Our Mission Statement We are first of all a Eucharistic community, centred on Christ, without whom we will get nowhere. We all of us have something to share with each other (and pass on), in order to discover ever more about our faith. And too we are evangelisers: Christ is Saviour of everyone.

Are you experiencing marriage problems? There is professional and confidential counselling available to couples and individuals. No matter the person or the circumstances, we’re here to listen and help. Visit www.marriagecare.org.uk or phone 0800 389 3801 to make an appointment to see a counsellor.

Anniversaries: We pray  for those whose  occur this week, including Anna Owen, Patrick Kelly, Margaret Curry, Brian Moss, James McGuire, Alfred Wainhouse,  Maureen Keeling, Antonio Marchese, Molly Harding, Kenneth Brown, and Timothy Buckley.

 Advent and Adoremus Christ the King celebrates all our feasts through the year, recognising Christ at the centre of them, and us at the receiving end of their benefits and blessings. Such is the profundity of these feasts that the following week we begin Advent and celebrate them all over again. The new Church’s Year 2018-19 is a chance to bring in the fruits of Adoremus , the recent Eucharistic Congress in Liverpool, and think of Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament here in our parish church.

To begin with, there’s an extra Exposition, starting on Tuesday December 4th, 6pm-7pm, for anyone passing to drop in for a moment or two.

This newsletter will also carry regular reflections on the Sacrament.

Any further suggestions?
