PARISH ADMINISTRATOR AT SIDCUP.
St Lawrence of Canterbury Church, Sidcup is a busy, friendly parish with a large number of lay people assisting in various ministries, sacramental preparation and organisations that make up our parish family. We currently have an exciting opportunity for a Parish Administrator (Part Time) to provide administrative support to the Parish office by implementing and maintaining office systems, processes and procedures. To be considered for the role, please send a CV and covering letter (no longer than one side of A4) to Fr Paul Kyne. Only shortlisted applicants will be contacted. Full Job description is available on St Lawrence of Canterbury website https://www.stlsidcup.org/
THE PARISH HALL
As Covid restrictions ease we will be able to make more and more use of our marvellous parish hall. Different activities will be permitted but until June at the earliest, we cannot enjoy our usual social/hospitality functions. We can still hope that Sunday June 26th will be the first day we can enjoy refreshments after mass, and if that is so then we will surely mark the occasion – a generous parishioner has offered to buy the first round!
Meanwhile, you will be pleased to hear that we have installed a new boiler and are upgrading the whole heating system.
FATHER FRANCIS HARTLEY RIP
Fr Francis’ anniversary is on 28th May, and so the mass that morning will be for the repose of his soul, and will have special prayers for the occasion. The web mass that weekend will also be for him so that friends and relations elsewhere can engage. Covid restrictions prevent us from doing much else at this time.
LES CONNOR RIP
We are sorry to announce also the death of Rob (“Les”) Connor. His funeral will be on Monday 24th may at 10.00 a.m.
Please print off this newsletter, using the screenshots below, and post it through the door of any parishioner you know without electronic access and make sure everyone feels okay and feels connected.
