COFFEE AFTER 10AM MASS TODAY
Pondering Spiritual things. That's the invitation when we assemble in Church for the celebration of the Sunday Eucharist. We believe that Jesus is truly present in sacramental form. He is the one who offers us the fullness of life, who calls us out of ourselves, to contemplate Almighty God and to rest, to reman in his love. We are a little unworthy but God specialises in forgiving and building us up again, making us realise the greatness of our vocation to love. He asks, we could agree, a lot of us but at the same time he gives us the means. He calls us to perfection but that is not all. He provides for us in our weakness by the gift of Himself as food for the journey towards Eternal Life.

Ukraine- Urgently needed- Sleeping bags for those on the front line. Walking sticks, walking aids, crutches, wheelchairs, water purifying tablets, water jugs with purifying cartridges, medicines, sanitary items and computers. The person who organises the sending of all the aid from the parish hall to Ukraine is in constant touch, when feasible, with medical personnel, with fire fighters on the front line, with those trying to organise schooling in basements and with those who are generally trying to help those who have lost everything. All tell her what is urgently required. She is always looking for ways to get the things to Ukraine as quickly as possible as these items are needed 'yesterday' |
Clergy support fund second collection- this will take place on 25th and 26th February.
The Clergy Support Fund of the Archdiocese of Southwark provides care for priests in their old age and retirement, and in their time of ill health. A gift to this worthy fund will ensure a dignified retirement for our priests, after they have dedicated a lifetime of service to Christ, His Church and His People. In 2022, the Clergy Support Fund provided care to 73 retired priests, at a cost of £1.33 million. With the number of priests over the age of 65 steadily increasing, so too will the financial obligation to the Archdiocese.
Please be generous with a gift to the Clergy Support Fund and continue to keep our priests in your prayers. Details of how to donate will be published next week.

Therefore, we are holding a Soup Lunch to support those in dire need and offer them hope.
