As you will have noticed, most weeks, we are singing the Great Amen at the end of the Eucharistic Prayer. Some confusion has been expressed as to whether we should stand or kneel for the singing of the Great Amen. The General Instruction of the Roman Missal tells us that the people should remain kneeling until after the completion of the Great Amen. After the Great Amen we stand in readiness for the Lord’s Prayer. I hope this is helpful. Father Frank.

After many years of being the stalwart of the parish bulletin editorial rota, John Perry has now hung up his editorial pen. Many thanks to John for his years of service to this task for the parish. The rota team now needs a replacement! The task involves bringing together the week's notices and liturgy arrangements into the standard template that you see each week and takes about 1-2 hrs of time per week. We aim to have 4 people on the rota at any one time so that each editor only does 3 months at a time. No previous editorial experience required! It just needs access to a Computer and email. If you can help or would like to discuss in more detail before committing please speak to one of the current editorial team: David Green, Godfrey Chesshire or Ellie Clarke.

Every 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."
