WALK5 PRAY5 DONATE5
As a pilgrimage to Lourdes is not possible this year, the Diocese of Shrewsbury has arranged a virtual pilgrimage on 31st July, 2021. The Diocese is encouraging parishioners to Walk5 Pray5 Donate5 throughout July (please see attached flyer). Parishioners can share their journeys through social media @shrewsburyvirtualwalktolourdes on Facebook and Instagram.
TRAINING FOR THE PRIESTHOOD
Please see attached flyer on how you can help Priests to train for their vocation.
OFFERTORY AND GIVING TO THE CHURCH DURING THIS DIFFICULT TIME
For those Parishioners who normally give in the collection at Mass and wish to help the Parish at this time, an online donation page to allow you to donate is available on the link below.
Please be aware that a minimum donation of £5 is requested if giving in this way.
The page can also be used to set up a regular monthly donation, and you can also Gift Aid your donation to help the Parish further.
If you want to Gift Aid your donation, please tick the box shown on the screen even if you have previously completed a Gift Aid Declaration form in favour of the Parish for regular giving made by Offertory Envelope or Standing Order.
Thank you for your support.
SUBSCRIPTIONS TO MAGNIFICAT AND THE CATHOLIC HERALD
As there will be no public Masses for an indefinite period starting this weekend and an increasing number of people are self-isolating there will undoubtedly be a substantial number of your parishioners who will be unable to get to Church for several weeks. To help them follow the Mass, daily prayers, reading, etc. at home, and also keep up with the weekly church news we are offering free access to Magnificat online, and for those who would like the Print Edition there is a special one-off 4-month subscription to Magnificat and/or a 3-month subscription to The Catholic Herald at substantially discounted and affordable prices to ensure that the maximum number of people can take advantage.
So that as many people as possible can take advantage of the free and/or discounted offers can you please make your parishioners aware of these options and how to order in any way you are able? They can only be ordered by telephoning Margaret on 020 7448 3607 or Paul on 020 7448 3618 between 9.30am and 5pm Monday to Friday.
Below are special prices to help people over this difficult period and orders will need to be placed before Easter:
Magnificat 4 months April to July (including the Holy Week special issue) for £14
Catholic Herald 3 months (13 weeks) for £25
Both Catholic Herald and Magnificat (as above) £36
For free access to Magnificat online, log in at www.magnificat.com/free
Although we do expect that many people will still go to Church for personal prayer, we do hope that these special concessions will help people who cannot get there, and also those who want to follow the Masses, prayers, readings, etc. feel that they can still share in the life of the Church.
Thank you and best wishes
OUR PARISH CLERGY
Reverend Father Philip Atkinson (Parish Priest) and Reverend
Deacon Antony Zidan.
