Redemptorist comings and goings: During the past few days there has been a gathering at Hawkstone Hall (Shropshire) of Redemptorists and their lay associates who are involved in religious publishing around the world. Clearly, it has been a huge success. A number of the delegates have been staying at Bishop Eton on their way to and from the congress. Also our Provincial Council will be here on Monday for one of its regular meetings.

Regarding the members of our own community, some of those who are entirely dependent on the lift will be moving to Hawkstone for the next couple of weeks because the lift is due to be completely overhauled, so there will be fewer  priests concelebrating the noon Mass each day at Bishop Eton.

And finally, please keep up your prayers for Fr Barrie. He was discharged last Tuesday, but had to return to the Royal the following day. We hope he will soon be home for good.

Flame. Paul Murphy and many of our young people are attending the great youth event in London this weekend. We hope and pray that they and the expected 8,000 participants will be greatly blessed. Fr Richard is also going for the Saturday, but will be back for the Sunday Masses.

Four young Redemptorist priests were ordained in Zimbabwe on 14 February. Check it out - click here

Visit of our Provincial Council. Fr McAinsh and his two consultors (Fr. Richard & Fr Gerard Mulligan) will be at Bishop Eton on Tuesday and Wednesday to discuss the future with us. Please take note that we may be extra occupied on those two days and please pray for God’s blessing during this time.

Congratulations to Fr. Richard who has been elected Vicar Provincial Superior and will be on the OPC and Fr. Tim who has been elected to the EPC.

Fr Barrie returns to the community tomorrow, Monday 15, which is a wonderful Christmas present for us. He has completed his course of treatment. Now we hope that he will be able to have the original operation reversed sometime in the New Year. Again he thanks everyone for all the prayers and good wishes.

Today the "Year of Consecrated Life" begins and will run until 2 Feb 2016. Pope Francis is asking us all to celebrate and pray for consecrated life; become more aware of and consider joining consecrated life. We have plenty of examples around, the Redemptorists, the SND sisters and the Focolare movement. Please keep consecrated people in your prayers especially during this year.

From Fr. Richard : I shall be in Spain making a 100 mile pilgrimage walk to Santiago de Compostela to give thanks to God for our Redemptorist Vocations, and to pray for vocations for the future. Please join us in prayer for this intention, 30 August—7 September. If you check out the website, , you can follow us each day.

Fr. Richard speaks about why he and a group of others will be walking the last 100 miles of the Camino



Prayer for Redemptorist Vocations


we thank you for the blessings you have given us

in Christ our Redeemer.

Let your Spirit overshadow your people,

making your gentle invitation heard in many hearts.

Lord of the Harvest,

bless the Redemptorist family

throughout the world with many vocations,

so that those in greatest need

will experience the Good News of Redemption.

May your love grow among us

and your kingdom come,

through Christ our Lord.

Stained Glass, taken from the house in Sunderland, has been fitted in the windows of the Monastery Oratory. They depict St Alphonsus, St Gerard and St Clement. I have taken pictures which are on the Redemptorist website.

Fr Richard C.Ss.R. wants to thank the parishioners most sincerely for their generosity in response to the appeal made for the Formation of our Redemptorist Students. £983.34 was received (not including Gift Aid). God bless you and your loved ones.
