Missionary Appeal.
Today we welcome Fr. Frank Nolan from the Missionaries of Africa (The White Fathers) who will
celebrate all our Masses at Our Lady’s as well as at St. Anselm’s. There will be a retiring collection
at the end of each Mass.
“The Missionaries of Africa, aka The White Fathers are an international team of priests, brothers and lay associates from
Africa, Britain and many countries around the world.
Any ministry which has a real relationship with Africa, no matter in what
part of The world it may be, is considered by the Missionaries of Africa to be within the scope of the apostolate. Through
Parish
work, Building up small Christian communities, working with the media, involvement in justice and peace, agriculture,
seminary training, education and social welfare, the Missionaries of Africa aim
to work in partnership with the Church in
Africa …….. and above all else, to help build up the leadership of the Churches.”
New Priest in Charge. Fr. Henry will be leaving us this
month for Beaconsfield Parish and he will say his last Masses at Gt.
Billing and Sacred Heart on Sunday 30th August. We will be sad to see him go, but we wish him every happiness and
fulfilment
in his new role. Fr. Jerry Manomey from the Archdiocese of Accra, Ghana, who is currently supplying in Daventry,
will become our new Priest in Charge from the beginning of September and he will be living
at the Presbytery at Sacred
Heart, Weston Favell. We look forward to welcoming him to our churches at Gt. Billing, Earls Barton and Weston Favell.
Assisted Dying Bill Postcards. The vote
on this Private Members Bill is on 11th September. If you have not yet written to
your MP to ask him/her to vote against it, please take a postcard from the back of the church, fill it in and send
it to your MP.

This will take place on Sunday 6th September and will be led by Bishop Alan Hopes, Bishop of East Anglia. Please see the posters at the back of the church for
further details.
Sea Sunday Appeal 2015. We have received a letter from the Apostleship of the Sea to thank us for our donation to the work which is done by them. There is another, inexpensive
way in which we may help seafarers. If you have any rosaries, prayer cards and books, medals, etc that you are currently not using but would like to pass on to others in need, please see Irena, who will
then arrange to pass them on to the Apostleship of the Sea chaplains. The seafarers say that these items give them
comfort when they are away from home for so long and that they draw them ever-nearer
to the love and trust in God and Stella Maris, Our Lady, Star of the Sea. By this kind generosity, the seafarers also take comfort knowing the kindness extended to them by our parishioners and keep them
in prayers of thanksgiving. Please, though, do not include any of the old Missals as they are of no use to the seafarers.
