Pope Francis’ Message : protect & care for each other. On 24 May 2015 Pope Francis released his encyclical, Laudato Si – Care of our common home, a landmark invitation for the Church, for political leaders and for every one of us as we reflect on the Holy Father’s encouragement to live simply and in solidarity with the poor.
To read the encyclical follow this link:
In Laudato Si Pope Francis asks us to protect and care for each other and the earth: the precious home that we all share. Join Catholics worldwide to ensure that the encyclical’s message reaches world leaders in this important year.
Please remember in your prayers the young people from our parish who will be confirmed at Arundel Cathedral next Sunday 10th May.
FR CHRIS. SOME BAD NEWS I’M AFRAID!
1. As you can see the Dry Rot in the entrance has proved to be far more extensive than at first thought.
2. Also, the East Roof of the South Transept (over the Blessed Sacrament Chapel) has also been found to be in need of replacement.
All of which is going to cost many thousands of pounds.
If you would like to make a donation online using your debit card, you can use the BT MyDonate tool which can be accessed here (link).
As part of our jubilee celebrations the 150 days of prayer project has begun. Please write any prayer, intention, intersession you wish on the labels provided and stick them to the sheets on the board in the social area.
Leave as many prayers, etc as you wish between now and 1st September.
Re-use old carpet Carpets have a huge environmental impact so if you have old offcuts, it’s worth making the most of them. They’re great for lining cupboards, pet baskets or the boot of the car, or for doormats and pipe lagging. Small pieces are also handy to put under plant pots, so they don’t damage the surface of windowsills. Provided by Friends of the Earth http://www.foe.co.uk/
