Scripture notes – 15th Sunday of the Year, B – 15th July 2018

Today’s readings might be titled ‘unlikely messengers’, some who are different from the usual expectations for leaders, but come with a new kind of authority. The prophet Amos had no role in the official religious structures when he was called by God. The twelve apostles also were not part of the Temple ‘establishment when Jesus sent them out to preach.

Please complete a form for your household while you are in church today and hand it in as you leave. The form contains an important statement on data privacy and how we handle your information so please take time to read it. Thank you.

Fr William Kiowi

You will remember Fr William who helped in Fr David’s time. I had an email from Fr William – now a parish priest in Mozambique serving in a poor rural area. He is responsible with a local nun in a feeding programme for the local children. They are presently £500 short for the programme for the next few months and he asked me if I could find some support from our parish. Presently we have a lot of fundraising requests but if anyone could donate £5 cash I will arrange a bank transfer. If you can support may I ask you to place your offering in an envelope with my name and hand into the parish office over the next two weeks. Be assured the funds go directly to the Consolate priests bank account so no deductions for administration and all is legitimate. Many thanks Lesley Pippet

Soup Run

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.

Ellie Kimber RIP

The family of Ellie Kimber wish to thank all parishioners for their Mass Intentions, flowers, sympathy cards and for attending the funeral of Ellie. The support shown by all during this very difficult and painful period has been overwhelming and very much appreciated. Gayle White (Ellie’s mum)

Scripture notes – The birth of John the Baptist – 24th June 2018

This feast is one of the ‘solemnities’ of the year which are celebrated instead of Ordinary Time when they fall on a Sunday. John the Baptist is an important figure in all four Gospels, but the account of his birth is only in Luke. He came to ‘prepare the way’ for the preaching of Jesus, and stands as the great figure between the Old Covenant and the New one we have in Jesus.
