Hope this finds you well.
Remember ~ no need now to book for the Vigil or Sunday Masses. Just come along. Okay, we’re a church full of masked singers, but it is great that we are all allowed to sing again. Separate sets of hymn books will be made available for each Mass as from this weekend coming.
Invite family members, friends, fellow parishioners to come along to Mass with you. And only one name now per household required for Test & Protect, so things will be a lot easier at the door, thankfully.
Ten young people from the USA and Wales will be forming a NET team for ten months to minister in our schools and parishes and encourage our young people in their faith and belonging to the Church. We look forward to inviting them along to St Andrew’s. NET is appealing for ‘Host Homes. Can you help? It would be for a one-week time frame for a minimum of two people, with breakfast, packed lunch and dinner. They usually leave in the morning and return at dinner time. If you can help, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
In this Year of St Joseph, please visit our sleeping St Joseph statue. You can write out a petition and place it under the statue. Let St Joseph ‘sleep on it’.
We’ll be looking at the parish diary soon for dates for First Reconciliation (P3), First Holy Communion (P4) and Confirmation (P7). Enrolment forms will soon be available for P3 and P7. The list of enrolled names for last year’s P3 will automatically roll over into this year’s P4 for First Holy Communion. So, no need for P4 families to worry about having to re-enroll.
Enjoy what remains of the school holidays.
Have a good week!
