PETER’S PENCE SECOND COLLECTION TODAY at all Masses. Each year, a special charitable collection is solicited from Catholics throughout the Church. Contributions are intended for use by the Pope in his worldwide humanitarian efforts. Victims from natural disasters, wars, diseases and other catastrophic events receive assistance from Peter’s Pence. Economically strapped dioceses and churches, hospitals and Catholic education programs are also among recipients of these funds.
Collectors: Please note the new collection bags. Please remember the BLUE bags are for the 1st Collection and RED ones for the
THE WORLD ON A PLATE.

If you and your family or friends would like to prepare something for this event, please contact the parish office 02085203647 before 1st September 2017.

The next important stage of the Stewards of the Gospel discernment process is upon us! On Monday 7th August a document setting out in draft a vision and strategy to take our diocese forward will be published at http://www.dioceseofbrentwood.net/news/. We will also be getting hard copies of the document to share and read so that we can pray about the contents and discuss them before responding to it.
Reflection: Lord, may I never forget the sacrifice that gives me life. We are saved by faith, not works, but we live out our faith by loving others and caring for their needs. May we, keep our eyes open for those who might need our help as we walk together in this journey of life.
