Day for Life – 17th June
This year the theme is Human Trafficking. Jesus tells us, “I have come that you may have life, and have it to the full.” (John 10:10 NJB). But many people do not have life to the full. They have fallen victim to the scourge of human trafficking and modern slavery which are an assault on a person’s innate human dignity. People are not commodities to be traded ruthlessly for criminal profit. This is something that is happening in communities across our country, not just in our big cities. It’s not only happening in brothels and nail bars, but on farms, building sites and factories as well. Nor is this a problem confined to immigrant communities, it is affecting our own citizens too. The UN estimates that over 40 million people worldwide are in slavery. In the UK alone, it is estimated that every year there are over 13,000 victims of trafficking from all countries. There are many organisations working to put a stop to human trafficking and modern slavery. One of these, the Santa Marta Group, works internationally to bring the Catholic Church and law enforcement agencies together to eradicate slavery. To read more visit www.santamartagroup.com. There will be a retiring collection this weekend 16th/17th June for Day for Life. You can also donate online at www.dayforlife.org/donate or by cheque made payable to CATEW.
Make sure you make a fuss of your dad today!
Crouch End Festival
This Sunday, 17th June, our 11:15am Family Mass, complete with Celebration Choir will celebrate the Crouch End Festival.
The 300km St Peter’s Fundraising Bike Ride
Twelve tired parents and governors arrived back safely in Crouch End last Sunday afternoon after cycling more than 300km in three days to raise funds for St Peter’s and St Gildas’ schools. The riders left Doncaster, South Yorkshire, on Friday morning, cycling in excess of 100km on each day en route to north London. At the last count, they had raised more than £12,000, which will be split between the schools and used to improve playground facilities. A big thank you is owed to all those who helped to organise the ride and everyone who donated money. The response to a great cause has been overwhelming and shows the community spirit that exists at St Peter’s and St Gildas’. Aileen O’Donnell.
We all have a unique mission in the World. Some of us are called by God, for a specific role in the Church. If you feel that you would like to serve Jesus more closely, be a part of our Sunday Mass and Holy Days Celebrations in a different way, if you want to make a difference and help people celebrating their Faith and get closer to God, you can join our group of Altar Servers! For applications contact Ruben (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Father Sean in the next two weeks. Support will be given and training provided.
Soup Run urgent need
Our Soup Run is running low on tuna fish and sweetcorn. If you are able to buy a tin (or a stack of 4), it will be greatly appreciated. Please leave in box at back of church. NB: we do not need any tea at the moment but other items (coffee, sugar, cheese, tinned corned beef/chopped ham) are always well received. Thank you.
