Father John writes:
This Weekend: Second Collection
There will be a second collection for Father Hudson’s Society at each of the Masses this weekend.
I am holiday till Tuesday 27th September. I am grateful to Monsignor Vaughan Morgan, Fr Andrew Pinsent, Fr Richard Biggerstaff, and Fr Andrew Byrne for saying the Masses while I am away. For sick calls and in emergencies please call the Fathers of the Oratory on 01865 315800.
A Reminder about ‘the Facilities’
While the building work continues, the only WC that can be used during services is the one on the ground floor of the Presbytery. It can be reached by going through the garden on the right-hand side of the house and entering by the back door. Tea and coffee after the 10.30 Mass is being served in the Presbytery kitchen.
Advance Notice: Other Second Collections
There will be second collections for World Mission Day on 23rd October, the Johnson Association on 6th November, Catholic Youth Services on 20th November, the Second Century Fund on 27th November, and the Poor Parishes of the Archdiocese on 4th December.

O, my God, I will put myself without reserve into Thy hands.
Wealth or woe, joy or sorrow, friends or bereavement, honour or humiliation,
good report or ill report, comfort or discomfort,
Thy presence or the hiding of Thy countenance, all is good if it comes from Thee.
Thou art wisdom and Thou art love - what can I desire more?
Thou hast led me in Thy counsel, and with glory hast Thou received me.
What have I in Heaven, and apart from Thee what want I upon earth?
My flesh and my heart faileth: but God is the God of my heart, and my portion for ever.
Blessed John Henry Newman
