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.


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. 


As we come to the end of the month of the Sacred Heart, it is possible to continue the devotion by making an Act of Family Consecration and by having an image of the Sacred Heart of Jesus in the home, together with an image of the Immaculate Heart of Mary.  The following form of consecration can be made:-


Most Sacred Heart of Jesus and Immaculate Heart of Mary, we consecrate ourselves and our entire family to you.

We consecrate to you our very being and all our life: all that we are, all that we have, and all that we love.

To you we give our bodies, our hearts, our souls.

To you we dedicate our home and our country.

Mindful of this consecration, we promise you to live the Christian way by the practice of Christian virtues, with great regard and respect for one another.

O Most Sacred Heart of Jesus and Immaculate Heart of Mary, accept our humble confidence and this act of consecration by which we entrust ourselves and all our family to you.

Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, have mercy on us.  Immaculate Heart of Mary, pray for us.
