Question of the Week

Can I identify times in which Jesus has sustained me in difficult situations. How can what I receive today sustain me throughout the week ahead?

GENERAL DATA PROTECTION REGULATION (GDPR)

Due to the implementation of the above on 25th May, we are required to ask all parishioners to complete a new Consent Form. It is imperative that these forms are completed and returned to us ASAP. Thank you

FIRST HOLY COMMUNION AND CONFIRMATION

In September 2017 Pope Francis launched a new campaign in support of refugees & migrants. The share the journey campaign brings together more than 200 Catholic organisations, including CAFOD. Together we will call on our government & on all people, to play their part in welcoming & protecting people forced to flee their homes due to poverty, war, persecution, or natural disaster. The Pope’s action aims to highlight the Church’s commitment to sharing the journey of people on the move. Now world leaders must be moved to do the same as they negotiate new UN global agreements on refugees & migrants. WHAT CAN WE DO? To show solidarity with our brothers & sisters, we have been asked to ‘Share the Journey’ by joining together as parishes or communities & organising a walk. It may only be a couple of miles but the idea is to walk, talk & pray. The aim is to walk 24,900 miles around the globe. If 50 people from the Church of the Assumption walk 2 miles we take 100 off the journey. If you are unable to join the walk please sign the campaign cards, the more cards that drop on the mat in Downing Street the better.

JOIN THE PARISH IN OUR OWN ‘SHARE THE JOURNEY’ WALK SATURDAY AUGUST 18TH. LEAVING THE CAR PARK
AT 9.30AM. REFRESHMENTS ON RETURN.

If you are unable to walk a couple of miles how about several rounds of the church car park? There is a start & finish prayer on the campaign card. Cardsavailable on 11/12 August, just let the CAFOD team know how many circuits have been completed.

EXTRAORDINARY MINISTERS OF THE EUCHARIST

We are in desperate need for Ministers to take Holy Communion to the sick and housebound. If you are able to help on a rota basis please speak to Teresa Bailey who has kindly agreed to co-ordinate this very important ministry. It will involve a DBS check, (which some of you already have)

SUPERVISION OF CHILDREN

Would all parents/guardians please ensure that your children are supervised at all times whilst on church premises. The Narthex/link passage from the church to the hall is not a play area and neither are the stairs leading to the upper room. To prevent accidents, please ensure your children are supervised at all times. Thank you Parish Health and Safety Officer .
