The priests from Erith will be saying masses here for the next 2 weeks as I will be on holiday. Please note that there will be no service on Tuesday this week or next. I am returning for the funeral on Wednesday and also for the weekend masses and to do the weekend jobs!
OFFERTORY AT MASS
Due to Covid our offering to God through the financial support of the church got separated from its being offered in the mass– we currently make an offering on the way in to mass and it is brought forward later at the offertory! We will be returning to our previous better practice of taking a collection and bringing it forward at “The Offertory”. This will start NEXT Sunday. Those who make their offering by standing order should make a spiritual connection with their gift at this time.
STEWARDS – Stewards will need to help ensure that the collection is taken properly.
JOHN RAYER RIP
John’s funeral will be here on Wednesday morning at 10.00.
