- RACIAL JUSTICE SUNDAY
This weekend, the Catholic Church in England and Wales celebrates Racial Justice Sunday. It is a day on which all Christians are called to earnestly pray for an end to racism and racial inequality. The Catholic Church in England and Wales is contributing to the efforts to overcome racial injustice in our nation through the pioneering work of the Bishops’ Conference Office for Migration. This work has seen a unique partnership forged between the Church and the statutory authorities in combatting human trafficking and modern-day forms of slavery, supporting some of the most vulnerable and marginalised people. To support this work and that of the Catholic Association for Racial Justice, a second collection will be taken this weekend. Your donation will help to make a difference.
- ST BENEDICT’S CENTENARY
St Benedict’s Church celebrates the 100th Anniversary of its opening on the 11th July 2015; The Feast of St Benedict. The Centenary Planning Group and Parish Council have been discussing ways to make the months leading up to the event special too. Various activities are planned throughout the year. There will be Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament on the 1st Friday of every month at 3.00pm until 4.00pm commencing on Friday 3rd October (is the CAFOD Harvest Fast Day too). Parishioners are encouraged to drop in and spend some moments in private prayer in preparation for the Centenary.

For those wanting to find out more about the Catholic Faith or are thinking of becoming a Catholic. This group will be meeting again in the Holy Family Chapel at St Benedict’s Church each Tuesday starting again from Tuesday 7th October at 7.15pm for a 7.30pm start. Forms part of the RCIA (Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults). Enquirers are welcome to turn up on the night or contact the parish office beforehand on 01925 630127 for more information.
- HOME MISSION SUNDAY
Next week. This year’s theme: Evangelisation ‘in the heart of the family’ Fact: Many children and young people will never see their parents receive the sacraments. Every Catholic who goes to Mass knows someone who currently is distant from the family of the faith – the parish community. On 21st September the Catholic Bishops of England and Wales ask that Home Mission Sunday is celebrated in every parish to invite prayer and support for the work of evangelisation. Please pray for and help the Bishops to develop new ways to reach out to non-church- going (lapsed) Catholics by supporting the second collection next week. Prayer cards for CBEW are available at the back of church.
St Benedict’s – The Meditation Group next meets on Friday 10th October at 6.45pm in the Holy Family Chapel
- World War II Memorial
There is a First World War Memorial at St Benedict’s but not one for WWII. If you know the names of anyone killed on active duty during WWII who were parishioners at St Benedict’s, please let the parish office know on 01925 630127. (Please note that at the time of WWII the parish boundaries of St Benedict’s used to include all of St Stephen’s and some of St Oswald’s parish boundaries today).
