Prayer Advocates’ Intention is to pray for all who have been bereaved recently.
RIP. Please pray for the repose of the soul of Mary Gilbey from Great Harrowden who died recently. Mary used
to attend the
8am Mass at Our Lady’s with Peter and Rosalie Croft from Wellingborough. Her Requiem Mass is on Monday 17th August at
10.30am at St. Hubert’s Chapel in Great Harrowden.
Appeal. Next Sunday, 23rd August, 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.
