DEAR HUSBAND & WIFE…

You are invited to give each other a gift
by spending July 10 online
between 9am and 1pm exploring and improving your relationship.

The event, entitled ‘Building A Better Marriage’, will provide you with valuable insights into your communication skills
and the call of the Church to the married.

There is no group sharing.

This is not marriage counselling
but a chance to make average-to-good marriages a bit better –
whether you married five years ago or 50.

Booking is essential:
telephone 07983 524 727
or email mflkent@rcaos.org.uk
 

Recent online ‘Building a Better Marriage’ courses attracted the following
comments from couples:

‘The topics were chosen well and
we could really relate to them…

The personal stories you shared were
very insightful and helped us to reflect
on our own relationships more deeply…

It was relaxed and you put us at ease,
being friendly and personable...

We thoroughly enjoyed attending the course.’



ANNUAL CATHEDRAL MARRIAGE MASS

Are you celebrating your 1st, 10th, 25th,
40th, 50th, 60th or any later
wedding anniversary this year?

Or did you last year?

If so, Archbishop John invites you to
join him in celebrating a Mass
for married couples at 3pm on Saturday October 9 at St George’s Cathedral.

You need to book in advance and by doing
 so you will then receive a personal written invitation from Archbishop John.

To book or for more details email mflsw@rcaos.org.uk



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




Thank you

for your Offertory donations and standing orders for the upkeep of the Parish.

Pope Francis

invites Catholics and Marian Shrines
around the world to dedicate the month
of May to a marathon of prayer
for an end to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Catholics across the globe are encouraged
to dedicate the Marian month of May
to praying for an end to the pandemic.

The initiative, behind which the Pope has thrown his support, involves 30 Marian Shrines from various parts of the world.

It takes place under the theme “The whole Church was fervently praying to God,” which recalls a verse in the Book of Acts (12:5).

Each day will see Vatican News

https://www.vaticannews.va/en.html

broadcast the recitation of the Rosary
at 6pm Rome time from the
various Shines taking part.

The Pope will also close the initiative on 31 May with another specially-broadcast Rosary.



CONFIRMATION 2021

will hopefully take place on Saturday
27th November 2021 at 11am.

Application Forms are now available in
the Church Porch or on request from
Fr. Kevan at worcesterpark@rcaos.org.uk
and should be returned by 22nd August.


Please keep praying for the people of India and all those affected by the pandemic.
