On Saturday 4th November 2017 just after the monthly Mass for peace and justice in the Holy Land, Andrew Sharples gave an organ recital.
He began with Jeremiah Clarke's Trumper Voluntary, followed by Rawsthorne's Preude on Londonderry Air, the Cholal introduction and toccata from Boellman's Suit Githique, Bach's prelude on 'Dearest Jesu, we are here', Mendelssohn's War March of the Priests, Vierne's Carillon de Westminster, Yon's Toccatina for flutes, concluding with Toccata in F (Symphony5) by Widor.
The retiring collection for Friends of the Holy Land raised £220.
Thank you to all that contributed and to Andrew for his time and talents.
RYM and HOPE Cath Soc Homeless Mission 21st November
We are really happy to announce that we're doing a homeless mission in Liverpool City Centre on Tuesday 21st November.
Helen (Hope) has got some donations of food and toiletries to distribute, and Natasha and Anita (RYM) have been given a couple of generous donations so have bought eight brand new sleeping bags and have got some other donations of clothing, shoes and gloves to give out.
It's a wonderful opportunity to get together as young Catholics (though of course if you're not Catholic, or young for that matter, you're very welcome!) to live out our faith. It's a great chance to just get out there and meet people where they are, show a little kindness and listen to peoples' stories.
You can meet us at Hope University (under the arch) at 6:15pm (literally around the corner from Bishop Eton), or if you're closer to town, meet us at the Cathedral at 7pm. We'll begin with a prayer then head out to meet people and give out our donations.
Next Sunday is Youth Sunday. There will be a retiring collection for Animate Youth Ministry (the diocesan youth service) after all Masses on Sunday 26th December. Gift aid envelopes are available in the porch.
The theme for this year's Youth Sunday is 'Something to say'
Something to Say?
In the lead up to the Synod on Youth, Faith and Vocational Discernment to be held next year, Pope Francis said,
"Every young person has something to say...something to say to priests, sisters, bishops and even the Pope.'
He is encouraging young people to turn to the Church and share their thoughts, cares and concerns. It is a chance for those in positions of influence to take advantage of the opportunity provided by this synod, to encourage young people to make their voice heard as we too believe they have something to say to their parish priests, to their chaplains, to the Church in general. By making the most of this conversation it will help the Church become better at accompanying young people in their vocational discernment.
There is a website dedicated to the upcoming synod which you can find at http://youth.synod2018.va/content/synod2018/en.html . On that website there is a youth Survey - which will close on the 30th Novemeber. If you are between the ages of 16 and 29 you are invited to complete the survey. Click here to access it. (Please not the drop down menu which allows you to select the correct language for you).
DBS –Safeguarding. Letters have gone out to nearly sixty volunteers who require a recheck of their DBS to continue in their voluntary roles. Some have already been returned but there are still a large proportion outstanding. Kris will be in the office on Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 3.00pm—5.00pm until the end of November.
