Donations to Parish/Standing Orders
During this time of uncertainty, the Parish is going to be hit very hard financially. The usual rents that we receive for those hiring the parish property and also the income that would normally come in through the collection have ceased.

If you do not already have a Direct Debit or Standing Order set up payable to the Parish could you please set up a Standing Order with your bank to ensure the Parish continues to receive the money you would normally put in the collection.

Thank you for your continued generosity  in helping the Parish to meet our financial commitments.
MESSAGE FROM FR FRANCIS - Saturday 28th March 2020

My dear Parishioners!

Peace be with you!
 
I would like to share with you a few words of encouragement and spiritual support in this very difficult time when we are separated physically from each other.
Of course, we are still united in the Lord as the Parish. I miss you in the church around the altar of the Lord. It is very sad for me to celebrate the Sacrifice of the Mass without you.
I assure you about my great love and affection to you.
 I pray with you and on your behalf and hope that soon this calamity will be over.
Meanwhile do please pray more at your homes and stay close to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary.
Watch the Mass online, make the Spiritual Communion, pray Rosary, Litanies, the Divine mercy Chaplet,
Meditate on the Stations of the Cross, read the Holy Scripture – especially on the Passion etc.
Tomorrow will be a special day of Rededication of England to Mary as Her Dowry.
Please make the Act of Entrustment to Mary on 12 pm together with all Catholics in England, you may watch our Bishop Philip on line at the same time.
Simply  Pray – Hope – and Don’t Worry ( words of St Padre Pio )
Our Lord said – “ Do not be afraid, I am with you until the end of time “
And we all can say – “ Jesus I trust in You “.
We love You. We trust and need you. Stay with us and help us through these times of uncertainty and sorrow.

Ave Maria!

Yours in Christ
Fr Francis Sasinowski
