ADOREMUS: The Eucharistic Congress is less than two weeks away and I want to suggest that we do everything we can to help make it a success.
Next Sunday (2 September) we will have short commissioning service of our delegates at the 6.00pm Mass. If you have registered for the Congress personally, may I suggest that you come to this Mass and join the others in the commissioning ceremony?
The more representatives we have the better. For the rest, I remind you that Bishop Eton is hosting a couple of special fringe events.
Friday 7 September: Family Holy Hour at 6.00pm: It will be wonderful if we can have a tremendous turnout from both parishes. The format will be very simple and the children very much involved. Hopefully, if the weather permits, we will be able to include a Procession of the Blessed Sacrament around the grounds.
Saturday 8 September: ‘The Eucharist and the Redemptorist Charism’ Noon: Bishop Ralph Heskett, C.Ss.R. will lead the concelebrated Mass in the church and this will be followed by some refreshments and a talk by Fr Andrew Burns, C.Ss.R. in the Fisher-More Hall.
