EUCHARISTIC CONGRESS: In preparation for the 2018 Eucharistic Congress in Liverpool, the deanery is organising a 24 hour Eucharistic Adoration in all parishes, beginning with our parish – St John Fisher. This will take place on the First Friday of December (01/12/2017) starting with our usual First Friday Mass/Adoration at 9.00am and ends with 9.00 am Mass on Saturday 2nd December 2017. Please indicate your time preference for this all day/night presence with the Lord. This is our opportunity as a family to express our belief and love for Jesus in the Blessed Eucharist (“The Real Presence”). Come with family, children, the young and old – All Welcome!! Thank you, Fr. Christian.
As the Eucharistic Adoration flags off the Advent, our Christmas Recollection follows on the weekend of 15th-17th December. During this time, Fr. Flavian will explore his extraordinary experiences of life/death to remind us of the true meaning of Christmas, and Abbot O’Keefe shares a talk to arouse interest in our religious practices with opportunity for questions/answers. On the Sunday our children will be show-casing their talents with a Nativity play and the parish choir will be leading us as we join in to sing Christmas carols. Please see the flyer in the church porch. Thank you, Fr. Christian.
BILL KEEFE RIP: Sadly we have received the news that Bill passed away last Saturday. Please remember Iris and all the family in your prayers.
