Pictures of Father Kevan’s Last Mass

Michael Leonard took pictures
at Father Kevan’s last Mass and
 if anyone wishes to receive them please Email him at malysl@hotmail.com.

He will then advise on the procedures
for the transfer of the images.



Safe Arrival of Father George Odafe

Father George arrived safely in Nigeria.

Please keep him and all the Seminarians in your prayers, as it is a very dangerous situation where his Seminary is located.



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.




GIFT AID BOXES have returned!

They are ready for collection
from the Hall after Mass.

However, if you now have a Standing Order there may not be a box.



Farewell Gift to Father Kevan

Father Kevan served here
for twenty three years and has
now retired to be a Chaplain in a Convent.

I am aware there are people wish t
o organise a collection for him
and present this formally to him.

Therefore, can anyone who is interested
in helping to arrange this
please come and see me.



Hello from Father Sean

Thank you for the wonderful welcome
you have given me.

Bishop Paul Hendricks will induct me as your Parish Priest on Sunday 3rd October at the 11:15 Mass, with refreshments afterwards.

All are welcome.

Thank you for your offers of help,
I will be following up on them soon.



Christmas 2021

We need as a Parish to prepare
what we are going to do.

Therefore, can anyone let me know
what they do as individuals or as a group?

It will be good to assess what
we can do as a Parish.

Staying at home: a new resource for young people
Southwark Catholic Youth Service has worked with some 6th form students on a mini-series ‘Christ is Alive’. This is an invitation for young people to focus on staying spiritually healthy and to ponder some of the big questions about life, through journaling and prayer.

This may be particularly relevant during this difficult time of lockdown. www.youtube.com/southwarkcatholicyouthservice
