----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Last Week’s Collection: £366.40.  Thank you

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Next Sunday is Corpus Christi and there will be a Procession and Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament at the end of the morning Mass; if the weather is fine, this will take place outdoors.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Please note that there will be an appeal and second collection on behalf of the St Barnabas Society at the Sunday Masses on the weekend of 24/25 June.  Since we are supposed to have the Peter’s Pence collection that weekend, we will have it instead at both the Sunday Masses on the Solemnity of SS. Peter and Paul, 29th June, which is a holyday of obligation.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------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 during the month:-


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 this week.  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 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 You Tube; he is an excellent and inspirational speaker, who presents the Catholic faith in an engaging and totally orthodox manner.
