Our next PAC Meeting

This will be on Monday, 27 January, 2020 at 7pm in Llay. Do make a note of it 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.

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!!

“The God Who Speaks”: – from

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 The Welsh Government- Religious Education (RE) and Relationships and Sex Education (RSE) The Welsh Government wants to take away the rights of parents to withdraw their children from both Religious Education and Relationships and Sex Education. They also want to dumb- down the subject of RE and force schools to teach children about worldviews instead. Bishop Peter is asking parishioners to urgently contact their Assembly Member and demand that the State does not usurp parents’ rights to decide how they teach these sensitive topics to their children. To contact your AM about this issue please visit the Catholic Education Service’s website catholiceducation.org.uk.
