18th Sunday in Ordinary Time

Mrs Jacqueline Lance RIP

On the morning of Thursday 29th July she was called home to be with God for the Eternal Life. Known to many children and parents she served as Headteacher of St Bernadette’s Catholic School for many years before retiring. Latterly, through ill health she has been supported by family and friends. As we join her mother, Betty, Michael, her son and Josie, her daughter, in commending her into God’s hands, we give thanks for her years of service in Catholic Education and pray that she will rest in peace.

Fighting Modern Slavery

A sample of the latest Newsletter is available on the diocesan website and a sample may be seen on the noticeboard. A recent three part television documentary has also dealt with some of the issues.

Anniversaries Mass

The Diocesan Mass for couples with special Anniversaries is on Saturday 9th October at 11.30am in St Joseph’s Guildford. See here for further details.

The Word of Life Leaflet

The August leaflet will be available in the courtyard after Mass. It provides a verse of Scripture with a commentary for prayerful reflection during the Month. Ideal for travelling, waiting areas, and when not “busy“.

John Chapter 6

O bread of heaven, beneath this veil.

Thou dost my very God conceal

My dearest Jesus hail.

Each loving soul by thee is fed

With thine own self in form of bread

St Alphonsus Ligouri (translated by Edmund Vaughan)
