Today is the World day of Prayer for Vocations to the Priesthood and Religious Life.  There will be a retiral collection at both Masses for the Ecclesiastical Students’ Fund which helps support the students from our Diocese currently studying for the priesthood. There is also a letter from Archbishop Cushley which the Passkeepers will distribute as you leave Mass. Please make sure you receive a copy.  It is important.

Today is the second Sunday of May, the month traditionally associated with Our Lady in the life of the Church.  As in the past couple of years, flowers would be welcomed to create a shrine around the statue of Our Lady.  These will be gathered at the start of Mass by children present.  Please feel free to bring a single flower or a bunch.

Today: The new Altar Servers’ Rota is ready for collection so all Altar Servers should come to the sacristy after Mass and collect their copy.  It comes into effect very soon.
