PARISH CENSUS UPDATE
Apologies for the problems some of you had last weekend logging into the Registration page of the Parish Website to complete the Census form. The bug affecting that page is now fixed and normal service is resumed!
Please make sure that you and all of your family are registered. Encourage friends and fellow parishioners to complete the census as well. It is easier to do so online.
You still have the option of completing a paper version of the Census and returning to Fr Doug or one of the Ushers at the end of Mass.
During the week a good number of the Diamond Club completed the census form and this has now increased the number of forms completed to over 100 up from 54 last week. So keep up the good work we have nearly 800 attending Mass each week so that is our first target but we still have some way to go.
If there is someone you know who is housebound perhaps you can drop off a census form to them and help them complete it and return it to the parish.
REMINDER FOR ALL CATECHISTS
Our annual get together of Catechists is on Monday 16th July from 7.30pm, ln Hartley Hall.. Do you help with Children’s Liturgy, The Baptism Programme, First Communion, Confirmation, RCIA, or any other Catechesis in the parish? If you are at the School Leavers Production please join us afterwards.
This will be our last chance to meet together as a group of Catechists with Fr Doug.
BISHOP PAULIt was as been announced on Monday 9th July that Pope Francis has appointed Bishop Paul Mason as the next Bishop of the Forces. Bishop Paul was ordained as a Bishop in May 2016, and appointed to be an Auxiliary Bishop in the diocese.
If you are a Reader or Extraordinary Minister, the new Rota is now in place, please check one of the copies at each entrance.

Fifteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time Weekend of July 14/15, 2018
In his letter to the Ephesian community, St. Paul teaches that God, the Father, has established a divine plan to bring all of creation to Christ and that He has blessed us with the divine gifts to help implement that plan. Christian stewards know what their gifts are and remain committed to using them in the service of the Lord. Do we know what our gifts are? Do we believe that God has given us these gifts? Are we committed to using our gifts to serve the Lord?
