PARISH MISSION FROM 10 – 25 SEPTEMBER 2011

Led by the Sion Community from Brentwood in Essex

“Wake up, sleeper ”

(taken from Ephesians 5:14)

Our eagerly awaited Parish Mission is now here. It begins on Saturday 10th and ends on Sunday 25th September.
The first week (11th-16th September) is visiting week. A visiting team of 8 from the Sion Community, joined by some of our parishioners will try to visit as many households in the parish as possible. When they call at your home, please give them a warm welcome.

During this week, Mass times will be as usual both on weekdays and at the weekend. On Saturday 17th, there will be “Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament” from 10am to 10pm.

The second week of the mission begins on Saturday 17th September when the “Celebration Team” arrives, and they will conduct all the masses and services throughout the week.

Please try and join in as many events as possible.

On Sunday 25th at 12 noon, there will be a “Parish Party” at St. Joseph’s School Hall for us to celebrate the Mission together.
Please bring a plate of food to share
and join in the activities.

The Sion Team will introduce themselves at all Masses on the first weekend and the Mission Priest will give the Homily.
