PRIEST’S REST DAY
Please note that Fr. Lucas’ rest day will be on a Tuesday with Weekday Masses adjusted accordingly.
MASS INTENTIONS
This week 16 Mass Intentions have been received. This brings the outstanding number of Intentions to
36 with some dating back to October. It is with regret that it will some weeks before it will be possible
to assign Masses on the dates or in the churches requested. Those who asked for Masses in January, for
example, are unlikely to see the Intentions offered until March at the earliest.
COMMUNION TO THE HOUSEBOUND
For each person taking Communion to the Sick there is an ‘Information Pack’ in the sacristy. After reading it
if you have any queries please contact Deacon Bill. There is also a Communion Housebound Register for
each church. ALL visits should be properly recorded in the Register for Safeguarding purposes.
KEY HOLDERS’ REGISTER
Anyone holding keys for the parish, please enter the details on the Key Holders’ Register Form which will be
found on a clipboard in the sacristy.
PRESBYTERY HOUSEKEEPING
Anyone who is able to help with some general housekeeping in the presbytery once a week, please contact Fr.
Lucas.
PARISH PROJECTS
1.
The leaking roof at St Martin’s will be repaired in the near future.
2.
A CCTV scan of the drainage system at Our Lady’s highlighted a serious problem for the kitchen
project. Details will be released when known.
3.
The surveyor has reported on Our Lady’s presbytery. He has put a number of possible options which
will be considered by the Finance Board in March. There is no date yet for when a decision might be
made.
READERS’ AND EXTRAORDINARY MINISTERS’ ROTA
The rotas are being compiled at the moment. Please check your commitment carefully and if there are any
changes to be made please contact Toni Woodhead - [email protected] or for Readers, please contact
Samantha Johnston - [email protected]
MORE VOLUNTEERS ARE NEEDED, ESPECIALLY AS READERS!
Full support and training will be provided.
READERS’ TRAINING
There will be a training session for Readers from across the LPA at St Edward’s on Thursday 22nd January at
7pm. All Readers are encouraged to attend, most especially those who didn’t attend the recent Training Day
in Northwich. If you need transport please liaise with other Readers at your church.
DAY OF REFLECTION FOR MINISTERS
There will be a Day of Reflection for all those who serve the parish in any sort of ministry (Readers,
Cleaners, Musicians, Catechists, Counters, etc.) at St Edward’s on Saturday 21st February 10.30-3.00. Please
bring a packed lunch. Tea and coffee will be provided.
OUR PARISH COMMUNITY - AN OPPORTUNITY FOR GROWTH
We have seen how the loss of one priest can affect hundreds of parishioners. To help our parishes to survive
in the years ahead, this will require much more participation from the Laity in many aspects of ministry. At
the moment too few people in our parish are undertaking too many tasks. I would, therefore, ask you all to
consider very seriously becoming more involved in the running and ministries of the parish. Shortly, a list of
ministries will be available and you are all asked to consider becoming more involved in the pastoral care of
YOUR parish.
