Feast of St Peter and St Paul

We celebrate this Feast this weekend and bring to a close the Year dedicated to St Paul to mark the 2000th anniversary of his birth.

With our Parish being dedicated to St Peter this is the nearest we have to a Patronal Feast Day. Although we have no extra events this weekend we can take the opportunity that this Feast provides to reflect on the example and inspiration of these two great Apostles in order that we too can bring the Good News of Jesus Christ to others.

Parish Matters

Unconfirmed minutes of the Parish Pastoral Council Meeting held on 10 June are now displayed on the middle notice board. A number of topics were discussed most of which related to ‘Communications’. The possibility of an outdoor notice board was discussed and also the possibility of a ‘welcome leaflet’ with some text in different languages. Your thoughts on these and other matters in the minutes are welcome.

Most years we have had a Parish AGM on an evening at about this time of year. The attendance has not been very significant so this year I propose in agreement with the PPC that we try having the AGM on a Saturday morning after the holidays and the planned date is Saturday 3 October. Further details nearer the time.

Finally, I would still welcome your thoughts and feedback on the topics I raised in my homily on the Feast of Corpus Christi about whether we can continue Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament on a Thursday in its current form or whether we need to make some changes and also about the possibility of having Communion under both kinds more often.

Thank You

  1. Fr Tom O’Reilly has written to say how much he enjoyed his visit to St Peter’s last weekend. He is very grateful for the number of people who agreed to receive copies of The Far East and for the very generous second collection of £772.89. There are a few copies of The Far East left if you didn't get one last weekend.
  2. To those who made the Walsingham Pilgrimage possible. To Clive Scranney who organised the coach and to Father David and his Vocations Team for putting together the programme for the day. Also to all those who prayed for good weather!

Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults

We hope to begin this programme again in the autumn. The programme is for adults seeking baptism, or reception into the Catholic Church, or the completion of Sacraments of Initiation missed for various reasons in earlier life. A form is available at the back of church for people to ‘register an interest’ so that we have an indication of the likely level of demand.

We would also be very happy to hear from anyone who has ‘lost contact’ with the Church and would like to come back to active membership. In some cases RCIA maybe a suitable help in doing this, however each situation will be considered on its own merits.
