Marie Alphonsine Ghattas from Jerusalem & Mariam Bawardy from Ibillin (Galilee) are 2 Palestinian nuns from 19th century Ottoman Palestine. They will be canonised (honoured with sainthood) by Pope Francis on 17 May 2015 (Sunday) at St Peter's Basilica in Rome.

Sister Marie was an educator who founded inter alia the Rosary Sisters Schools and Sister Mariam was a Carmelite mystic. The canonisation concludes a vigilant process of beatification.

 

Christian churches & organisations who wonder at times how [best] to highlight their witness & solidarity should perhaps not underestimate the significance of an event that weaves together so many strands.

 

Also attending the canonisation will be Mahmoud Abbas, president of the PA, and the treaty recognising Palestine as a State might well be signed during this visit too.

Vocations SundayNext Sunday is the Day of Prayer for Vocations to the Priesthood and Religious Life. You will notice that the material this year features the Liverpool team (with Fr Richard). Their initiatives to help us celebrate the year of consecrated life have been appreciated nationally and so we congratulate them and pray that all their efforts will bear much fruit.

Prayer before the Blessed Sacrament. We are continuing with our Exposition each Wednesday, but once again age is taking its toll of some of those who have faithfully been part of the rota. If you are able to volunteer for half an hour, please let Kris know. We have acquired some booklets with St Alphonsus’ Visits for those who wish to use them. They will be in the front benches each Wednesday.

Thank you to all who supported the Lunch at 60 Hope Street. £818 was raised for their various projects.
