A NEW VENTURE
a couple of weeks time, on Saturday November 4th, our
new initiative with children begins - replacing the former Saturday Catechism
at the Convent, which had come to an end. There has been, as you know, much
debate over the past weeks as to whether we should replace the Saturday
Catechism, and if so, with what. The Catechists and myself
have come to the decision that we should experiment with a new venture at St.Felix, 9.0am-10.0am each Saturday morning. The first
half hour will be devoted to a simple Childrens'
Mass, which anyone is welcome to attend. After which the First Holy Communion
candidates will go into the Presbytery for their instruction, and other
children will go into the
I would remind Parents that any children who are not attending Catholic Schools should be coming along to these Saturday morning sessions, so that they have opportunity to learn the Faith.

Safeguarding Training Philip Dance, one of our Safeguarding Representatives , writes 'Fellow parishioners, the Catholic church in England and Wales is committed to ensuring that we have a safe environment for all and especially for our children and vulnerable adults. To assist with this, Safeguarding representatives are appointed in all parishes to answer questions and deal with issues. To further help parishes thrive, training material is now available for all to help understand the threats to a safe environment and how to spot and overcome them. The material is available on line and if you are interested please ask Phil or Anne Dance for details or pick up a leaflet at the back of church.'
Support for Refugees The Chairman of the Parish Council writes 'Those who attended the PAC last Tuesday were impressed with a talk given by Rebecca Crerar from Suffolk Refugee Support. Rebecca explained the work of her team and thanked us for the kind donations we had made to help the Syrian families that arrived earlier in the year. As a community we will be looking to see what more we might do to help in the coming months. Rebecca did mention that one of the families was expecting a baby in the coming weeks, a little girl, and that they would find it hard to provide clothes, nappies and equipment for her. In response to this immediate call for help we will be placing a box at the back of the church where you are invited to donate an item that would be useful in the early months of parenthood.'
