Fr. O'Brien Summer Visiting. Last summer I really enjoyed visiting families and blessing parishioners' homes. It
gave me the chance to get to know more about St. Mary's and its story. I've been here just over a year and am still
meeting new people and learning new things as well as making plenty of mistakes. If you live in the parish and would
like a visit then contact the parish office. Tel: 232433.
Canonisation! The Vatican has announced that on 13th October 2019, Pope Francis will be canonising Blessed John

St. Mary's Garden Angels. People are remarking about how well the grounds are looking around the church. This is
all down to parishioners volunteering their time - Thank you so much. Help is always needed because of the size of
our grounds and so if you can spare some time on a Wednesday or another day please let us know. Contact Navada for
more info on 07930 204579, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Scripture Group. After the Lenten retreat earlier this year some parishioners asked about having the opportunity to
learn more about the Bible. As we know every encounter with the Scriptures is an encounter with Christ so to have the
confidence to pray and read the Bible is important. The Scripture Group sessions will be on a Thursday from 7pm-
8pm on the following dates: 5th Sept, 19th Sept, 17th Oct, 31st Oct, 14th Nov, 28th Nov, 12th Dec. All you need
bring is yourself and a Bible which I can order if you want one.
