THIRD SUNDAY OF ADVENT

 

SAINT VINCENT DE PAUL (SVP) The annual appeal for needy families will take place today at all Masses. The St Vincent De Paul Society will make the distribution to those in need in our Parish over the Christmas period.

 

 

DIOCESE OF BRENTWOOD. Do you support Catholic schools and the right of Catholics to send their children to them? Then we need you to make your voice heard. The Government is making a critical decision on whether to overturn the admissions cap which prevents Catholic schools from allowing all Catholic pupils attend. They have acknowledged that this policy discriminates against Catholics and promised to abandon it, now we need to tell them not to u-turn on their promise to Catholics. Visit http://catholicnews.org.uk/education-cap  or research for “Catholic Education” in your search engine to write to the Government and urge them to drop their policy which bans new Catholic schools.

 

WHIPPS CROSS HOSPITAL warmly welcome you to join in their Carol Service on Saturday 23rd December from 4- 6pm. Meet at the prayer room at 3:45.

 

CHRISTMAS PROGRAMME IS NOW AVAILABLE IN THE CHURCH PORCH.

NINE LESSONS AND CAROLS takes place this Sunday afternoon at 4.00 pm in Brentwood Cathedral. It is a beautiful service and a perfect way to enter the spiritual mysteries of Christmas. Nine Lessons and Carols will be led by Bishop Alan, the Cathedral choir and readers from across the diocese. This year, it will be recorded by BBC Radio Essex and broadcast on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day. This is a wonderful opportunity to witness to the wider community in Essex and beyond. All welcome. For more information please visit Brentwood Cathedral Website: www.cathedral-brentwood.org

 

ENTHUSIASTIC GARDENERS REQUIRED to help develop the presbytery garden so that it can be used and enjoyed by parishioners to grow produce in the summer months. If you can give some time please contact the Live Simply Group via the parish office.

 

PLEASE HELP.  Walsingham House at Abbotswick Funding Appeal: Target £430,000. Each year, over 5,000 young people from our schools and parishes enjoy a retreat with the Walsingham House Team. In January 2018 this work is moving to Abbotswick, a beautiful house near Brentwood, set in 14 acres of grounds. In school holidays, Abbotswick will also continue to be used by parish groups seeking a time of retreat, resting with the Lord. However, Abbotswick is in need of a significant refurbishment, and we seek your help.  Please support it as generously as you can; in the words of Bishop Alan “This project builds a prayerful and inspiring future for the young people of the Diocese.” Thank you.

LEGION OF MARY meeting will be held in the church on Thursdays after Mass at 10:15 am.  If anyone is interested they are welcome to attend.

 

RED MISSIO BOX.  Please return all your red boxes to the presbytery.  Thank you all for the continuing support for this good cause.  ~ Dolly.

 

UNABLE TO MAKE IT TO MASS? The church offers a service called Mass Link.  At 6pm Sunday Mass, via Skype, we call people who want to listen to the Mass and broadcast the Mass to them over their phones. This service is available for anyone who can't make it to Mass if you are ill or housebound.  If you would like this service, please give your number to the Parish Office and we will ring you every Sunday at 6pm to listen in!

An introductory message from BISHOP ALAN is also posted on the website.

 

********************************************************************************************************************************************************

LIVE SIMPLY.  As a parish we have started to reduce our energy consumption by switching to LED light bulbs where practicable. This is a no brainer - not only does it save us money, but more importantly helps reduce greenhouse gas emissions. This helps stem the inexorable increase in global temperatures and the misery that causes through flooding, desertification and ultimately mass migration, starvation, disease and death. Swapping out lightbulbs is one thing - but there are many ways we can all help e.g. by reducing our time in hot showers, turning off electrical appliances when not in use, insulating lofts - often free of charge - and turning down our thermostats a degree. Please discuss in your families how you can do your bit to reduce energy consumption.

 

“REJOYCE: THE LORD IS NIGHT.” As Christmas draws near, the Church emphasizes the joy which should be in our hearts over all that the birth of our Saviour means for us. The great joy of Christians is to see the day drawing near when the Lord will come again in His glory to lead them into His kingdom. The oft-repeated Veni ("Come") of Advent is an echo not only of the prophets but also of the conclusion of the Apocalypse of St. John: "Come, Lord Jesus," the last words of the New Testament. Today is known as Gaudete Sunday. The term Gaudete refers to the first word of the Entrance Antiphon, "Rejoice". Today, we emphasize our joy that Christmas is near, and we also light the rose candle on our Advent wreath.
