THE FUTURE FOR THE REDEMPTORISTS:
FR ANDREW BURNS:
Prayers too please for Fr Andrew: unfortunately, he was unable to have his treatment last Tuesday because he has a touch of pneumonia and is at present in hospital as they try to resolve the problem.
1st September – 4th October (Feast of St Francis of Assisi) Pope Francis asks the question to Christians and non-Christians alike: “What kind of world do we want to leave to those who come after us, to children who are now growing up?”
The Pope reminds us that the Earth is our common home and calls us to an “ecological conversion,” inviting us to change direction in caring for this planet we share.
Here is a fabulous documentary on the wonders of our planet: https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/m000m7wj/planet-earth-a-celebration
Our organist and choir master Nick Young, has prepared a wonderful walking meditation around the church grounds with a leaflet to guide you along the way. You can collect a copy as you leave church. (For those who cannot make it to the church you can download a copy by clicking here)
STORIES FROM LIFE DURING LOCKDOWN:
ST MARYS CHILDREN’S LITURGY:
When lockdown was announced none of us understood the impact it would have on everything we do and just how inventive and creative people would be in finding new ways to be ‘together’ and new ways to worship. As well as watching Fr Tim’s weekly message and tuning in to the recorded Mass each weekend, we have enjoyed sharing our children’s liturgy live stream at 11:00am each Sunday with more than 50 families!! (stmarys with you always Facebook group)
Our catechists have taken it in turn to broadcast from their homes, following our Gospel story, praying for our special intentions, singing our favourite hymns, sharing craft and other activities, and generally keeping our community together.
Our children have been the real superstars - sharing their ideas during our live-streams and posting photographs of their work afterwards. Some of our most moving prayers have been written by our children and we have learned a lot from them.
We have even managed a couple of group video productions with our ‘Children’s Stations of the Cross’ on Good Friday and our ‘Freddie Freckles and a Big Celebration’ story for Fr Tim’s Golden Jubilee.
Our livestream might have been born out of necessity, but we will continue with it because it is working so well, and we are having fun whilst celebrating our faith. We are looking forward to our next project - watch out for our budding gardeners. Please see the website for photos and videos.
