Sr.Immaculata RJM RIP It was sad to hear of the ending of Sr.Immaculata's long life - she was one hundred and three years old - although her death was peaceful and serene. We send our condolences to the Sisters, who had looked after her so faithfully. May she rest in peace.

National Eucharistic Congress

 

This Congress is taking place in Liverpool Saturday and Sunday 8th-9th September. It is a major event in the life of the Catholic Church. Our diocese is organizing a motor coach for the Saturday session, which begins at 10.30am and goes on until 3.0pm. Obviously the coach will be leaving East Anglia very early in the morning, and returning very late. The cost of Admission to the Congress is 40, which parishes have been ask to pay for any of their members who wish to attend. Participants would then pay for their own coach fare. I wonder whether anyone from this parish is interested in going? If so, please mention it to Fr.John, who has copies of the booking form, and will be able to provide details about the coach.
