I'll have the sponsorship form with me after mass today and next week, or you can donate online at our page: https://fundraise.cancerresearchuk.org/team/ellie-and-hannah. Thank you. Ellie Clarke

10.06.2018Year for PriestsThe Solemnity of the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, last Friday, marked the start of a year of thanksgiving, prayer and celebration for priests of this diocese, in preparation for a national celebration of priesthood to coincide with the Solemnity of the Sacred Heart in 2019.

08.06.2018Solemnity of the Most Sacred Heart of JesusOn Friday, we celebrate this Solemnity. St Margaret Mary received the vision of the Sacred Heart of Jesus which led to the devotions which followed. During the Consecration of our church a holy relic of St Margaret Mary was placed in our altar
06.06.2018Get-togetherThis Wednesday 6th June. We meet at 10.30am in BRG car park for a trip to Yew Tree Craft Centre, Wootton Wawen. All welcome to join us.
03.06.2018June - the Month of the Sacred HeartJune is the month of the Sacred Heart. The Solemnity of the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus falls on Friday 8th June - which we will celebrate with a Mass at 10.00am. Great benefits are promised to those who practice this devotion. Also, during this month, we can seek to deepen our devotion to the love of God revealed in the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus - a devotion encouraged by St Margaret Mary, whose relic rests in our altar. We might even consider consecrating ourselves to the Heart of our Lord Jesus Christ. To this end I have printed, in this week's newsletter, a Prayer of Consecration, written by St Margaret Mary, which we could pray daily throughout the month of June and especially before the Mass.
03.06.2018Millennium BreakfastThanks to all those who supported the breakfast which raised £167, a wonderful effort! Special thanks to those who helped tidy away afterwards
03.06.2018Grass in front of the churchWe are looking for a volunteer to cut the grass in front of the church over the summer months. If you are willing to help can you please speak to Joe Martin after Mass. Thank you
31.05.2018Mass this Thursday with Sacrament of the Anointing of the SickEvery last Thursday in the month there is an opportunity for those who are sick to partake of this sacrament. The practice of being anointed with oil as a powerful prayer for strengthening and healing dates back to the earliest Church. Scripture bears witness to this when it says: "Are there any who are sick among you? Let them send for the priests of the Church and let the priests pray over them, anointing them with oil in the name of the Lord; and the prayer of faith will save the sick persons, and the Lord will raise them up; and if they have committed any sins their sins will be forgiven them."
24.05.2018Mass this ThursdayPlease note the time of the Mass on Thursday for the Feast of Our Lord Jesus Christ, The Eternal High Priest is 7.00 pm
20.05.2018Millennium BreakfastOur first breakfast of 2018 will be on Sunday 20 May. There will be the usual fare of warm croissants, toast, butter and jam with tea, coffee or orange juice, all for a suggested donation of £2. All proceeds to help Columban Father Ed O'Connell with his projects in Lima. Special thanks to Joe Martin who emptied the Coca Cola bottle. The splendid sum of £201.35 has been transferred to Fr Ed's account
20.05.2018Choral Energy!Our Choral Energy concert last week was a great success. A full house enjoyed music from The National Grid UK choir 'The Gridtones', our own choir, The Cecilias and other singing groups and soloists. The interval bar was complemented by a sale of baked goods courtesy of The Gridtones' own Misha Bruce. We made a total of £1267.70 which will be split between our parish and National Grid's chosen charity, The Alzheimer's Society UK. National Grid will take that donation and double it so well done to everyone involved.

It has been brought to my attention that some are dipping the consecrated host into the precious blood of Christ at Holy Communion. This practice is forbidden. If you do not wish to drink from the chalice then just receive Communion in one kind. To receive Communion in one kind is to receive a full Communion. Thank you for your cooperation in this matter. Father Frank
