Sr.Bridget RJM We were all greatly saddened by the death of Sr.Bridget, who died last Sunday. She was loved and respected by all who knew her, and was an outstanding religious. She will be much missed. She manifested the fruits of the Holy Spirit in a wonderful way, which made it seem so apt that she died on Pentecost Day. We send our love & sympathy to all the Sisters RJM.

 

A new Dean for the Ipswich Deanery Fr.Russell Frost, formerly our Dean, has left St.Mary Magdalen Ipswich : he is assisting at the Walsingham Shrine during the Summer, before being given a new appointment in the Autumn. The Bishop has asked me to succeed him as Dean. My appointment is immediate . I don't yet know quite what demands this will make on my time, beyond the inevitable meetings! Please remember me in your prayers.

 

Money Matters Last weekend 697.46 was given at the Offertory, and 136.77 was given to CAFOD. Next Sunday there will be a retiring collection for Catholic Life Charities.

 

Note for CWL Members Teresa writes 'The CWL are doing the refreshments after Loris Squirrell's funeral on Tuesday ; if any members are free to help with the clearing up afterwards, it would be appreciated.'

Syrian Appeal Jenny writes 'a very sincere thank you for the amazing response to this appeal. The charity have collected all the items, and were extremely grateful for the generosity of the parish, and it will make such a difference to the families arriving in Ipswich.'

 

Summer Raffle Jenny also writes ' We have started handing our raffle tickets, please try to sell as many as possible, as this is such an easy way to raise money for parish funds. The first prize is 100 and there will be at least another 15 prizes. Once you have sold them, please return counterfoils & cash either to a member of Team Felix, or through the Presbytery door. Lists are up asking for raffle prizes ; if you can help, please put your name on the list. Again, please give the prize to a member of Team Felix, or leave it in the sacristy. Queries, please phone.
