​CAFOD GROUP  –  LAMPEDUSA CROSS

A Year of Mercy pilgrimage on the refugee crisis

“We have seen the face of Jesus in the face of every refugee.” 

(Archbishop Nikolaos Printezis, Lesbos, Greece)

In this Year of Mercy, Pope Francis invites us all to make a pilgrimage, to mark “an extraordinary moment of grace and spiritual renewal”. (Misericordiae Vultus)

The idea of pilgrimage is especially powerful in the light of the current migration crisis. More people than ever before in human history are now on forced journeys far from home.

This pilgrimage is a way for us to show solidarity with all those fleeing war, poverty and persecution in our world. Along the way, we reflect, “Who is my neighbour?”                          

After each Mass this weekend we will be making our own pilgrimage in church, using the seven symbols of the journey our brothers and sisters make.

There will be short prayers and reflection at each of these symbols.

With You Always  

Families with children in Year 4 will be receiving information this week about the preparation for the sacraments of Reconciliation and Communion. If you know any families with children in Year 4 who are not attending St Teresa’s school please invite them to contact the parish office for details of this year’s programme.

Craft Sale

Next weekend we welcome a visit from one of the Sisters of the St Elisabeth Convent in Minsk who is bringing along a selection of crafts for sale that have been made in the workshops that they run for disadvantaged people. 

The convents patronise 200 orphan children, assisting with their costs and rehabilitation and socialisation and helping to raise them in an environment of love. 

They also have a charity for people who need help recovering from addiction, the homeless, ex prisoners and the less able, helping provide them with accommodation, meals, medicine and the restoration of their IDs. 

The money raised through the sale of the crafts made in the workshops goes to help support this very challenging and very much needed work. 

The items will be available for sale from the back of church.

Congratulations to 

Terry & Sheila Owens who are 

celebrating 60 years of married bliss this week!

Happy Diamond Anniversary to you both!
