Home Mission – Sunday 15th September

This Sunday we celebrate Home Mission Sunday. We are invited to find ourselves in the Gospel story as we accompany the characters who call out, ‘Rejoice with me!’ These words express the joy of finding something, or someone they had lost. Imagine the joy in your own heart when you see someone you love coming home to Church, because they are seeking, or have found Christ. Occasionally this happens by direct divine intervention, but more often we are called to be the face of Christ, praying for, inviting and welcoming those we love into a relationship with Him. Thankfully we are not alone in this task. The Home Mission Office is a national organisation that helps the local Church engage in the vital mission of Evangelisation. This weekend, they ask for our prayers and our financial support. Our prayers help them to be attentive to the Holy Spirit who directs their work, and our donations will enable them to help the local Church share the joy of the Gospel throughout England and Wales. There will be a retiring collection after all Masses this weekend for Home Mission. For more information about the Home Mission Office or to donate online please visit


Please God, within the next few weeks the new Porch window will be installed completing that part of the work. There is still work to be done around the church. We thank sincerely all who have donated or pledged donations to the cost of the work but we need to continue our fundraising efforts. With this in mind we are having a fundraising meeting on Monday 23rd September at 7:30pm in the lower parish rooms to form a committee. Please do come and help.
