Brother Sun, Sister Moon - Film Evening on Monday 27th May

Fr Peter writes: “I have booked the small hall for 7:30pm on Monday 27th May to show “Brother Sun, Sister Moon” – the 1972 film about St Francis and St Clare. It is rated PG (although there is some nudity when Francis rebels

against his father and stands naked in the town square). All are welcome”.

Deacon Dom:

Fr Peter writes: “Good News! Deacon Dom will be ordained a priest by Cardinal Vincent at Westminster Cathedral at 10:30am on Saturday

29th June. You are all invited!

• Dom will celebrate his very first Mass as a priest, at St Mary’s

on Sunday 30th June at 11am.

• If you would like to be part of a committee to help organise

Dom’s party after his first Mass, please put your name on the “Fr Dom Party Sheet” at the back of the church. I will then call a meeting and we can start organising.”

Amendments to the Criminal Justice Bill

Bishop John is the Lead Bishop for Life Issues for the Bishops' Conference of England and Wales, and has lately released a statement on the Criminal Justice Bill expressing his deep concern about two tabled amendments that

seek to liberalise abortion laws. These were debated next week. Bishop Sherrington has voiced his support for two tabled amendments, one of which would reduce the abortion time limit and the other that would not allow

babies with Down syndrome to be aborted up to birth. If you would like to support Bishop John please write to Mike Freer (our local MP). More details can be found on the website for the Catholic Bishops Conference or click on:

This Tuesday there will be no parents meeting, but children will have an extra class in the afternoon at the normal time.
