Church campaigns, needs and good causes
Pope Francis met with fossil fuel CEOs and their major investors in the Vatican. In very clear terms, he told them, “Faced with a climate emergency, we must take action accordingly.” See Vatican website (link) for details.
The Way Prayer group will be making a ‘mini’ pilgrimage to St Richard of Chichester on Saturday 6th July. We will meet at the statue of St Richard outside of the Cathedral at 11:15am for a tour and prayers at the shrine and then Mass at St Richard’s Catholic Church at 12:15pm. Then a picnic lunch and more relaxed social time afterwards. There is a train that leaves Worthing at 10:25am which gets there in plenty of time. All are welcome, just remember to bring your lunch!

Differences add richness: St Paul saw the Church as being a corporate body: various people, each with unique identities, talents, different skills and abilities, all contributing to bringing the Good News to others. Our differences became evident early in our marriage; these differences can be problematic or add richness to our relationship. The outcome depends on whether our choices are selfish or ‘us’ focussed (http://www.twoinoneflesh.org.uk)
Our diocese has a well-established Network with many trained and experienced spiritual directors. These individuals are available to accompany people on their faith
journey. If you would like more information on spiritual guidance, or the Network, please visit the website www.abdiocese.org.uk
The next one is one Thursday 16th May: refreshments from 6.30pm. From 7.00pm: prayer, talks, Adoration, confessions.
All men welcome.
If you wish to contribute greenery or flowers (white, yellow or purple), please bring to the church on Holy Thursday (18th April) by 10.00am.

You may have accidentally removed a hymn book from the church … We’ve all done it!
If you have one (or more!) hymn book(s) at home, do please return to the church. Hymn books are expensive and we prefer not to have to buy more. Thank you. ☺
There will be a choir practice in the church at 3.00pm on Saturday 2nd March. We will look at music for Ash Wednesday, 10th March, and 24th March. We may over run on the 1-hour rule by a bit as we need to learn/polish ‘A People’s New Mass’ setting and ‘God So Loved the World’ (Stainer).
