Thankyou from CAFOD
Thank you for your generous donations to CAFOD’s Family Fast Day during Lent. We featured Marian and her son Svondo in Zimbabwe in Lent 2018. The community vegetable garden that your donations helped provide is growing well and during the pandemic the family has survived on the vegetables. Your support has also helped to provide soap and handwashing stations in the garden and in family homes. This is just one of many long-term development projects that CAFOD has funded with the money from that Fast Day. Thank you for your steadfast support.
With thanks and best wishes,
Community Participation Coordinator – CAFOD in East Anglia and Brentwood

STATEMENT FROM THE BISHOP OF EAST ANGLIA
The Bishop, together with the Catholics of the Diocese of East Anglia, pray for the repose of the soul of His Royal Highness, the Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh. In mourning his death, we express our sincere condolences to Her Majesty the Queen and the Royal Family. Prince Philip’s long life was marked by an extraordinary example of duty and service to his Queen and his country. Countless individuals will have been touched by his many initiatives, particularly young people. His fidelity in family life, even in times of difficulty, has been inspiring. May he now rest in peace.
The Rt Rev Alan S Hopes
Bishop of East Anglia
is a daily prayer session, designed to go with you wherever you go, to help you pray whenever you find time, but particularly whilst travelling to and from work, study, etc. A new prayer session is produced every day of the working week and one session for the weekend. It is not a 'Thought for the Day', a sermon or a bible-study, but rather a framework for your own prayer. Lasting between ten and thirteen minutes, it combines music, scripture and some questions for reflection.
Our aim is to help you to become more aware of God's presence in your life, listen to and reflect on God's word, grow in your relationship with God. We also have a number of prayer tools, retreats and resources to help supplement your prayer life.Pray as you go (pray-as-you-go.org)
Mass intentions available to book for All Souls and Our Lady of Lourdes .
Mass Intention Envelopes are available at the back of the church at All Souls & Our Lady of Lourdes or please use your own with Name of Deceased or Intention for, which church, preferred date, or as soon as possible & post through the letterbox. Please write clearly and enclose offering. Thank you so much for your generosity.
Selection of a New Bishop of East Anglia
Bishop, Alan Hopes has informed us that the process has now begun to select a new Bishop of East Anglia. He asks each of us to recite this prayer for God’s guidance and blessings.
O God, eternal shepherd,
who govern your flock with unfailing care, grant in your boundless fatherly love
a pastor for your Church
who will please you by his holiness and to us show watchful care. Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you
in the unity of the Holy Spirit,
God, for ever and ever. Amen
Our Lady of Walsingham. Pray for us.
Saint Felix. Pray for us.
Saint Oswald. Pray for us.
All Holy Martyrs and Saints of East Anglia. Pray for us.
Thank you to all you for raising the sum of £1034 for CAFOD’s Lent
Appeal. The figure was just the cash donations, many parishioners
donated directly online and also through Text. We appreciate your
generosity, especially in this difficult time.
We offer a voluntary advice/mentoring scheme for all Catholics considering or creating an enterprise (whether a business, professional firm, social enterprise, or a charity). Our mission is to encourage and support Catholics to do good (for themselves/stakeholders/the Church/society) by turning their passions into successful (not-)for-profit enterprises. For more information: https://enterprisingcatholics.org/
APART from collections required by the Holy See there will be no second collections this year, due to the current crisis. Many charities are using reserves and are struggling at this difficult time, please try and support these charities. Listed below are the main ones we support.

The East Anglian Diocesan Youth Service
exists to help young people in Norfolk, Suffolk, Cambridgeshire and Peterborough to connect with Jesus Christ and his Catholic Church.
We carry out this mission through the running of various events across East Anglia, by providing support to parishes and schools and also through the Ignite Team, which visits schools and churches to run retreats, activities and workshops.

Visiting Support Service for Older People in Peterborough.
Age UK have identified the significant need for additional support to be made available to older people in Peterborough, we are therefore able to provide free extra assistance for those over 65 in Peterborough when they need it most; particularly when they are experiencing a difficult period, such as bereavement, ill health, financial worries or housing concerns. We listen to your thoughts and wishes and together we will plan a desired outcome that helps you to access the services and support networks you need. Our Visiting Support Service for Older People (VSSOP) enables older people to stay independent and maintain health and wellbeing, by providing a service that meets individual need.
We can assist with forms, benefits, blue badges, organise bills, and assist with housing choices. If someone has a caring role we can support with this. The service can adapt to individual changing needs such as aids and equipment and falls prevention support. We also can also offer information about social opportunities and how you might access them. The team will decide if support can be given over the phone or if a home visit is needed, staff will have full PPE and socially distance. For more information or support please contact:
01354-776110 or email email@example.com

New Tax Year - Gift Aid Boxes 6th April 2021 – 6th April 2022
Gift Aiders, please pick up your box for the New tax year if able to do so. You can either pick your box after Mass at the weekends from the priests or pick up during the week from the Administrator who will be in the Sacristy after weekday Masses. I have a list of names and either myself or a priest will allocate you a box (sequential order), it will not be the same number box as you had the previous tax year. If you are not on the list we will take your name and contact number and call you.
Please inform the office of any changes of names and addresses also If you have changed to a direct debit payment or intend to as we will need to change your payment method. Please do not use the old 2020-21 envelopes as you will be allocated a new box number and this will cause confusion. Please pick up your new box and use from 11th April 2021. Thank you!
VERY IMPORTANT: If your circumstances have changed and you are no longer paying tax you must inform the parish office the date you stopped paying so we can amend our records and take you off the gift aid register. Unless we are informed by yourselves we will still claim tax on your behalf so it is very important that you inform the office if you have stopped paying tax immediately
