Dear Parishioners, we had a good start with our Youth Club last Tuesday with almost 50 turning up. Thanks to families for supporting this. They will all meet again as a large group this Tuesday at 6.30pm to 8.00pm and then we will divide into the Junior and Senior Youth Group, so the Junior Youth Group will meet on their own on Tuesday 5th October at 6.30pm and the Senior Youth Café Group will meet on Tuesday 12th at 6.30pm to 8.00pm. Thanks to all our helpers. We also had the meeting with the Headteachers to look at dates for the Sacraments. We will be writing to all the parents with the dates of the parent’s meetings and Commitment Masses as well as using the Passport to Faith…. Fr Tom

Make an Act of Spiritual Communion: “My Jesus, I believe that You are present in the Most Holy Sacrament. I love You above all things, and I desire to receive You into my soul. Since I cannot at this moment receive You sacramentally, come at least spiritually into my heart. I embrace You as if You were already there and unite myself wholly to You. Never permit me to be separated from You.”
Pray As You Go is a daily prayer session, designed to go with you wherever you go, to help you pray whenever you find time. A new prayer session is produced every day of the working week and one session for the weekend. It is not a ‘Thought for the Day’, a sermon or a bible-study, but rather a framework for your own prayer. Lasting between ten and thirteen minutes, it combines music, scripture and some questions for reflection. The style of prayer is based on Ignatian Spirituality. It is produced by Jesuit Media Initiatives, with material written by a number of Jesuits, both in Britain and further afield, and other experts in the spirituality of St Ignatius of Loyola. Although the content is different every day, it keeps to the same basic format.
