GOSPEL READING: John 6:1-
Lord Jesus, you satisfy the deepest longing of our heart and you feed us with the finest of wheat
(Psalm 81:16). Fill me with gratitude and give me a generous heart that I may freely share with others what you have given to me.
Although face masks are not compulsory any more please would parishioners entering the church continue to wear face coverings, socially distance and use one way system in place. I appreciate that this is a challenge in hot weather but these measures will hopefully continue to keep everyone safe.
A PRAYER FOR THE SICK
Father of goodness and love, hear our prayers for the sick members of our community and for all who are in need. Amid mental and physical suffering may they find consolation in your healing presence. Show your mercy as you close wounds, cure illness, make broken bodies whole and free downcast spirits. May these special people find lasting health and deliverance, and so join us in thanking you for all your gifts. We ask this through the Lord Jesus who healed those who believed. Amen.
We are adopting the technology already in place in many Catholic parishes around the country.
We now have the facility for you to make contributions to the Parish directly from here
As you will be aware the collections have dropped by approx. £500 per week due to the low Mass attendance. Fortunately a number of parishioners make their donation by Standing Order each month from their banks which means we are receiving £430 per week from them and this has proved essential in keeping a regular flow of income but not sufficient to meet our budget commitments
Would you consider setting up a Standing Order on a monthly, quarterly or yearly
basis with your bank in favour of the Parish – bank details are Sort code:-
This can be done online send your details to the parish office but also a form can be sent to you from the parish office, please phone with your details which can be left on the answering machine if no one is available. If you pay income tax you can gift aid your donation which adds another 25% on top of your gift. Thank you. Fr Tom
