THE BODY AND BLOOD OF CHRIST (A)
Dear Parishioners,
This coming week we will be having extensive work on the Main Doors of the Church. Which will mean that the Church will be closed during the day from Monday 19th June to Friday 23rd June. Mass will be said each day at the usual time of 9.00am, with the Rosary and Morning Prayer before the Mass. You will enter the Church through the New Door, as the back of the Church will be shut off for the workers. We have had to do this as the Main Doors are left open all day and when it is a windy day they keep banging so much so that the bottom of the doors are being damaged. Also people do leave the door open when they come into the Church and it closes with a bang because of the wind. With the new work there will be very strong springs in the floor that will control the door in closing and keep the door shut when closed. It is an expensive job costing over £3000.00 but if we do not do it the cost will be much higher. We need to make sure that all is correct as we are also having an inspection on health and safety throughout the premises on Friday 7th July. With the last inspection we were informed that we had to have the doors opening outwards, and having done that we have had nothing but trouble with the doors. Hopefully, this will be rectified when the job is finished.
CANDLES: Sadly once again a person or persons are bringing
in the cheap candles from outside the Church and lighting them up. I must remind people that we have had a fire once and we really do not want another one. Please do not bring your own candles into the Church. The Church provides the candles. In the last two weeks St. Antony’s Church had a fire, luckily the Parish Priest spotted it and was able to stop it.
ALEXANDER JOHNSON: who has been here since last October to prepare himself to begin studies for the Priesthood has now left us and will be going to the Seminary in September. We wish him every success and blessing for the future. He helped out in St. Angela’s School and helped with the Confirmation course here in the Parish.
God Bless, Bob
