PRAYER OF ST. FRANCIS OF ASSISI: PRAYER FOR PEACE  Lord, make me an instrument of your peace, Where there is hatred, let me sow love; where there is injury, pardon; where there is doubt, faith; where there is despair, hope; where there is darkness, light; where there is sadness, joy; O Divine Master, grant that I may seek not so much to be consoled as to console; to be understood as to understand; to be loved as to love. For it is in giving that we receive; it is in pardoning that we are pardoned; and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life. Amen.

A DAY OF REFLECTION & ENRICHMENT FOR READERS: As you know the Vicariate for Evangelisation are organising a Diocesan-wide day of Recollection and Enrichment for Readers planned for Saturday 20th October at The Becket Centre, Woodford Green.  The day will be led by Dr Marian Tolley of Shrewsbury Diocese (Marian has travelled throughout Britain running courses for Readers for many years; has a highly respected reputation for running work-shops in liturgical music; the training of deacons and for speaking on various topics relating to the liturgy).  It will cover the spiritual dimension of the ministry, including:  The Real Presence in the Word of God;  Relationship of the Liturgy of the Word to the Liturgy of the Eucharist;  Preparation;  Technical aspects/difficulties of reading the Scriptures as Proclamation;  Pointers to reading aloud;  Using a microphone and much more.   Any readers who are interested and would like a lift to the venue, let Louisa Gage know via the Parish Office. Louisa can offer up to 4 spaces, on a first come, first reserved basis and if there are any other readers who are interested in attending and able to assist with transport, please notify Louisa via the parish office, so she can coordinate arrangements with people nearer the time.


FEEDBACK ON MEETING 1ST AUG. organised after the stabbing of the young man in Tenby Court 23rd July: the format (group discussion) was to enable people to express their concerns, to talk to  other residents as  well  as local police, local  youth services, and  people  from projects  supporting young people. This meant that both the stabbing and the later shooting of the same young man on 31st, and all that has been going on here, was not addressed directly. You can view a short video about the meeting on Stella Creasy’s FB page. Watch this space as we will be taking further concrete steps in this community. (For more info contact Christine D/Chris B.)

ARE YOU AWARE that the Rosary is said weekdays morning in the Church at 9.05am (just before the morning 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!

THANK YOU LORD.  Even though I clutch my blanket and growl when the alarm rings. Thank you, Lord, that I can hear. There are many who are deaf.  Even though I keep my eyes closed against the morning light as long as possible. Thank you, Lord, that I can see. Many are blind.  Even though I huddle in my bed and put off rising. Thank you, Lord, that I have the strength to rise. There are many who are bedridden.  Even though the first hour of my day is hectic, when socks are lost, toast is burned, tempers are short, and my children are so loud. Thank you, Lord, for my family. There are many who are lonely.  Even though our breakfast table never looks like the picture in magazines and the menu is at times unbalanced.  Thank you, Lord, for the food we have. There are many who are hungry.  Even though the routine of my job often is monotonous. Thank you, Lord, for the opportunity to work. There are many who have no job.  Even though I grumble and bemoan my fate from day to day and wish my ci
