Roof Repairs at St Augustine's

This week a new fundraising initiative has been started in the form of a JustGiving Page which can be found here. It has been started by Queenie Sukhoe, and she has undertaken to cut off her hair for the fundraising effort. After only a few hours over £120 has been raised.

Thank you so much to Sir Harold Hood’s Charitable Trust for donating £2,000.00 to our Church Roof Fundraising Appeal. This will help us enormously in our efforts to repair the Church Roof. We are truly grateful.

We have been very blessed to receive a cheque in the sum of £5,000 from the Benefact Trust in response to our application.  This will be used towards the very necessary roof repairs which will cost more than £50,000.We are extremely grateful to the Benefact Trust for their generosity to our Parish.

Lay Readers

The role of the Lay Reader - or lector, is to instill the Word of God into the hearts of the congregation. At St Augustine's we emphasise the importance of this role and encourage the reader to develop a spiritual perspective in his/her reading.

We encourage parishioners of all ages to come forward if they would like to participate in the liturgy in this way. Please speak to Maggie - she would love to hear from you.

In a recent catechesis on the Mass, Pope Francis spoke of the importance of having good readers:

When the Sacred Scriptures are read in the Church, God himself speaks to his people, he told pilgrims on 31st January 2018. “We must look for good readers!” he said “not those who mutter and nothing is understood. They must be prepared and rehearse before the Mass in order to read well. And this creates a climate of receptive silence.”1
