Roundup of news and coming events

Confirmation Group

The Adult Confirmation Group starts this month and will meet five times between now and the Confirmation Service on Saturday 19th November at 4pm at Southwark Cathedral. If you would like to be prepared for Confirmation, please contact Simon or Colin urgently.

Sacred Heart Roman Catholic Church

Simon had the opportunity to meet the new Parish Priest at Sacred Heart, Trott Street, Fr. Gerry O’Shaughnessy, in late August. Fr Gerry has moved from being a parish priest in Bootle, Lancashire and has spent many years as a member of the Salesian Order, whose focus is on education and work with young people. His ministry has involved the teaching of music and drama and parish work both in North West England and the United States. We welcome Fr. Gerry and look forward to a new chapter of ecumenical partnership in the parish.

Asi Munisi

If you would like to contribute to Asi’s leaving gift, please make your donation in a clearly marked envelope either through the Collection Plate or via the Parish Office. We shall say goodbye to Asi in the 11am service on Sunday 18th September.
