DAY OF PRAYER FOR UKRAINE

The CCEE President has shared
these words with us recently

“Following the beautiful experience of the “Eucharistic chain”, accomplished during
Lent with every CCEE member that
guaranteed at least one Eucharistic
celebration for the victims of the pandemic
and for peace in Ukraine, we want to make another gesture of solidarity for this country stricken by the war that has already lasted many months. On Wednesday 14th September There will be a day of prayer throughout the whole continent. We have chosen 14 September, the Feast of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross, that is celebrated in a particularly solemn way in the Eastern Rite.”

On Wednesday 14th September
here at Saint Matthias we will have
a Holy Hour from 10.30am-11.30am,
after the 10am Mass.




BAPTISMS Contact Fr. Sean.

MARRIAGES
The Diocese requests couples to give
Fr. Sean at least 6 months notice,
especially if they intend to be married
outside the Parish.



REQUESTING MASS FOR

A PARTICULAR INTENTION:


Mass Offering
A laudable Catholic custom is to have a Mass said for a specific intention.

All Masses, of course, are offered to the glory of God and for the salvation of the whole world, but often there is also a specific intention; here in the Parish the intentions are usually printed in the newsletter.

Anyone may request a Mass to be said
for their particular intention.

It is customary, when requesting a Mass,
to make an offering as a way of being
especially associated with that Mass.

However, it is not necessary
to make an offering.

The usual suggested donation is £10; some give less, some give more, some give nothing.

Please never feel that you cannot
have a Mass said for your intentions
due to lack of funds.

A Mass costs nothing – except, of course, the life-saving death and resurrection of Jesus.

Mass Intention envelopes are available
by the entrances of the church.



PARISH PRAYER BOARD
AND NOTICE BOARDS


Work has commenced to clear the notice boards and Church of any outdated
literature and to update with the new.

We would ask that any materials or literature are forwarded to the Parish office, posted through the presbytery door or given to Father Sean so that they can be displayed
 in the most appropriate place.

The prayer board will be cleared on a
monthly basis as it has been in the past.

We kindly ask that you date your prayer
so that it is not unintentionally
taken down before you would like.

Any special prayers or intentions can of course be brought to the attention of Father Sean.



CATHOLIC CERTIFICATE
IN RELIGIOUS STUDIES


The Catholic Certificate in Religious Studies (CCRS) is a knowledge-based, internationally recognised qualification that provides participants with an understanding of the teachings of the Catholic faith.

This course presents the basic foundational teachings of the Catholic Church in a manner that is captivating, inspiring, and practical.

It enhances the understanding that education within the Church is a life-long process.

The CCRS is managed and awarded by the Board of Religious Studies (BORS) on behalf of the Bishops' Conference of England and Wales; it is designed primarily for teachers
 in Catholic schools but it is open
to anyone who wishes to deepen their understanding of the Catholic faith.

The course commences on the
13th September for a two-year
in person course or as a one-year
online course via Zoom.

Further information can be found here: https://aec.rcaos.org.uk/ccrs
