Readers & Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion

A happy and thriving parish like ours needs plenty of readers and Eucharistic Ministers to keep the wheels of the Masses well-oiled. If you would like to be considered for one of these ministries, and there’s nothing preventing you, please email Fr Terry (or give him a hand-written note) and we will be in touch. Readers will be asked, as you will understand, to have a dry-run to ensure that they are comfortable with what’s involved. Don’t be shy! Many thanks.

It’s all about Jesus!

The only reason for my being killed, is that I have taught the doctrine of Christ. I thank God it is for this reason that I die. I believe that I am telling the truth before I die. I know you believe me and I want to say to you all once again – ask Christ to help you become happy. I obey Christ. After Christ’s example, I forgive my persecutors. I do not hate them. I ask God to have pity on all and I hope my blood will fall on my fellow men as a fruitful rain.

St Paul Miki (1564 – 1597)
