Come what May

There’s a lot going on this month in our 3 Churches…

Mission Appeal This weekend and the weekend of 17/18 May
Fr Jack Thora (not sure I’ve got the right spelling!) a priest
from the Missionaries of Africa (White Fathers) will be making
an appeal at Christ the King, and at St Brigid’s/St Paul’s
respectively. Please support them with your usual generosity.

Celebrate This weekend you are very welcome to attend the Celebrate Wales Weekend at Corpus Christi School Saturday 9am-9pm Sunday 9am- Mass at 2.00pm. Come anytime during these periods.

Life in the Holy Spirit Do you need renewal in your Christian life and faith? Do you want a “refresher” or perhaps you are looking for a “starter”? Are you looking for a follow-up to Celebrate? Do you know much about the Holy Spirit? From Sunday 11th May a series of seven weekly gatherings will take place in St Brigid’s Hall at 7.30, where we will revisit the foundations of our faith and grow in the power of the Holy Spiritt. Fr Matthew leads the first session. Other speakers include Fr Gareth Leyshon, Deacon Rob Coyne and others

First Holy Communions The middle two weekends of the month we have First Holy Communions – at St Brigid’s 10.30 Mass on 11th May, and at Christ the King 10.30 Mass on 11th and 18th May. We remember the children and their families in our prayers.

Our Lady May is a month of special devotion to Our Lady. The Rosary is prayed several times a week before weekday Mass at St Brigid’s and/or St Paul’s. If you wanted to do something special, you could attend the annual Torchlight Procession that takes place at Belmont Abbey, Hereford, on Wednesday 14 May starting at 9pm. Preacher: Dom Brendan Thomas. Refreshments available afterwards. Info: tel 01432 374 735.

Confirmations… are just around the corner in the first week of June!

Fr Matthew
