FROM FR TIM
SUMMERTIME: Although the weather seems to be taking a turn for the worse, all the schools have now broken up and we may legitimately move into holiday mode. As usual there will be no 7.00am Mass during August, but we will retain it for the coming week. Please note that from this weekend St Mary’s has the summer timetable of just one Mass on Sunday mornings at 10.00am.
Lady Chapel: Further to the note last week, Lady Chapel will be closed off from next weekend, though the benches in the aisle will be available on Sundays. The work will take three or four months. Mass will continue as usual, but if the workmen are on site, the Rosary will have to be suspended.
For last weeks notice click here
RCIA (Journey in Faith): A reminder for any interested parties to provide the parish office with your details.
Cooking in the monastery: Unfortunately the circumstances of Mary, Sarah Eccleston’s sister, have changed and she will no longer be able to continue cooking for us from the middle of next month. We are therefore looking for someone to take Mary’s place and job share with Sarah. Anyone interested please contact Fr Rector (Andrew Burns) at the monastery.
Toddler Group are looking for volunteers to help at Monday group from 10.00am. If you are interested please contact the parish office. A DBS will be required.

Cantors needed at 11am Mass
Enabling every child and adult to encounter Jesus
Please can everyone using the car park take extra care and adhere to the NO PARKING signs. Cars are regularly blocking access routes and parking on double yellow lines obstructing the free flow of traffic and pedestrians.
- recently the concrete bollard which had only just been replaced was bumped into;
- the wooden flower beds outside the Monastery was severely damaged, after so much hard work had gone into replanting them,
- cars are constantly being scraped.
In most of these cases NO-ONE has informed the monastery that they have caused any damage. Please park responsibly and manoeuvre carefully to avoid damaging any property.
The drama of the Mass
A new website www.thedramaofthemass.com has been created by the artistic creator of the 1967 opening celebrations of the Metropolitan Cathedral.
The website includes photos, videos of the events leading up to the opening and the opening itself.
Becoming a Dementia friendly parish - From Fr. Tim
From St. Mary's Newsletter 22nd & 23rd July 2017
Becoming a Dementia Friendly Parish: I would like to congratulate Ann O’Neill for organising the Dementia Information Session last Monday evening and thank you all for the wonderful turnout. We have something very positive developing here and it is my hope that we can all work together to support our parishioners living with dementia and their carers, to enable them continue to come to church for as long as possible. In conjunction with Dementia Friends UK we will continue to provide information and ‘Dementia Fact Sheets’ at the back of church and keep you informed of any further developments in our own community. In the meantime, if you need any further information, please contact Ann in the parish office. You will also find a wealth of information on the Dementia Friends website at: www.dementiafriends.org
