Please find enclosed the Newsletter and Readings for Holy Mass this weekend. On Thursday we celebrate the Feast of the Ascension (a Holy Day, the final one before the Obligation returns to such special days). In light of this there will be three Masses celebrated, including a whole school Mass on Thursday afternoon for the children who attend Holy Spirit School. It is hoped that Rotas for our Eucharistic Ministers will be compiled shortly, and an appeal is made for parishioners to return to decorating our churches with flowers, and washing the altar linens. All of which are elements of ‘opening up’ to a new normal. It is hoped that with this a new enthusiasm and confidence will come, encouraging more people to get involved in parish life.
Please hold in prayer and thought the youngsters who are receiving their First Holy Communion this Sunday at St. Paul’s and the children from Year 6 at Holy Spirit who will receive the fulfilment of their initiation into the Catholic Faith in the Sacrament of Confirmation on Wednesday evening.
With prayerful remembrance, kindest thought and affection.
As ever, Fr. Nicholas
