7th Week of Easter 2020 

In today’s Gospel St John records the prayer of Jesus before his passion and death. It is best seen against the background of the Prologue to the Gospel. This prayer gives us an insight into the who Jesus is – the one sent by the Father – and of his mission among us.

As the lockdown gradually eases we hope that our churches will be able to open officially soon. Not yet for Mass but at least for an opportunity to enter, perhaps light a candle and pray before the Blessed Sacrament.  

From Katie Maidment: Sincere thanks to everyone who has made donations in memory of Bob. The final total will be announced when the online donation platform [via Ivan Fisher Funeral Home] closes on 15th June. This will also include any donations made in tribute via the Support Cambodia website.

Marie-Madeleine Kenning from our diocese has recently produced a book on Cambodia: ‘Then the Khmer Rouge Came: Survivors' Stories from Northwest Cambodia, a memoir’. It will be published at the end of June but you can pre-order a copy by contacting her on: mariemadeleinekenning@gmail.com 

Remember to pray for our sick parishioners: Maria Wilby, Matt Butler, John Gowing, Tom Ender, Derek and Frances Palman, Kevin Fitzmaurice, David Battigan, Graham Burdett and Mary Carr. Please pray also for Deacon Ron who is in the N&N for cardiac observation, and for Inge.

We remember those whose anniversaries occur at this time:  James Smythe, Carmel Larter, Thomasina Hopkins, Brenda White, Giovanni Bianchi, Frances Murphy, Bernard Martin, Terence Goralow, Mary Lamb, Mary Stockham, Valerie O’Hara, Joan Williamson and Nuala Wilders.

As with many other organisations our parish finances have been seriously affected by the lockdown. Many of you have set up a standing order which helps to pay the bills! Our account number with Barclay’s is 10246018. The sort code is 20.03.26. You can also pay by cheque (‘Sacred Heart Church’) which you can send to me.
