As promised, here is an electronic copy of the worship booklet for this coming Sunday. We shall be live-streaming Mass at the usual time of 10:30am, and you are welcome to join us on the Facebook page for this, or pray along with us on your own or as a family group.
As we enter this final part of Lent, our worship becomes more austere as images are veiled and we focus ever more closely on the coming commemoration of the Lord's passion. May this time of difficulty be for each of us a way to draw closer to Christ in his trials in some small way, that we might grow in holiness and love.
With my love and prayers,
Diocesan Lent Appeal 2020
Wheels For Climate Change Emergencies
on behalf of ALMA, Angola London Mozambique Association
The focus is to raise money to buy powerful trucks to help churches and Bishops provide instant practical help where it is needed after the extreme climatic events that are happening due to climate change. Angola (significant drought in the South) and Mozambique (two recent Cyclones) are at the forefront of the increase in climate change humanitarian crises.
The law is changing to make the ways organisations collect and process personal data more transparent, and increasing control for individuals over what is shared, and how. As a result, we need your consent to continue to contact you about what is going on here at St Mary’s! Fr Chris will be writing to everyone asking for this permission. Please look out for the letter and return the form to him as soon as possible.
Further information is available on the Data Protection page of the website.
We will continue to have the sheet at the back of church for prayers for the sick and the departed, but please do not include surnames of the sick.
St Luke's Hospice
Please save your used stamps for St Luke's Hospice; they are sold to collectors in the hospice's charity shops. There is an envelope on the charities board at the back of the church, or you can give them to Alison.
Now that supermarkets have to charge for carrier bags they are no longer able to supply the Foodbank with them. Brent Foodbank would be very grateful for bags to distribute food to their clients.
