Anniversary this week Sr.Celestine Fogarty (2005). May she Rest in Peace.
Teenage Group Some of our teenagers have decided to meet once a month for an activity or an excursion. Normally this will be on the first Sunday evening of the month, but next Sunday we will be making an afternoon visit to LAZAR TAG at Martlesham, leaving the church at 3.30pm. Teenagers who would like to go will need to get their parents to fill in a consent form, and bring it back on or before the day : these are at the back of church, and those who have already expressed interest will find a form with their name on it. There are spare forms there for others to use.
St.Felix Young Fathers (Young Father being defined as a father with children still at school!) This is an informal group which meets every few weeks at the Presbytery. There is plenty of food, wine, conversation, and laughter. Over coffee, though, we have a discussion about something serious - next time it is on same sex marriage. 'Next time' is a week on Tuesday, October 3rd, at 7.30pm. I've sent a note to people who usually attend, but anyone else is most welcome to join us. I only ask that they will tell me beforehand, so that I know the numbers in order to facilitate catering.
This weekend The visit of the statue of Our Lady of Fatima, together with the relics of the two young visionaries, is taking place for veneration at St.John's Cathedral Norwich.
There is a pilgrim service at 7.0pm this evening (both on Saturday and on Sunday).
