Dear Parents and carers,

 

Many thanks for your attendance at the Family Mass on Sunday 24th February on the theme OFFERTORY – THE GIFTS WE OFFER when our children carried the Offertory Gifts of our parish family and proudly presented them to the priest.

 

Can I gently remind you that our March theme is GIVE THANKS – LITURGY OF THE EUCHARIST and our meetings are:

 

Meetings with Parents and Children

  • TUESDAY 12th MARCH from 5.30 till 6.30pm in St Joseph’s Church OR
  • WEDNESDAY 13th MARCH from 3.30 till 4.30pm in St Benet’s School

 

 

Family Mass in St Joseph’s Church on SUNDAY 17th MARCH at 10.00am.

  • Please remember to bring your child’s copy of My Mass Book
  • The particular focus of this mass is The Offering of the bread & wine and our everyday lives. Please pay special attention to the following prayers and encourage your children to join in with a clear response.

 

Blessed are you, Lord God of all creation, for through your goodness we have received the bread we offer you: fruit of the earth and work of human hands, it will become for us the bread of life.

Response: Blessed be God for ever.

 

Blessed be you, Lord God of all creation, for through your goodness we have received the wine we offer you: fruit of the vine and work of human hands it will become our spiritual drink.

Response: Blessed be God for ever.

 

  • After Mass, everyone is welcome to join us in the Parish Centre for tea & coffee, soft drinks, biscuits and cakes!

 

Please give me a call if you have any questions – otherwise, I look forward to seeing everyone!

 

Best wishes,

Peter
