Parish renewal

“Divine Renovation: From A Maintenance To A Missional Parish” is a best-selling book written by Fr. James Mallon, a priest in the Diocese of Halifax, Canada and published in 2014. It is a wonderful resource and ongoing guide for Parishes seeking to cultivate communities of discipleship who wish to foster a vibrant and dynamic faith life. It’s an opportunity to begin to think about how we can live our mission differently, to rethink our models of parish life and to respond to Pope Francis call for parish renewal and the New Evangelization. If your faith is important to you and would like to explore how to nourish it and proclaim it please do come along on Tuesday night, 25th September, at 7:30pm in the Parish Rooms. If you wish to get a flavour or do a little homework see this youtube link. Fr Sean

Greetings from Mozambique – News from Fr William Kiowi

SHORT INFORMATION OF SAO MIGUEL PARISH AND NUTRITION CENTRE JOSÉ ALLAMANO

Dear Lesley and all parishioners of St. Peter-in-Chains, a lot of greetings from Fr. William Kiowi.

I come through this means to say thank you very much for your contribution of £505 for our Nutrition Centre of Joseph Allamano (Centro Nutricional-José Allamano).

HISTORY AND GEOGRAPHY OF SAO MIGUEL PARISH AND NUTRITION CENTRE JOSÉ ALLAMANO

The parish of São Miguel, since its foundation, is characterized by its dedication of integral evangelization: annunciation of the gospel and various initiatives of human promotion and service to all kind of people, such as education and health.

The parish of São Miguel and the Nutrition Centre-José Allamano belong to the district of Cuamba. Cuamba district is situated at the southern part of Niassa province, about 295Km of Lichinga. In the north, Cuamba district borders with the district of Metarica and Mandimba. In the south it borders with the district of Mecanhelas and Gurue of Zambezia province. In the east, Cuamba borders with the districts of Lalaua and Malema of Nampula province, and in the west, Cuamba district borders with the district of Mecanhelas.

THE STRUCTURE OF THE PARISH

The parish of São Miguel is structured in 13 areas and 116 communities. The distance between these areas is from 30Km to 50Km. In these areas we have 350 catechists; these catechists help us in the celebration of the liturgy of the word and the distribution of the Eucharist. They also form other catechists and teach other Christians the way of living the sacraments for example visiting the sick and reconciliation. For a year we baptize 1500 (one thousand and five hundred) children and catechumens, 1000 (one thousand) confirmations, and 320 (three hundred and twenty) marriages.

Following the census of 2007, Cuamba district has got the population of 187,458 and also the district is estimated to have the population density of 30.1 per Km2.

The relation potential economic dependence is of 1:1.2 that is, for each 10 children or old age exist 12 persons of active age.

The population is young, 45% are below 15 years of age, the majority are feminine and agricultural rural habited.

In its married majority, they marry after 12 years of age; they have got a very strong religious belief, dominated by catholic religion. 80% of the population are peasants and depend on agriculture. They cultivate maize and beans for their staple food, tobacco and cotton for cash crops.

NUTRITION CENTRE OF JOSEPH ALLAMANO (CENTRO NUTRICIONAL JOSÉ ALLAMANO)

Our Nutrition Centre of Joseph-Allamano began in 1990 by Consolata Fathers. The intention of the centre was to help orphans and malnutrition children. I, Fr. William, parish priest (Consolata Father) and my two confreres, as well as giving our service to the parish of São Miguel, we also help the running of the Nutrition Centre.

This Nutrition Centre has a lot of economical challenges of its running: First of all our Nutrition Centre depends on the help of donors (benefactors) for its running. Secondly this year the number malnutrition children have been increased from 50 to 85 children.

Looking at the children in need and the increased number of children, I opted to knock the door at St. Peter-in-Chains through our sister Lesley Pippet so that you could help the children in need. Thanks be to God that our sister Lesley in collaboration with the parish members of St. Peter-in-Chains managed to raise £505, we are very grateful for that, God bless all of you. We ask you to continue with this spirit. Let it not be the end instead let it be the beginning. Whatever you have for us it is welcome, even if how little it is, for us it will make the difference for our malnutrition children.

WHAT DO WE DO WITH YOUR FUND RAISING?

We use it to buy milk: Lactogen 1, Lactogen 2, Cowbell, (Multimistura) the mixture of different products of maize, beans, groundnuts, sorghum, sunflower etc.

Every Saturday the parents in charge of these children come to the centre with their children to collect milk, mixed product and to weigh their children in order to know if there is improvement to their weight or not. Our lady Margarida, the one on the photo dressed white cloth like a nurse, has been working at our centre since 1990 in collaboration with some religious sisters, she weighs children in order to know if there is children’s improvement or not. On week days, Margarida visits the homes of these children who receive the product from our centre in order to know their progress. Our centre always collaborates with the district rural hospital of Cuamba. For example the child before receiving the product from our centre, our lady Margarida refers her/him to the district rural hospital first, to see if a child has got malaria or other sickness. After that the district rural hospital refers a child to our Nutrition centre.

Love and greetings to all parishioners Of St. Peter-in-Chains

Fr. William

Adoremus – National Eucharistic Congress –  8th/9th September – Liverpool

Eucharistic Congresses are gatherings of clergy, religious and laity which promote an awareness of the central place of the Eucharist in the life and mission of the Church. We can participate in it at home by 1) Coming together on Friday night in the Church for our weekly hour of adoration; 2) Mass and exposition on Saturday morning from 9am to 10am; 3) Visiting Adoremus website which has many resources, podcasts and prayers etc to help us pray and reflect at home and grow in our love for the Eucharist, http://www.catholicnews.org.uk/Home/Special-Events/Adoremus-National-Eucharistic-Pilgrimage; 4) Try to attend mass more regularly, reverently and joyfully. Let us pray for its success.

Next Sunday, 8th/9th September, is Education Sunday. For well over a hundred years there has been an annual recognition of Education Sunday in England and Wales. It is a national day of prayer and celebration for everyone in the world of education. The theme for 2018 is ‘Faith and Works’. Each year the theme is devised by an ecumenical steering group representing different Christian denominations and organisations under the auspices of Churches Together in England.

The Pope’s Prayer Intention

In September, we join the Holy Father in prayer for his Universal Intention, that young people in Africa may have access to education and work in their own countries.

Building Works – access to the Parish Rooms

There will be no access to the Parish Rooms via the basement area steps until further notice. Access will be through the church and the sacristy when the church is open and through the Presbytery if the church closed. Thank you for your cooperation.

You can see photos of the works progressing here.

We thank everyone who stepped in to help over the holiday period – Supply Priests, Readers, Eucharistic Ministers, Altar Servers, Soup Run Sandwich-makers & Distributors, Counters and those who unlocked, locked up and provided Sacristy cover while Fr Sean was on holiday.

Farewell Cathy

There will be no 9am Mass on Saturday, 1st September instead we will be celebrating a Mass of Thanksgiving at 12noon here at St Peter’s followed by a bring-and-share lunch at Holy Trinity Church (Groves Room) Granville Road, N4. All welcome.

Cardinal expresses sorrow and shame about abuse in the Church

Cardinal Vincent has written in response to the letter from Pope Francis on the abuse of children in the Church. In the letter, the Cardinal expresses sorrow and shame, saying: ‘I am so sorry for the hurt that has been caused, primarily to those whose lives have been radically damaged by childhood abuse, to their families, and to those who know personally a deep sense of trust that has been betrayed. I am utterly ashamed that this evil has, for so long, found a place in our house, our Church. This evil has particular abhorrence because not only is it a terrible abuse of power, but also because, in its evil, it both employs and destroys the very goodness of faith and trust in God. As a Father in this House, I bear this shame in a direct way, for it is the direct responsibility of a father to protect his household from harm, no matter how difficult and complex that might be.’ The Pope’s letter is addressed to all Catholics and we ask you to take time to read it and reflect on it. Copies of the Cardinal’s letter and the letter from the Holy Father can be found on the Newsletter Stand and both can also be accessed here and here.

SEEDs

Our Saturday Club that brings together people with learning difficulties, their families and friends will next meet on Saturday 1st September, 2-4pm at St Peter-in-Chains School Hall. Hope to see you there! Debbie, Derek, Mary and Kayte 0777 939 4424.

Prayer intentions to St Anthony

As I walk over 400km in 20 days, I would like to take your prayers to the Saint himself. If you have any prayer intentions that you would like me to pray while I walk, to light a candle for and ask for St Anthony’s, St Francis and Mother Mary’s intercesson, Please send them to praywithstanthony@gmail.com If you would like to offer a donation which will go towards the church building works please give a donation in the box at the back of the church or on my crowdfunding page.

SEEDs joins Faith and Light – March 2017

Our parish SEEDs community has now become part of the international family of Faith and Light. These photos by Kayte Brimacombe show us with some of their members who travelled from many different parts of the UK to be with us earlier this month.

It was a very memorable and happy afternoon and there was a wonderful spirit of being at one with each other.

SEEDs meets at St Peter in Chains Infant school hall every first Saturday of the month, 2-4pm – everyone welcome! We are particularly grateful to all the volunteers who help, including the parish Confirmation Group.
