  1st MAY - SIXTH SUNDAY OF EASTER

StVincents11PARISH MEETING

Bishop John is meeting throughout May with all the clergy, each deanery as a group, so as to prepare the way and make some necessary changes so that the diocese may continue to be served by the clergy and laity, in the years to come.

The meeting with the clergy from this deanery will take place on Thursday 12th May.


Every parish has been invited to hold a meeting for parishioners to look at where they are presently, and how they might grow in the future, so as to truly become those missionary parishes Pope Francis often talks about.
Please come along to our Parish Meeting, which will take place in the Parish Centre on Tuesday 3rd May from 7.30pm to 8.30pm and will be chaired by Fiona Dunn.
The Parish also asks for your written thoughts by next weekend on the discussion / comment document distributed at all Masses this weekend. Your responses will be gathered in confidence and a summary will be published by 15th May. Members of the team helping with this will be at the back of church after the 6.30pm Mass next Saturday and in the Parish Centre after the 9.00am and 11.00am Masses next Sunday.
You can download another copy HERE.
PLEASE, PLEASE Let your voice be heard in the discussion

 EASTER WATER
The Easter Water can be found in front of the Paschal Candle near the Lectern. Take some water home to bless your house. Holy water bottles can be found on the piety stall.

THE  YEAR OF MERCY - DIOCESAN PRAYER
All loving Father, you sent Jesus your Son to show us your Mercy and to teach us how to forgive one another. Pour out your Holy Spirit upon us. Help us to remember that we are all sinners. Let this Year of Mercy be a pilgrimage, a journey back to you. Make us ambassadors of mercy, sharing your forgiveness with everyone, especially those who feel that they are beyond your love. We make this prayer through Christ Our Lord.
