Month of the Holy Rosary. October Devotions
Each Sunday of October at 3pm, there will be Rosary & Benediction. Please come along and pray with our Blessed Mother Mary, for peace in the world and for her assistance in our own lives.
First Friday Children’s Rosary in St John's
This Friday at 6:30pm. This is an opportunity, for children of all ages to gather together to pray the rosary. All families are invited to attend and pre-school children are very welcome. The idea is that children as young as 4 or 5 and up to around 14 can learn to lead the rosary and make the rosary part of their daily lives. The rosary only lasts around 15 minutes. Please contact Lesley Ward if you need any further information (firstname.lastname@example.org or call 07910266821).
First Friday Devotions 7pm-9pm
Begins with Mass at 7pm, followed by Adoration, Rosary, Benediction & Night Prayer.
We are hoping to extend Adoration in the Oratory to include Tuesdays & Thursdays. To do so we need more people to commit to one hour with the Blessed Sacrament at the same time each week. Many graces and favours come to us through this time spent with Lord. Vocations to Priesthood & Religious Life increase where there is Adoration as well as conversions and people returning to their faith. You can pick up a sign up form this weekend to return and place in the box beside the Sacred Heart Statue. No need for those already signed up to re-submit unless you also wish to sign for more hours on Tuesdays/Thursdays.

SPUC Conference Glasgow
A recent BBC poll revealed that 15% of British women have experienced pressure or coercion to have an abortion that they did not want. This is a shocking reality, that the pro-abortion narrative seeks to suppress. It is vital to understand the reasons why women have abortions so that we can campaign for protections for vulnerable women and their children. You are invited on Saturday 29th October to a conference. Cost £30/£20 concessions. The conference can be booked online here: https://www.spuc.org.uk/national-conferences-2022. You can also contact Katherine Hampton on email@example.com, or call: 01892 542 616.
