I would like to begin by congratulating all the children who made their First Holy Communions over
the past two weeks. They were truly great celebrations! May the children and their families continue to
grow in love of Jesus Christ and imitate him in all they say and do.

I repeat my invitation to the children; if they want to become Altar Servers they are to turn up 15
minutes early in the Sacristy to be robed by the other servers!

On Saturday July 8th at 11 am there will be a special Mass for Altar Servers followed by a BBQ, if any
parents of servers or otherwise could help organise the BBQ bit, weather permitting to take place in
the courtyard in from of the Hall, please contact me or the Parish Office.

Our prayers go to the young people from our parish who will be confirmed by Bishop Richard at Worth
Abbey on Sunday at 3pm. We pray for the outpouring of the Holy Spirit upon them at this critical stage
in their spiritual and human lives.

Thursday this week is a Holy Day of Obligation for the Feast of Saints Peter and Paul and there will be
Mass at 10am, 2pm (St John’s School) and 7pm.

Please keep in your prayers the Repose of Soul of Bernard Marchant and Geoffrey Walker and to pray
for their families. The Requiem Masses will take place this Wednesday at 2pm and Friday at 10am

Next Sunday we will be welcoming the Scouts to our 9:15am Mass as they will have their parade.

I am writing this having come back from the Jubilarians’ Mass and lunch at Arundel Cathedral. I
spoke with Fr Charles Jeffries who is celebrating his Golden Jubilee, Fr Charles reminded me that
he was ordained to the Priesthood at St John’s, he asks for our prayers, our best wishes and prayers
to go to the other priests: Fr Chris Spain and Fr Tony Collins (25 years) and Fr Kieran Gardiner and Fr
Michael Masterson (40 years).

With my prayers and good wishes for the week ahead.
