HOMELESS SUNDAY, 28th JANUARY. Homelessness is a huge problem in our communities and continues to rise at an alarming rate.

This collection will be divided between Christian Kitchen and Caritas Anchor House.
“Your thoughtfulness is a gift I will always treasure”. Together we have journeyed, cried, laughed and celebrated. I shall never forget these. I shall never forget the love, kindness and support which you have shown me, and of course your tolerance and forgiveness of my many imperfections in the short time we have been together. You have helped me become a better man and a better Priest. I praise and thank God for the privilege of journey in faith with you. I thank you for your support in my priestly ministry. I truly appreciate all the lovely cards with beautiful words and the thoughtful gifts. May God bless you with his love and goodness. You will always hold a warm spot in my heart. I will miss you very much. To Fr. Kevin and to all who minister, your service and mentoring is truly appreciated and valued. To all parishioners, thank you. It’s goodbye for now, but we will meet again. You will be remembered in my prayers and I beg you to remember me in yours. I leave you and I love you. May God bless us! “I thank God each time I think of you, and when I pray for you, I pray with joy.” (Philippians 1:3)

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.
