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.
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.
Cottage to Let
There is a cottage to let in Kidlington. For more information please phone Anne on 01865 514787 or phone/text 0774 828 3362.

O most merciful God, who for the salvation of sinners and the refuge of the wretched,
hast made the Immaculate Heart of Mary most like in tenderness and pity to the Heart of Jesus,
grant that we, who now commemorate her most sweet and loving heart,
may by her merits and intercession, ever live in the fellowship of the Hearts of both Mother and Son, through the same Christ our Lord. Amen.
