What can we find out about making our air cleaner on this
Do we let our cars idle for too long?
Do we make short car journeys when we could have walked or cycled?
Maybe spend a moment looking into this today and help spread the word about what we can all do to help ourselves, our communities and our planet to 'breath better'.

We will be making a special ("2nd") collection at all Masses for a week, starting on Sat 26th June, where there will be a 2nd basket as you arrive at church.
Below you will see details of the charity, its history and a link to the Vatican site for even more information.
Thank you for the ongoing generosity of our wonderful community to all our regular and annual collections, most of which have been cancelled for a second year due to the pandemic.
If you would prefer to donate online then you can use this link to go straight to the charity website:

The Peters Pence Collection unites us in solidarity to the Holy See and its works of charity to those in need. Your generosity allows the Pope to respond to our suffering brothers and sisters with promptness, love, and compassion, so God’s people will not feel alone in their time of misfortune.

The Collection derives its name from an ancient custom. In the ninth-century, King Alfred the Great collected money – “pence” or pennies – from landowners as financial support for the Pope. Today, the Peter’s Pence Collection supports the Pope’s philanthropy by giving the Holy Father the means to provide emergency assistance to those in need because of natural disaster, war, oppression, and disease.

Pope Francis' Prayer for protection from Coronavirus.
Please continue to pray for all Governments across the world, that they will make the best decisions for their people.
Pray for the countries who are struggling with taking control of the virus and with vaccinating their citizens against COVD.

Pope Francis' Prayer for protection from Coronavirus.
O Mary, you shine continuously on our journey as a sign
of salvation and hope.
We entrust ourselves to you, Health of the Sick.
At the foot of the Cross you participated in Jesus’ pain,
with steadfast faith.
You, Salvation of the Roman People, know what we need.
We are certain that you will provide, so that,
as you did at Cana of Galilee,
joy and feasting might return after this moment of trial.
Help us, Mother of Divine Love,
to conform ourselves to the Father’s will
and to do what Jesus tells us:
He who took our sufferings upon Himself,
and bore our sorrows to bring us,
through the Cross, to the joy of the Resurrection.
We seek refuge under your protection, O Holy Mother of God.
Do not despise our pleas – we who are put to the test
– and deliver us from every danger, O glorious and blessed Virgin.

The EU Settlement Scheme deadline is 30 June 2021.
