Day of prayerful remembrance for survivors of abuse

In February 2016, Pope Francis asked each Bishops’ Conference to establish a Day of Prayer for Survivors of Abuse. In response, the Bishops of England and Wales have asked that this be remembered on Friday 12 April. Accordingly on Friday 12th April we will have an extra Stations of the Cross at 7.30 pm, when we will pray for victims and for the deepening of the Church’s sense of repentance. Cardinal Nichols writes: ‘Day by day, the pain of those who have suffered abuse, and its lasting corrosive impact, are brought more fully into the light. The pain of that betrayal of trust is all the more profound when the abuse took place within the community of the Catholic Church. We also see so clearly the failures in leadership in the Church that have exacerbated the sufferings of those who have been abused. We have plenty of reasons to pray.’

 

Planned Giving Envelopes

These are now available for collection in the porch.

Please take a few minutes to collect your box. Gift Aiding

your offertory using numbered envelopes or a Standing

Order is a practical way of increasing the value of your offering by 25 pence for every pound you give at no extra cost to you. Providing you are a UK taxpayer, you can join the scheme by signing a Gift Aid Declaration taking just three minutes. It is totally confidential.

 

Rota for readers and ministers of communion over Easter

Because we cannot predict who will be available, we suspend the usual rotas over the Easter Triduum. If you are a reader or minister of communion and you know that you will be available, we invite you to sign up for duty for some of the services on the volunteer rota that is in the sacristy.

 

The Passage: Work with the homeless

The Passage is raising funds through the Big Give from 12 noon Tues 19th March – 12 noon Monday 1 April to support its work with homeless people moving from Street to Home. Double your Donation, Double your impact.  This is a matched giving scheme for online donations.  If someone (can be company, individual or trust) gave £10 online matched giving of £10 would bring the Gift up to £20 (and for individuals to £22.50 with Gift Aid with higher rate tax relief it may cost the donor less than £10). For more information ring Andrew Hollingsworth 020 75921856 andrew.h@passage.org.uk

St. Michael's Catholic Grammar School is appealing to parents of Year 5 Catholic girls who may be considering applying to take the entrance tests in September 2019.

St. Michael's is expanding by an extra 32 places.  Priority is going to be given to girls who are 'Pupil Premium'.  This means girls who are having, or have had, free school meals because of low income or could be eligible to apply for free school meals.

This is a specific evening targeted at support only for families in this category.
