Pastoral Notes 23rd September, 2018

A variety of Gifts …………….

This weekend will include a short appeal for helpers with the St Edward’s Children’s Liturgy. It is a special feature of that Mass on Sunday at 10.30am. The number of Helpers has decreased and so plans are being made to have the Children’s Liturgy only on certain Sundays. Can you help? Your clergy are also getting older! Please pray for vocations as Deacon as well as future priests. In my years in Kettering we have had three different Deacons, especially Deacon Keith for these many years. Please pray for priests too. Services led by lay-people prepared for the Sunday services already occurs in some places! When we pray for ‘vocations’ we may now pray for many gifts, especially faith, hope and charity.
