THE EVIDENCE OF GRACE

(Fr. Michael’s Reflection)

The church is a network of Eucharistic fellowship and human companionship, united at the table of the Lord and radiant from contemplating that Eucharistic face that frees, saves and unites.

In every Eucharist, we re-enact the pilgrimage to Emmaus. Jesus reveals himself to us on our journey. This supernatural food is healing for both body and soul and strength for our journey heavenward. He speaks to our hearts in the Scriptures. Then at the table of the altar, in the person of the priest, He is present, and especially at the breaking of the bread, and sharing of the Chalice. He is present.

The are many ‘presences’ of the risen Jesus. Jesus is present in his word; in the Church at prayer; wherever two or three are gathered in his name; present in the poor, in the sick, in the imprisoned, in the painful pilgrimage of migrants, in the uncertainties of asylum seeker; in the loneliness of the homeless, in the abandonment of the aged; in the person of the ministers, in the sacraments and ultimately in the sacrifice of the mass. In these places of divine encounter let our supplication be: Mane Nobiscum Domine- Stay, stay with us Lord!

The bishops of England and Wales will hold a National Eucharistic Pilgrimage and Congress in Liverpool this year. Eucharistic Congresses are gatherings of clergy, religious and laity which promote an awareness of the central place of the Eucharist in the life and mission of the Church. The Echo Arena in Liverpool - which can accommodate 10,000 pilgrims - will be the home to a six-hour stage programme on the second day of the Congress, which will include a Congress Mass, keynote speakers and a drama highlighting the beauty of reverence and devotion. The day will conclude with Adoration.

If you would like to be one of six parish delegates for Saturday 8th September, then please give your name to our parish

administrator Richard Cooper by email on sacredheart479@btinternet.com or telephone 0114 2343580. The diocese will be organising coaches to get to and from Liverpool.


 

Gift Aid: The tax the parish can reclaim from HMRC is an important source of income and we would like to encourage any taxpayers who do not currently make their offering under Gift Aid to consider doing so. It is the best way of increasing your offering without it costing you more, since currently, the government will increase each £1 of your personal offering by a further 25p.For the parish to reclaim the tax on your offering, you, the taxpayer, need to make a Gift Aid declaration and we, the parish, need to have a record of the date and amount of your offerings. Offerings can be by standing order, cheque or cash in a numbered offertory envelope. Your Gift Aid Declaration will cover all donations recorded by the parish, including for the Food Pantry. You will find Gift Aid declaration forms at the back of church near the hymn books. When you have completed the form, please hand it either to the presbytery or drop it through the letterbox. Please be assured that the administration of Gift Aid is completely confidential. If you have any questions about Gift Aid, please contact Janina Klapas on 2343580. If you are considering making a gift to the Church in your will, information can be obtained by contacting the presbytery. Thank you for your continuing support. It is very much appreciated. Offertory envelopes are at the back of church. If you want to start using envelopes, please let us know.
