Father John writes:

This Sunday: Second Collection for the Second Century Fund

Advance Notice: Finance Committee
There will be a meeting of the Finance Committee at 6 p.m. this Tuesday, 23rd, in the Presbytery.

Advance Notice: Further Second Collections
There will be second collections for Home Missions on 15th September, Father Hudson’s Care on 22nd September, and Harvest Fast Day on 29th September.

Advance Notice: Ride & Stride 2019 – 14th September
Each year cyclists, walkers, and horse-riders raise sponsor money for the Oxfordshire Historic Churches Trust by visiting as many of the churches and chapels of the county on a single day as they can.  The individual churches receive 50% of the money their riders and striders raise.  Last year I raised over £1000.  I warmly invite you to take part in this year’s Ride and Stride by riding or striding yourself, or by being one of the team of welcomers who offer refreshments to the weary participants.  Please let me know if you are interested.

Mass Intentions
Having a Mass offered for a loved one, living or dead, or for oneself, is a beautiful act of faith, hope, and charity.  If you would like a Mass said, please use one of the small brown envelopes in the narthex.

Last Week’s Collection: £516.51 - Thank you!

Please Pray for the Sick and Housebound
Fr Jerome Bertram CO, Peter de Bono, Christopher Browne, Clifford Browne, Fr Paul Chavasse CO, Maureen Dalton, Eileen Healy, Jill Kelly, Emily Long, John Marsh, Elsie Maria Michaud, Anne Morris, Joy Smith, and Clare Wagstaff.

Please Pray for the Souls of the Faithful Departed
Please pray for the repose of the souls of all the departed, especially for Margaret Eileen Allen, Kathleen Conway, William Maloney, Gwendoline Gertrude Todd, and Marion Teresa Woods, who have anniversaries at this time.

Thou art in the Sacrifice of the Mass,
Thou art in the Tabernacle, verily and indeed, in flesh and blood;
and the world not only disbelieves, but mocks at this gracious truth.
Thou didst warn us long ago by Thyself and by Thy Apostles
that Thou wouldst hide Thyself from the world.
The prophecy is fulfilled more than ever now; but I know what the world knows not.
O accept my homage, my praise, my adoration!
The more men scoff, the more will I believe in Thee, the good God, the good Jesus,
the hidden Lord of life,
who hast done me nothing else but good from the very first moment that I began to live.

Blessed John Henry Newman
