May they all Rest in Peace. 2nd Sunday of Lent: “Free to be Ourselves”. Sometimes we can be overwhelmed by each other’s generous sensitivity, thoughtfulness and kindness which have helped us grow in confidence to share our deepest feelings, fears and joys. Let us try this week to find ways of growing in that confidence and trust so that in our relationship we radiate God’s joy through the way we love each other. ANN DEMPSEY R.I.P. We offer our deepest sympathies and condolences to the family and friends of Ann who sadly died recently. May she Rest in Peace. Fr. Paddy. OCTOGENARIAN: On 8th March Michael McHale will be 40 years of age for the second time. After the 5.00 pm Mass there will be food and drink served in the Narthex. All welcome. Michael. JUSTICE & PEACE GROUP: Meet every 2nd Tuesday of each month in the Parish Room @ 7.00 pm. Everyone welcome to come along! The breakfast to mark Fairtrade Fortnight has had to be rescheduled so will not take place on March 8th but please watch this space. Fairtrade Fortnight runs from 23rd February to 8th March. This year it is twenty years since the Fairtrade mark was launched so the impact of Fairtrade is being celebrated. However there is a way to go: although 78% of the UK public recognise the Fairtrade mark only 1.2% of cocoa and less than 10% of tea is traded globally on Fairtrade terms. Please take action. Buy only Fairtrade goods for consumption at parish events and try to buy for yourself, every week, at least one thing which is fairly traded. CAFOD Lent Family Fast Day was Friday February 27th. This Lent we are asked to come together as a community to ensure the devastating effects of extreme weather no longer push people further into poverty. “We pray for those affected by storms, floods and droughts, that through God's grace we may work together to help rebuild lives and communities, and prepare for future disasters.”This Lent every pound you give will be matched by the UK government up to the value of £3.5 million. Please return your envelopes (if you don't have one just place your offering in any envelope marked Lent Fast). If you pay tax please consider completing the gift aid slip in the envelope, it will not cost you anything at all but means that CAFOD can obtain an extra 25p for every pound donated (in 2013 – 2014 this amounted to an extra £154.000). As always, thank you for prayerful and practical support. FILIPINO COMMUNITY MASS: Held every second Sunday of the month @ 2.00 pm followed by light snacks and drinks in the Narthex. ST. DOMINIC'S CREATIVITY GROUP: Meet every Thursday from 10.00 am - 12 Noon.
