FROM FR TIM
CONGRATULATIONS TO FR JIMMY SMALE C.Ss.R.:
He celebrates the Golden Jubilee of his Ordination this weekend. He will have celebrated Mass at the Carmel in Allerton on Saturday morning, the day itself, and he is celebrating the 7.00am on Monday morning in Bishop Eton: the Mass he has so often said over the years.
ADOREMUS: It is now all stations go in preparation for great event in Liverpool next weekend. We hope that all our delegates will have an inspiring time at the Congress and look forward to hearing from them. They will be commissioned at the 11.00am Mass at St Mary’s and 6.00pm Mass here at Bishop Eton.
Please remember there are umpteen fringe events (please see the leaflets) including our own at Bishop Eton:
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. There will be an opportunity to get-together in the hall after.
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.
Exposition: In preparation for the Congress there will be Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament from 11.00am until the noon Mass each day during the coming week.
Comings and Goings: Fr Andrew is in Cardiff this weekend with Marriage Encounter. Otherwise we are all in residence for the time being.
SVP monthly collection will take place after all Masses today. Thank you for your generosity.
There will be NO Parish Coffee Morning after the 10.00am Mass today.
The theme of this year's Education Sunday (9th September) is Ephphatha - Be Opened!'. The Bishops have invited our young people to come to Mass in their school uniform to show the special link between the Catholic community and our schools. There will be a second collection to support the work of Catholic schools.
DBS/Safeguarding: Kris will not be available to process DBS forms/ID or online verifications for the next few months. Anyone who still has a DBS to process can contact the Safeguarding team at LACE to arrange an appointment on 522 1103.

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.
“My advice is never to let the day end without making peace in the family. ‘And how am I going to make peace? By getting down on my knees? No! Just by a small gesture, a little something, and harmony within your family will be restored. Just a little caress, no words are necessary. But do not let the day end without making peace in your family’.
(Amoris Laetitia 104).
Tonight, think over your day and your relationships with your family if there’s someone you should reconcile with before bed go and do it!
KNIGHTS OF ST COLUMBA:

Perfumed Rosary Beads
St John Vianney’s Parish Sister, Sister Mary, who is now housebound, makes ‘real’ Rosary beads from real rose petals thus producing perfumed beads. She buys the accessories from overseas and then takes a couple of months preparing the crushed rose petals, until ready for beading. Sister then hand assembles the beads, the chains and crucifix complete with their presentation box, they are so blessed! Sister produces these to help raise much needed funds for those in Bangladesh who have had their villages and churches destroyed by floods. A set costs £10 and are available by ringing the Parish Office of St John Vianney, Halewood.

Kerala Floods - An SVP Appeal
Terrible floods have been taking place in Kerala in southern India. Hundreds of people have been killed and many more are missing; countless homes have been washed away and the monsoon season is set to continue until early September.
Kerala is the most Christian state in India – it has more churches than any other region.
The leading Catholic volunteering charity, the St Vincent de Paul Society (SVP), is very active there and they are doing great work helping the victims of the flood in local communities.
However, they desperately need funds.
Please contribute to the SVP’s Kerala appeal.
To donate visit www.svp.org.uk, telephone 020 7703 3030 or send
cheques made out to SVP (write ‘Kerala appeal’ on the back) to SVP,
Romero House, 55 Westminster Bridge Road, London SE1 7JB.
Please remember our sisters and brothers in Kerala in your prayers.
Thank you for your help and support.
