THE NOVENA FOR OUR LADY OF PERPETUAL SUCCOUR: Thank you for supporting this wonderful event in such great numbers. On your behalf, I thank Fr Charlie Corrigan and Brothers Michael and Royston for all their efforts, which I know will continue to bear fruit in many ways. For myself, I can only reiterate what I said last weekend: the experience in Clapham was utterly rewarding. I found the experience of returning to the place of my birth and upbringing and being able to share and minister far more moving than I had anticipated.

Fr Andrew has returned from the Marriage Encounter Council meeting in Italy.

I will be away again for the first part of this week, this time in Hampshire, facilitating a meeting of the Catholic military chaplains.

The Whitechapel Centre

At the Whitechapel Centre, homeless people are able to take a shower and wash their clothes. However, a lot of the time their underwear, socks and trainers have to be thrown away. The Whitechapel Centre would be very grateful for any donations of men's and women's underwear (smaller sizes), socks and trainers especially size 5/6 women or size 9 men).

Also although we all enjoy the sunshine it can lead to dehydration, heat exhaustion and sun stroke for people who are rough sleeping. The Whitechapel centre would welcome donations of bottled water and sun cream for us to distribute to their clients. Thank you!

Pope Francis: Reflections on The Joy of Love (Amoris Laetitia)

Each week we will be providing an excerpt on the Pope's letter for you to read and reflect on. The reflections have been made available by the Archdiocese’s  Adult Faith Formation department.


"Families who lovingly accept the difficult trial of a child with special needs are greatly to be admired. They render the Church and society an invaluable witness of faithfulness to the gift of life. In these situations, the family can discover, together with the Christian community new approaches, new ways of acting, a different way of understanding and identifying with others, by welcoming and caring for the mystery of the frailty of human life."

(Amoris Laetitia 47)


This week as a family share what life may be like for someone you may know or in your family/school/parish who has a disability or learning difficulty and what you as a family can do to make a difference. You might like to reflect upon how as parents we enable our children to see a person’s abilities rather than disabilities?
