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.

Renewal and the Restructuring of our diocese
Stewards of the Gospel: Up-Date on the Process
Steward of the Gospel - All parishioners are warmly invited to attend the next Renewal Parish Meeting on Monday 10th September 2018 in the church at 7pm. This will be an opportunity to discuss how we can help our priest and the parish by putting parishioners ideas for Renewal into action. In preparation for this meeting, a copy of the Renewal Action Plan Targets for Working Party Groups - 2018 & Beyond is now available on the noticeboard inside the porch. Please take a look and write your name in the space provided on the form to show which Working Party you would like to part of at the Parish Renewal meeting.
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.
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)? Join us for this beautiful prayer.
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!
