** Update since - we have stopped taking items**
Ukraine Appeal Reminder:
Items can be donated directly to Emersons Green Village Hall or feel free to bring them to the Church if easier for you and we will get them to the right people for you.
See the list attached to see the sorts of things needed.
The church main doors will be unlocked from approx 8am until 5pm each day but they stay open later on a Tuesday, Friday and Saturday as Mass takes place during those evenings.
(If anyone would like to bring items outside of these times, please make contact on 0117 9833939 and we can arrange to take things in at the Presbytery (the white house) next door.)

God bless you all for your generosity. This truly is Christianity in action! #PrayForUkraine

Ash Wednesday 2022
~ Day of prayer and fasting for peace 🙏

“God wants us to be brothers and not enemies.

I pray that all the parties involved refrain from any action that would cause even more suffering to the people
May the Queen of Peace preserve the world from the madness of war.

We Pray Together for peace in Ukraine”

Pope Francis.

Memorial Garden
We are pleased to have our beautiful Memorial Tablets back from the monumental masons.
We pray for all whose ashes are interred within our Garden of Remembrance & all who we remember on our memorial wall.
May their souls, and the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, Rest In Peace. Amen.

As you can see, the memorial wall tablets are now full, but we are working with the stonemasons to have additional tablets fitted later this year, so we can continue to add the names to the wall.
Plus, we have started discussions with a local firm to help us create a new communal memorial area so that we can continue to offer the choice of having ashes interred in the Church grounds for those who would like it.

More information on that as we have it.

Bishop Declan has issued a Pastoral Letter for this weekend.

Here is a copy if anyone would like to see it in advance.
