Sunday Reflection with Fr Robin Gibbons

21 May 2017

Sixth Sunday of Easter 2017. One of the greatest gifts that Vatican II gave back to Catholics of the Latin Rite has been the real opening out of the Scriptures, so that over a three-year Sunday cycle (not to mention the weekday cycle) we are given access to a wonderful selection from the Hebrew …..

Sixth Sunday of Easter

Layola Press a Jesuit Ministry

Today’s Gospel is a continuation of last week’s Gospel: Jesus is speaking to his disciples at the Last Supper. In today’s reading Jesus offers encouragement to his disciples, who will soon see him crucified. He reassures them that even though he will leave them, he will not abandon them.

‘The Catholic Church has at most 10 years to adapt’

Supporting values that the majority of people have rejected makes us irrelevant

The Catholic Church, as well as everyone else, must understand

that the world was hit by a cultural tsunami in the 20th century.

We must humbly begin to pick up the pieces and put them back together again.

Parish Offertory

Sincere thanks for last week’s offerings: £1477.35

Gift Aid: £843.27

Loose Plate: £634.08

Gift Aid

If you are a UK taxpayer, you could add 25p to every £1 that you give to this parish at no cost to yourself by enabling us to reclaim the tax that you have paid on your donation, with Gift Aid. Simply put your donation in a completed and signed Gift Aid envelope and we’ll do the rest.

What is Gift Aid?

Gift Aid is a government scheme that allows your parish to    reclaim the tax that you have paid on your donation.

 It works like this. If you are a taxpayer and give £10 to your parish, you will have paid tax on that amount. Your parish can get £2.50 back with Gift Aid, so your donation of £10 would become worth £12.50 and it wouldn’t cost you an extra   penny.

How do I sign Up for Gift Aid?

All you have to do is to fill in a Gift Aid form that requires you to: Give your name your

address, the date and the name of your parish. Sign a

declaration saying that you are a UK taxpayer and that you that you pay tax that is equal or

equivalent to the amount that your parish will reclaim.
