————————————————————————————-Sunday Mass Obligations:

With the ease of almost all the lockdown regulations, the Catholic Bishops Conference of England and Wales have decided to reinstate the Sunday Obligations. This means that every Catholic is expected to attend Mass in Church on Sunday beginning from Pentecost Sunday, 5 June 2022. However, those who, as a result of age, poor mobility, sickness or any other tenable reasons, are unable to be physically present are exempt. You can read a full explanation of this plenary resolution on our website. Welcome Home!

————————————————————————————-Missing: One church window Pole last seen at Easter. We need to be able to open the windows during warm weather.

Please keep your eyes open.

————————————————————————————-‘The Spirit That Gives Us Life’ John 6:63

The All Nations Catholic Charismatic Group invites all the people of the parish for the celebration of the feast of the Pentecost at St Andrews Church, Thornton Heath, Croydon on Sunday 5 June from 1pm onwards. The feast of Pentecost is an integral part of our Christian life. Our main celebrant will be His Grace Most Rev Archbishop Emeritus Kevin McDonald. In attendance as well are Rev Fr Francis Utotu and Rev Fr Mark Binang.  Let us come together to celebrate the birthday of our church.  Food and drinks will be provided after the Eucharistic celebration.  Please see the poster on the notice board for more information. Thank you.

————————————————————————————-The Southwark Brethren

The Charity of the Southwark Brethren started in 1921 and has always focused on helping the sick priests and those who are in need. Although Priests’ standard of living has increased over the years, what is greatly noticed is the cost of care whether a priest chose to have care at home or decide to go into residential care or nursing care, the costs of care are extremely high and so support in this way is necessary if a priest cannot support themselves. Please send donations to either Fr Paul Hough or Fredericka Pizzoferro (Trustee) at 3 Birch Way Warlingham CR6 9DA, for further enquiries please call 07939654522. We thank you for your continuous generosity in the past and ask for your help again this year.
