REVERENCE FOR THE EUCHARIST:

Sadly in recent times, hosts have been found on the floor of both our churches. Therefore I beg all of you when receiving Communion to follow the guidance that we take a step to the side and consume the host in the presence of the minister.

Ministers, please be vigilant and if you see anything suspicious, do not hesitate to respond.

Marriage Matters Reflection

A Reflection from Marriage Matters (www.twoinoneflesh.org.uk) for this Sunday 

Second Sunday of Advent (Isaiah 11:1-10      Romans 15:4-9    Matthew 3:1-12)

Advent – a new beginning for us?

Today, Isaiah talks about trust and Matthew focuses on forgiveness.  Advent is the opportunity to discover new ways to help our partner to trust us and to share themselves.  Our prayer can be that we drop our defences, become more vulnerable and have the courage to open ourselves to be able to really listen, to share and to change.

A Reflection from Marriage Matters on the Feast of the Immaculate Conception

The Immaculate Conception (Genesis 3:9-15, 20 Ephesians 1:3-6, 11-12  Luke 1:26-38)

Chosen

God chose Mary to be the mother of His Son.  Her life was changed completely!  When we married, our lives were changed completely. We were no longer a single man and woman but a husband and wife, a couple! Two new titles and a new mission: to love and cherish each other for the rest of our lives.

A Reflection from Marriage Matters (www.twoinoneflesh.org.uk) for this Sunday 

First Sunday of Advent (Isaiah 2:1-5   Romans 13:11-14:   Matthew 24:37-44)

Walk in the light of the Lord

God’s Word is clear – we can only be certain of each current moment in our day-to-day lives. To live as couples in the ‘present moment’ more often, we need to apply ourselves to today’s call from Jesus to “stay awake”. Also St Paul tells us, “the time has come: you must wake up now”, because now is all we have.

Let us radiate His life and light and goodness

‘Today you will be with me in paradise’ – Jesus’ words as He hung on the cross; even in His agony, He still chose only to love.

Thirty-third Sunday in Ordinary Time (Malachi 3:19-20;  2 Thes 3:7-12;  Luke 21:5-19)

Go on quietly working at our marriage, stand before God together

In marriage, one partner can work hard at the relationship, the other take it for granted. When both work at it, marriage can be the most marvellous relationship possible. Today, take time to stand before God together and ‘the sun of righteousness will shine out with healing in its rays’. We all need this healing. Let’s reaffirm our vows today.

Rejoice, our reward is great in heaven

Today we are asked to believe in God’s untiring love. When we married we said ... ‘til death us do part’; this helps us live in sure and certain hope of eternal life as He promised. We seek to not be distracted by outside pressures, but to turn to each other in our difficulties and to listen with open hearts.

The Marie Curie Helper Service is Recruiting

The Marie Curie Helper service recruits, trains and supports volunteers to support terminally ill people (defined as anyone with any terminal illness, not just cancer) who are in the last 12 months of life.

This support follows the terminally ill person wherever they are, whether it be in their own home, hospice, hospital or nursing home. Our volunteers provide companionship, emotional support, practical support, provide a break for carers, information giving and signposting.

The support may be face to face (which it normally is) or could be by telephone if the person isn’t up to a physical visit. The same volunteer will then sometimes provide bereavement support for that person’s carer or loved one for up to 3 months after death.

This is an amazing service with incredible volunteers. Marie Curie is now recruiting more volunteers. If you or anyone you know has any questions about the service or wishes to know more, please do not hesitate to give Jan the Volunteer Coordinator a call on 0800 304 7402 or 07928 525611


CLAIRE HOUSE HUNTS CROSS SHOP

Claire House Children’s Hospice helps seriously and terminally ill children live life to the full by creating wonderful experiences and bringing back a sense of normality to family life. 
They couldn’t survive without the help of our wonderful volunteers and are always looking for new volunteers at our Hunts Cross shop, located on the Hunts Cross retail park. 
If you have a few hours to spare, please contact  Jessica Murray on 343 0883 for more information.

VOLUNTEER WITH NUGENT

"Volunteering gives me opportunities that I wouldn’t have had." Volunteering is a great way to boost your skills, improve your CV, meet new people and give back to your community. There are currently volunteering opportunities in the Nugent Charity Shop on Allerton Road, Liverpool. It is one of the most popular charity shops in the area, with a lot of regular customers and the team have sold over 40,000 items so far this year and raised over £90,000 for Nugent’s community services.

Volunteers in the Charity Shop get involved in all aspects, from sorting stock to taking payments, but most of all they are the face of Nugent for all of their regular customers.

Give Colin a call now on 0151 261 2041 to find out how you could volunteer with Nugent, or email, . "It's great fun too, seeing new and old faces and having a chance to chat." Find out more at wearenugent.org
