Singing the Mass

Recording of Sunday services

Please be aware that for the next few weeks we will be recording Mass on Sunday morning and then posting the video onto our church YouTube channel. It is unlikely that you will be filmed as the camera is in a fixed position facing the altar but if you want to ensure that you aren’t filmed please let Father Alex know. The recording should be available from mid-afternoon of the Sunday on which it was recorded.

Notices

If you have any information that you would like to include in the notices, please let Father Alex have it by the Thursday before the Sunday you would like it publicising.


Praying during Ascensiontide

As we enter a time of waiting for the Holy Spirit to descend at Pentecost I would like to invite you to take part in a prayer activity for those people who are important to you and to God. Details and stones can be found in the Narthex. If you have any questions just let Father Alex know.




Holy Communion in both kinds

Given the recently changed Church of England advice we will be offering communion in both kinds from Ascension Day (Thursday 26th May). There is no requirement to take the common cup but it will be offered if you would like to take it. If you have any questions please let Father Alex or Paul know.


Ryan Lawlor

Ryan leaves us after this Sunday's service and we wish him all the best in his future endeavours. It has been wonderful to have the organ played once more during our services and we have thoroughly enjoyed having Ryan as part of the St Michael and All Angels family.


Cream Tea

Please make a note in your diary that there will be a Cream Tea in the Vicarage garden on Saturday 23rd July from 2pm until 4pm. Further details will be available in due course.

Queens Platinum Jubilee

If you haven’t taken an invitation yet to offer to a friend for the breakfast on Sunday 5th June there are spare ones in the Narthex. In order to provide sufficient catering can you indicate on the sheet in the Narthex the number of people you have invited.


Queens Platinum Jubilee - Fruit trees

To mark the Platinum Jubilee, we will be planting seven fruit trees (one for each decade that the Queen has been on the throne) around the church grounds. If you would like to make a donation towards this project please leave an envelope marked ‘Trees’ in the collection basket. If you would like any further information please don’t hesitate to ask Father Alex.



Used postage stamps

Please bring in any used postage stamps for our collection in the Narthex. They will be used to support the work of the Royal National Institute of Blind People (RNIB).


Prayers for this week

 

Saint Cyprians

Send your Holy Spirit to draw those who live in Hay Mill to the community open day on the 8th June.

 

Saint Michael and All Angels

May Ryan be blessed in his next adventures and may he know your encouraging and sustaining presence working out your plans for him.

Now we are moving back to visiting residential homes, may you guide us and help all who interact with us, that they may know our Lord loves and cares for them all.
