HOLY CROSS NEWSLETTER: Please take a copy of the newsletter home to remind you of the Mass times and parish/diocesan events during the coming week. Please take a copy to anyone you know who is sick or housebound. Items for the newsletter can be left at the presbytery letterbox or emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org by Thursday midday. The weekend newsletter is published on Friday mornings.

GIFT AID: If you are a UK taxpayer, the parish can claim back from the Inland Revenue 25p of every £1 you give, at no cost or inconvenience to you. Setting up a Gift Aid arrangement helps your parish to increase its income, which is much needed for the upkeep of the church and for the many pastoral activities in the parish.
What does it mean to have a Mass offered for someone? The Mass is considered as the greatest possible prayer of intercession because it is the perfect offering of Christ to the Father by making present the Paschal Mystery of his death and resurrection. It is a longstanding tradition in the Church that a priest may be requested to offer a Mass for a specific intention, even when one cannot be physically present at the Mass. You may ask a priest to offer a Mass for several reasons: for example, for the intentions of another person (such as on a birthday, on a wedding anniversary, during a time of illness etc.), in thanksgiving or for the repose of the soul of someone who has died. The grace of that Mass is applied to the specific intention. The tradition of offering Masses for others, particularly the dead, originates in the very early Church. St. Ambrose (d. 397) said; “We have loved them during life; let us not abandon them in death, until we have conducted them by our prayers into the house of the Lord.”
At Holy Cross: In order to streamline the bookings of Masses, those who would like to offer Mass Intentions are encouraged to use the Mass Envelopes in the porch and hand them either in the Sacristy or through the Presbytery Letterbox. They will then be on the Parish Newsletter.
