "Each of us has a role to play in transforming food systems for the benefit of people and the planet." For more information visit

Too Good to Go App is a free app which allows you to purchase and collect at a great price, unsold food from shops, cafes, restaurants and hotels to prevent it from being thrown away. It is called a magic bag. You won't know what is in your bag until you collect it. Food waste is a worldwide issue and each year more than one third of food produced in the world goes to waste.

Purley Food Hub- food for the poor. Please help

Gardening Group Our small gardening group has been trying to clear the weeds and brambles at the back of our church hall, for future use of the parishioners. It is a challenge as it is like a builder's yard. Yes, we need your help. Are you a gardener, can you share

some of your knowledge and ideas? We also need some muscle to help us dig- do you have an hour or two you could spare on a Saturday morning? As part of our LiveSimply journey we would like to cultivate this area and make it more productive and enjoyable for the parish. If you can help please contact: Peter Elfer 07955196539. Denise Miller 07747691826 or Mary Piper 07884333612. Next meetings 20 August and 3rd


Apprenticeship at the Archdiocese of Southwark The Archdiocese of Southwark are seeking an apprentice to work within the Fundraising & Gift Aid team in their central offices (located Lambeth North). If you, or someone you know, would like to earn a level 3 Business Administrator Standard whilst working within a hardworking and passionate team, supporting the work of the Catholic Church in South London and Kent, please find out more by visiting:

Did you know that CAFOD, the Catholic Agency for Overseas Development, helps some of the poorest and most marginalised people across the world? We can reach so many people because we are a member of Caritas Internationalis, the Catholic Church network with a presence in 165 countries. Our local experts work with people over the long-term, helping them to have the right skills, tools and opportunities to live with dignity and support their families. For example, in South Sudan we are helping families learn how to farm better as the climate gets hotter, so that they can cope better in the future when things get even

more difficult. Thank you for your support. Celeste and Sarah, CAFOD Community Participation Coordinators in Southwark.
