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.

The Sacrament of Confirmation

“By the sacrament of Confirmation, [the baptised] are more perfectly bound to the Church and are enriched with a special strength of the Holy Spirit. Hence they are, as true witnesses of Christ, more strictly obliged to spread and defend the faith by word and deed.”

Confirmation: Its Definition and Its Effects

Confirmation is the sacrament by which Catholics receive a special outpouring of the Holy Spirit. Through Confirmation, the Holy Spirit gives them the increased ability to practice their Catholic faith in every aspect of their lives and to witness Christ in every situation.

Briefly the effects of Confirmation are as follows:

  • An increased portion of the gifts of the Holy Spirit: wisdom, knowledge, right judgment, understanding, courage, piety, and fear of the Lord
  • A deepening and strengthening of the grace received at Baptism, which is considered the presence of God in the soul
  • A more intimate relationship with Jesus Christ
  • A closer bond with the Catholic Church
  • The ability to take a greater, more mature role in the Church’s mission of living the Christian faith daily and witnessing to Christ everywhere
  • A special mark, or character, on the soul that can never be erased

Each person’s ability to embrace these effects depends on his or her openness to the sacrament and willingness to accept it as God’s personal gift.
