Who are the Redemptorists?

Founded in 1732 by St. Alphonsus Liguori to be a congregation of Priests and Brothers who work tirelessly for the poor and most abandoned under the banner and motto:

With Him, there is plentiful redemption.

We live together in community, trying to live an apostolic life focussed around the Eucharist, the Divine Office and our Apostolic ministries.

Our Mother of Perpetual Succour…

The Redemptorists were given the icon by Pope Pius IX in 1866 more than 150 years ago, who told us:

“Make her known throughout the world.”

As part of that brief, once a year we especially gather together for nine days (culminating with the feast) to venerate this Icon of the Mother of God, to ask for her loving intercession and to express our gratitude for all the many graces she has won for us through her Son.

Unable to Travel ?

You can pray the Novena at home, uniting your prayers with ours. The Redemptorists have set up a website to enable people with no access to the Perpetual Novena or unable to get to a Perpetual Novena to set up Home Novena group.

Simply go to http://novena-at-home.redemptorists.co.uk/

FROM FR TIM

PLEASE NOTE NEW E-MAIL ADDRESS  

FROM FR TIM:

WEEKEND MASS - SUMMER TIMETABLE:  As in previous years, the 9:00 am and 11: 00 am Sunday Masses will be replaced with a 10:00 am Mass. The 5:30 pm Mass on Saturday evening remains unchanged. 

PLEASE NOTE: There will be a Vigil Mass on Tuesday at 7:00 pm due to the Feast of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary being on Wednesday. This will replace the usual 12noon Mass on Tuesday.

ADOREMUS: The week the schools reassemble is the week leading up to the Eucharistic Congress and we have two special fringe events at Bishop Eton. A Holy Hour with children and families on Friday 7 September at 6 pm and a lunchtime event following the noon Mass on Saturday 8 September. There are leaflets with details of all the events across the city at the back of the church this weekend. Our Junior Justice and Peace Group are already gearing up for the family event. I am hoping that all our altar servers will take part and help with a procession through the grounds (weather permitting).

THE EUCHARISTIC CONGRESS: For anyone interested, it is now possible to book directly to be a delegate at the Eucharistic Congress. Tickets are still available to the Saturday Echo Arena event at £43.50.  Please go to the website:  http://www.jumpdp.com/adoremus2018

EVENTS SUPPORTING ADORAMUS: There is a parallel programme of events supporting Adoremus from 7-9 September in various locations. See the poster in the porch or pick up a leaflet or visit the pages on the website, just click here

LIVING WELL WITH DEMENTIA - DEMENTIA AWARENESS SESSION:

On Monday 3 September 2018 7:00pm-8: 30 pm we will be hosting a dementia awareness session in the parish hall. Our guest speaker will be Serena Jones who is a dementia specialist nurse. Serena will share her expertise with us and offer advice on how people can live well with dementia, together with advice and signposting tips for carers.
The evening promises to be a very interesting and highly informative event. Everyone is welcome to attend and particularly those people living with dementia and their carers. In brief, Dementia is caused by diseases of the brain which can affect memory, everyday tasks, communication and perception. It is not a result of the normal ageing process.
There are over 800,000 people living with dementia in the UK and this figure is set to rise. Churches and faith-based organisations have an important role to play in ensuring people living with dementia can continue to live their lives and be an active part of their communities for as long as possible.
Many of our parishioners will develop dementia or be caring for someone who does. By being more dementia friendly, we can help and support them to continue practicing their faith.
Please do come along on 3 September so that we can continue to raise our awareness and work together in becoming a Dementia Friendly Parish. 
We would also like to invite representation from our schools and neighbouring churches. Parish groups including Eucharistic ministers who provide home visits, bereavement groups, SVP, UCM and RYM are particularly encouraged to attend and of course,  all those people who signed up as Dementia Friends at the July 2017 session.

GOSPEL CONCERT: Saturday 8 September in The Auditorium, Echo Arena at 8:00 pm called ‘Lost and Found’. Frank Cottrell-Boyce and the Soul Sanctuary Gospel Choir will perform the retelling of the Prodigal Son. Tickets are £10 or £5 if booked before the 15 August. To book please visit www.ticketquarter.co.uk/online/lost-and-found or call the Box office on 0344 8000 410 (Monday-Friday 9:00am-9:00pm & Sundays and Bank Holidays 10:00am-5:00pm)

EXPOSITION AND BENEDICTION: In August the Sunday Gospels are taken from St John and form a timely reminder that Christ is the living bread which nourishes us with his Word and Body.  It is a perfect time to prepare for the Eucharistic Congress (7-9 September). Each Friday Evening in July and August (6:30-7: 30 pm) we continue Eucharistic Adoration at St Mary’s. Do Join Us! N.B There is no Exposition here on Friday 7 September  (but there will be a special Adoration session for families that night at Bishop Eton as part of the Adoremus Fringe event)

UPDATE: We had an enjoyable celebration on the Feast of St Alphonsus and it was good that Fr Barrie O’Toole was able to join the community for the day. Once again my thanks to Fr Pat O’Brien for celebrating the Mass in St Mary’s and making it possible for the whole community to be together at Bishop Eton. All the recent funerals have been celebrated with great dignity and I remain immensely grateful to Deacon Bernard Rigby and Bernard Kean for all the hard work they put into supporting our families as they prepare the ceremonies.

COMINGS AND GOINGS: Fr Charles has returned from Granada and reports that the international meeting was a huge success. It was good that Patrick McKean from Bishop Eton and Jen Monkhouse from St Mary’s were able to represent our respective parishes. Charles leaves for some holiday next Friday and will return on August 26. I plan to get away this Tuesday and will return before Fr Andrew leaves for Ireland in time to join Marriage Encounter for the papal visit.

Since Hayley Metcalfe (Bishop Eton) and Ann O’Neill (St Mary’s) are also on leave at present, it will be good if you can leave anything which does not require immediate attention until we are all back later in the month. Kris Reeds and Gill Bickerstaff will keep things ticking over in the offices.

ADOREMUS: The week the schools reassemble is the week leading up to the Eucharistic Congress and we have two special fringe events at Bishop Eton.

FR BARRIE O’TOOLE: Last Tuesday I managed to visit Ripon and spend a couple of hours with Fr Barrie and his sister, Pat.

SUMMERTIME: Please remember that for the next five weeks there will be no Mass at 7:00 am in Bishop Eton. Hopefully, this will provide a little more room for manoeuvre in our Redemptorist community and help us to recharge the batteries.

The funeral of Pauline Bennet will be on Monday at noon and the funeral of Peter Prenton will be on Friday at noon. Elsie McKenzie’s funeral is yet to be arranged.

FROM FR TIM

PLEASE NOTE NEW E-MAIL ADDRESS  

WEEKEND MASS TIMETABLE: Please be aware, this weekend we start the summer timetable for weekend Masses. As in previous years, the 9:00 am and 11:00 am Sunday Masses will be replaced with a 10:00 am Mass. The 5:30 pm Mass on Saturday evening remains unchanged.

SCHOOL HOLIDAYS: We wish the staff and students of all our schools a thoroughly enjoyable summer break and hope that in September we will all be feeling refreshed and renewed and ready for the new academic year.

ADOREMUS: The week the schools reassemble is the week leading up to the Eucharistic Congress and we have two special fringe events at Bishop Eton. A Holy Hour with children and families on Friday 7 September at 6 pm and a lunchtime event following the noon Mass on Saturday 8 September. There are leaflets with details of all the events across the city at the back of the church this weekend. Our Junior Justice and Peace Group are already gearing up for the family event. I am hoping that all our altar servers will take part and help with a procession through the grounds (weather permitting).

Reality (July/August): This is the magazine from Redemptorist Communications in Ireland. Some of you may be interested in an article which they commissioned me to write, entitled: Coping with Marriage Breakdown in the Church. We have a few issues each month at Bishop Eton. If anyone is interested in the article, please let the office know and I will see whether we can get some extra copies of the magazine or get permission to reproduce the article. The magazine costs £2.

Comings and Goings: Fr Charles leaves tomorrow (Monday) for the Redemptorist Youth Event in Granada (Spain) and will not be back until towards the end of the following week. Meanwhile, Fr Andrew should be back tomorrow evening.

THE EUCHARISTIC CONGRESS: For anyone interested, it is now possible to book directly to be a delegate at the Eucharistic Congress. Tickets are still available until the end of July to the Saturday Echo Arena event at £43.50.  Please go to the website:  http://www.jumpdp.com/adoremus2018/

TOWARDS A LIVING EUCHARIST: A talk next Sunday 29 July 2018 by Anne Grimes at the Carmelite Convent, from 3:30pm-5: 30 pm with Adoration, Evening Prayer and hospitality to follow. It is a reflection on the partnership between the parish and the school in preparation for the Eucharistic Congress 2018. All welcome!

ST MARY’S AND BISHOP ETON WOMENS’ GROUP: next meet  Tuesday 24 July at 12:30 pm in the Fisher –More hall.

The event is open to all and particularly those people living with dementia and their carers. There is no charge, but donations will be gratefully received. All welcome!

EXPOSITION AND BENEDICTION: Next Sunday the Sunday Gospels are taken from St John and form a timely reminder that Christ is the living bread which nourishes us with his Word and Body.  It is a perfect time to prepare for the National Eucharistic Congress (7-9 September). Each Friday Evening in July and August (6:30-7: 30 pm) we continue Eucharistic Adoration at St Mary’s. Do Join Us!   N.B There is no Exposition here on Friday 7 September

PLEASE NOTE NEW E-MAIL ADDRESS ABOVE:  

THE SOLEMNITY OF THE MOST HOLY REDEEMER:

IMG 4569

Today, our titular Feast Day, we wish you all every blessing. As we explained previously, this weekend the priests of the pastoral area are swapping churches, to give witness to the fact we are trying to pool our resources and work more and more collaboratively. We welcome Fr Stephen Pritchard, the Dean, to St Mary’s and his note about the weekend is included in this bulletin. I am grateful to Fr Stephen and all the clergy in the pastoral area that they have agreed to celebrate the Feast of the Holy Redeemer, not only in the parishes under the care of the Redemptorists, but in all the parishes this weekend. However, the readings will be the usual Sunday readings and they are very appropriate for the occasion.

REDEMPTORIST STUDENT FUND: On this feast day we usually ask you to help contribute to the fund for the education of our students, but since the collection at the Novena was specially earmarked for that cause, we are not having another collection this year. Incidentally the final total from the Novena was £4,211. Once again,’ thank you’ and congratulations!

COMING AND GOINGS: Fr Kevin Callaghan is very grateful to all those who made his celebration last weekend such a happy occasion. Fr Andrew is now in Madrid and Fr Charles is away for a couple of days until Tuesday evening.

SYNOD 2020- ON THE ROAD TOGETHER: This weekend we welcome Fr Stephen Pritchard from Our Lady of the Assumption parish who will celebrate all our Sunday Masses. All the local priests will be in a different church in the Pastoral Area. This is the first of six occasions over the next two years when a different priest from the Pastoral Area will celebrate Mass here. The priest will help us to see that:

  • We are moving in a new direction by small but significant practical steps towards a Diocesan Synod in 2020.
  • You will see that the priests will be working more closely to serve Christ and His people in this area.
  • Father will mention that the first meeting of the Pastoral Area Synod has happened. Many of this group are delegates at the Eucharistic Congress in September.
  • The priests will speak of how they are endeavouring on a new path with us and ask us to pray, to share our expertise, energy and commitment to offer God all we have in order to best serve as missionary disciples.

THE EUCHARISTIC CONGRESS: For anyone interested, it is now possible to book directly to be a delegate at the Eucharistic Congress. Tickets are still available until the end of July to the Saturday Echo Arena event at £43.50.  Please go to the website:  http://www.jumpdp.com/adoremus2018/

Funeral Service this week: Robert Allen (RIP) on Wednesday 11 July at 1:00pm.

FROM FR TIM

PLEASE NOTE NEW E-MAIL ADDRESS ABOVE:  

FrMilcz2FR JAN MILCZ, CSsR died peacefully at Marie Curie at around 9:00 pm last Tuesday evening.

Fr Charles and Bro Michael Taylor were with him.

When I took him Holy Communion last Sunday morning, I sensed that this would probably be the last time that I would see him.

To say that John had an eventful life would be something of an understatement. Having been taken prisoner as a boy during the Second World War, he was later to serve both in the Polish and British Armies.

His deep faith led him to try his vocation for the priesthood and he joined the Redemptorists in 1958, was professed in 1959 and ordained in 1966. He was a good and holy man and we will miss him, but we are grateful that the final struggle is over.

We, the Redemptorists, are immensely grateful for the love, friendship and support you have given him over the years and especially for your prayers in these last months of his life. We are also very grateful to Philip Sergeant (who is now coordinating the nursing care of our sick confrères), the carers and nurses who came to the monastery and the staff of Marie Curie during these final weeks. May he rest in peace. 

His funeral will be this Wednesday (11 July) at Noon.                                            

COMINGS AND GOINGS:

I have finally returned to base. The days with the military chaplains proved another rewarding experience. I do admire their challenging vocation, witnessing to the faith often in less than ideal circumstances.
Fr Charles is taking part in a vocations’ meeting in Clapham this weekend.
Fr Andrew leaves us next Friday for a ten–day Marriage Encounter Meeting in Madrid. When he returns the schools will have broken up for the summer holidays, England will have won the World Cup and hopefully we can all relax for a few days!

Pastoral Area pulpit swap towards Synod 2020:

In the joint Epiphany letter to all Catholics in the Pastoral Area, it was highlighted that as part of the Synod 2020 process and to demonstrate a deepening of collaborative ministry the priests would celebrate Sunday Mass in each of the churches in Pastoral Area 3.
Next Sunday is the first of these occasions.
The priests of the PA have felt called to have an ever-expanding ecclesial heart rather than a parochial heart and this has meant that they have been looking at ways to grow together to best serve the Kingdom of God. By visiting each parish, the priests will better be able to get to know different communities and people will be able to connect with priests from different local parishes.
Please keep in your prayers the Pastoral Area initiatives at this time.
