FROM FR TIM
ADOREMUS: There is no doubt that all our delegates greatly appreciated the opportunity to be part of last weekend’s unique event and I look forward to working out with them how best they can share the experience with the rest of us. At the same time the two events in Bishop Eton were well attended not only by our own parishioners, but also by some visitors from around the country. Again the responses were very favourable and I want to thank everyone who contributed to ensuring that everything went so well: the liturgies, the talks and the hospitality.
NOVENA IN IRELAND: By the time most of you read this I will be on my way to Ireland for the Novena in honour of Our Lady of Perpetual Succour in our Redemptoristine convent chapel in Dublin.
(The Novena will be streamed via the Redemptoristine webcam visit www.rednuns.com )
I will look after the two sessions each day for the next nine days and return to Liverpool on Wednesday, 26 September.
Please pray for the Lord’s blessing on this venture and in turn we will keep the two parishes in our petitions.
And this just leads me to encourage everyone to think about supporting our Perpetual Novena each Wednesday evening in Bishop Eton at 7.30pm. Numbers have diminished in recent months in spite of the special Nine Days in the summer. These devotions have provided comfort and support for countless individuals and families over the years and I hope will continue to do so into the future.
The Funeral of William Gobbin RIP will take place on Wednesday 19 September at 12.00 noon.
Bereavement Support Group meeting will be on Tuesday 18 September from 2.00pm—4.00pm in the Hughes Room.
BELL: Bishop Eton Lending Library, meet this Wednesday 19 September, in the Hughes Room 2.00pm—4.00pm. Do come along and see the selection of books, borrow and have a chat. Refreshments will be available. All welcome.

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.

Thank you for your help and support.
