Cafod SPONSORED ‘WALK FOR WATER’:
A big thank you to the many parishioners who joined in the walk, supported the ‘pop-up' cafe or sponsored the walkers. The weather was perfect and our sincere thanks go to John and Veronica for their amazing hospitality. Sponsorship money will again be collected after this weekend masses, or you can place donations in an envelope clearly marked 'Cafod Sponsored Walk' and post through the presbytery door.
On behalf of Missio, Angela Bailey would like to thank all parishioners who contributed to Missio last year, whether Red Boxes or sending directly to Missio HQ. The final total from our parish was £2,830.28 which considering the difficult year was magnificent. Thank you very much.
Portsmouth Diocese- Life in the Spirit Seminars:
At the first Pentecost the disciples changed from being fearful and looking inward to being full of joy and looking outward. The Holy Spirit gave them courage, words and great joy. Pope Francis has asked that we bring the Life in the Spirit Seminars to all, to enable us all to have a greater capacity to speak about our joy in the risen Lord. The seminars are online using Zoom, they start after Pentecost on Thursday 27th and run for seven weeks. Timing is to join from 7pm for a start at 7.15pm with an end each time at 8.45. Participants will want to use some recommended scripture passages in their prayer during the weeks between seminars. For more information and to register see www.pffm.org.uk/lifeinthespirit
