----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------June is a month of devotion to the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus.  We shall recite the following prayer at the end of every Mass:-


Sweet Jesus, through Your tender love for the Church your Spouse, You opened to her the riches of Your Sacred Heart; grant that our hearts may be enriched by the treasures it contains and replenished with its overflowing and unfailing delights.  Heart of Jesus, burning with love for us, inflame our hearts with love of You.


St Lawrence’s Church, Rowington, is holding an Icon Exhibition between the 11th and 17th June.  See the programme in the church porch for more details.


Celebrate, a Catholic Charismatic Weekend Conference, is being held at Oscott College on 1-2 July.  For more details and booking form, please see the leaflets in the church porch.


Another event happening in July is REBOOT, at which Chris Stefanick, an American speaker and author, will be leading an evening billed as ‘a life-changing event’, with music provided by the Mercy Tour.  This will be at St Catherine of Siena, Bristol Street, Birmingham, on Monday, 17th July between 6.30 and 9.00 pm.  See the poster in the church porch for details, including how to purchase tickets.

You may have seen Chris Stefanick on YouTube; he is an excellent and inspirational speaker, who presents the Catholic faith in an engaging and totally orthodox manner. 



Come Holy Spirit,

Bestow on me your gifts,

Bring forth in me your fruits.
