EASTERTIDE
After the joys and exuberance of Easter Sunday and Easter Week, we settle down into the longest Season in the Church’s Year - Eastertide. This period of fifty days is a time of sustained gladness, which comes through reading and reflecting on the Scriptures which describe the risen life of Jesus - not just his appearances to the disciples after the Resurrection, but the teachings from his ministry which reveal the risen life he now possesses.

WATER BLESSED AT EASTER
can be found in front of the Paschal Candle. Take some away with you so that you can use it at home. Plastic water bottles are available from the piety stall at the back of church.

NEW READERS
We are in need of more volunteers who can help us in this important ministry at Mass.
If you would like to read at whatever Mass you normally come to, then have a word with Mike Davis or Fr. Paul

CAFOD
During Lent there is always a collection for Cafod from Family Fast Day. We had a retiring collection with the added incentive this year in that the UK government has promised to match every pound and penny given to CAFOD’s Lenten appeal, we thank you for your usual generosity of 824.07.

THE CALL, THE JOURNEY, THE MISSION OF FAMILY LIFE
YOUR OPINIONS ARE NEEDED

The Bishops of England and Wales have prepared these reflections and ask that they are made available to all as we celebrate the Feast of the Holy Family. Please download and read this short document and share your thoughts with one another especially in your families. Bishop John Arnold asks that you consider sending your thoughts in writing to him at
Wardley Hall, Wardley Hall Road, Worsley, Manchester. M28 2ND.
He cannot promise to answer all submissions but will read and consider what you write and will use it as part of his submission to Cardinal Vincent Nichols and to Bishop Peter Doyle, who are to be the representatives from England and Wales at the second Synod on the Family next October in Rome.
Further information HERE. You can also view and print the document HERE

ROCHDALE FOODBANK Thank you once again for your wonderful generosity. Sadly the demands on the service are increasing, in these difficult times. Could we please try to continue to keep up the level of generous donations we have made over the past year?
