Dear Brothers & Sisters

Monday is the Feast of Andrew Taegon & the Korean Martyrs. Korea, closed to the outside world for centuries, found Christ via trade with China in the 1780’s. Over the next century more than 10,000 Koreans were executed for their loyalty to Christian faith. With few priests around, this was an almost entirely lay witness. Pope John Paul II paid tribute to this phenomenon when he canonised them in 1984.

Tuesday is the day of Matthew Apostle & Evangelist.. a tax collector working for the romans before Jesus called him.

Thursday is the Feast of Padre Pio, well know for the stigmata and for his counsel. He was popular in this country even during his lifetime.

Friday is the day of Our Lady of Walsingham, our own national shrine of Our Lady. Many people in our parish have been there on day-pilgrimages. With travel to Lourdes still on hold, some have discovered the Madonna of Walsingham.

Friday also has two optional saints: Saint Stephanie a young 18 year old girl who gave her life for Christ’s sake in 4th century Egypt…...and... Blessed Emilie Taverier-Gamelin who after a few years of marriage & then widowhood, founded the daughters of Charity in Canada 200 years ago.

Apologies: Because Fr Enrico & Fr Austin are out of action this week two planned Mass intentions cannot be fulfilled as intended: originally 7.30 am Sept 23-24 for Colin Simmons, and Joseph & Agnes Atherton; & they will be rescheduled as soon as possible.

This week the church will be floodlit in honour of Tony McSkeane
