Today: Second Collection for LIFE

Today & Every Sunday
Please join us for coffee after the 10.30 Mass every Sunday.  Thanks to the kindness of one family, coffee will also be available after the 8 o’clock Mass.

This Monday: Resurfacing Work at St Gregory’s
Major work to replace the tarmac on the drive and the area outside the Presbytery commences on Monday 17th February, and will take at least a week to complete.  Pedestrian access to the Presbytery and hall will be maintained throughout, but no vehicles will be able to park outside the Presbytery.  The car park will remain open, although an area at the church end will be coned off to accommodate the contractor’s vehicles.  While this work continues, pedestrian access to the church and hall from the car park should be via the vehicular entrance, the Woodstock Road pavement, and the steps in front of the church. 

This Friday: Preparation for Consecration to Our Lady (on 25th March) Begins
Copies of the book of prayers and readings for the preparation are available in the narthex.

Next Sunday: Second Collection for the Good Counsel Network (Pro-Life Charity)

Advance Notice: Further Second Collections
There will be second collections for Cathedral maintenance on 1st March and Family Fast Day on 8th March.

Eternal and incarnate Wisdom,
most lovable and adorable Jesus,
true God and true man,
only Son of the eternal Father, and of Mary always Virgin,
I adore you profoundly,
dwelling in the splendour of your Father from all eternity,
and in the virginal womb of Mary, your most worthy Mother,
at the time of your Incarnation.
