Why not sign a “Gift Aid” Form?

If you are a tax payer do, please, sign a “gift-aid” form. This takes only a few moments to do, it costs you nothing, but greatly enhances the value of what you give by allowing the parish to claim back the tax on your donation. Just see the priest if interested. And another reminder please do use your offertory envelopes for your giving!! PAC Minutes This meeting was held on Monday last (9th). Copies of the said minutes can be found at the back.

“Missio” Book Marker/Prayer Cards

These, too, are available from the back. Do take one (or more!). More Readers Readers are desperately needed for the 6pm Mass on Saturday in Llay. What is a “Reader” - The Liturgy Office of the Bishops Conference of England & Wales states: “God speaks to the assembly through them, and, the impact of God’s message will depend significantly on their conviction, their preparation, and their delivery. The reader has responsibility for not simply reading the word, but assisting the assembly to hear the word.” If you would like to take part in this ministry, for any Mass, please contact Canon.

Advent 2020 “ A year of the Word”

2020 is the 1600th anniversary of Saint Jerome’s death and the 10th of “Verbum Domini” - Benedict XVI’s Apostolic Exhortation on “The Word of the Lord”. The Bishops of England and Wales are marking these events by designating 2020 a year of focus on the Bible; the Diocese will do likewise. For initial information see: http:// catholicnews.org.uk/thegodwhospeaks A beautiful prayer by Cardinal Newman Dear Jesus, help me to spread Your fragrance everywhere I go. Flood my soul with Your spirit and life. Penetrate and possess my whole being so utterly that my life may only be a radiance of Yours. Shine through me, and be so in me that every soul I come in contact with may feel Your presence in my soul. Let them look up and see no longer me, but only Jesus! Stay with me and then I shall begin to shine as You shine, so to shine as to be a light to others; the light, O Jesus, will be all from You; none of it will be mine; it will be You, shining on others through me. Let me thus praise You the way You love best, by shining on those around me. Let me preach You without preaching, not by words but by my example, by the catching force of the sympathetic influence of what I do, the evident fullness of the love my heart bears to You. Amen.
