Money Matters Last Sunday £584.95 was given at the Offertory, with a further £113.73 donated to CAFOD. Today is being kept as the annual 'Day for Life', and there will be a retiring collection for Life Charities.
The sale of St.Cecilia's Church has now been completed, for £292,725 net. We are most grateful to our Treasurer, David Richardson, for having dealt with this matter.
Confirmation I wonder whether any teenagers are interested in Confirmation in Eastertide next year? If so, we will begin preparation in the early Autumn. Candidates must be at least thirteen years old at the time of the Confirmation. I need to know fairly quickly, because the Bishop needs to agree a date in the next few weeks.
Team Felix 'would like to thank everybody who supported the Celebration Lunch last Sunday. We made a profit of £170.0, which is for parish funds.'
Association of the Family of Jesus & Mary
A 'Support Group'? Catherine Richardson
writes 'On Friday 1st July at 2.0pm there will be a meeting at the Presbytery for anyone interested in discussing ways in which we might reach out to some of the more isolated members of our parish family through, for example, visiting them at home. If you would like to come along for a cup of tea and a chat about what such a group might be able to offer you would be very welcome. If you would like to come, but are unable to attend, please let me know and I will keep you informed.'
Coming into church today, I expect you were as glad as I am to see things back to normal! And I hope that you are as pleased as I am with the result. I feel that it was worth waiting for. Especially good, I think, are the new Altar supports - such an improvement on the old dark concrete and gravel ones. I think our Honorary Architect, Mr.Neil Birdsall, is to be especially congratulated on their design - and on that of the new Tabernacle support too - all based on the original stone mouldings to be found in the Sanctuary. I wanted this new work to look as if it was simply part of the original 1912 design of the church.
Of course this is only the completion of Part One of the scheme : still
to come are the pair of stone ambos (or reading desks) incorporating the fine
1930's carvings of the Four Evangelists from the former stone pulpit. These
have now been disengaged from the 'whatever' in the
The removal of the stonework from the
I'm sure that someone is going to ask who has paid for all this work : the remodeling of the Sanctuary is, of course, our project for the ALIVE IN FAITH initiative, under which 25% of what has been and is being given comes back to the parish to finance its particular project. So none of the money spent has come out of normal parish funds. So thank you those who supported Alive in Faith!
