Daily Advent Reflections
Advent is a special time of year in prayer and preparation for the Lord’s coming. However it can also be a busy time, so here’s a link to have a daily Advent Reflection emailed to you each morning :-
Bishop Philip’s Visit to Sacred Heart
Bishop Philip will be celebrating Mass with us at Sacred Heart for his Visitation on Saturday 7th and Sunday 8th December (2nd Sunday of Advent). He will celebrate both Masses and the visit will conclude with a Holy Hour for vocations and Benediction at 12.45 pm on Sunday. Bishop Philip will also be available to hear confessions on Saturday evening from 5 pm—5:45 pm.
Knights of St Columba Advent Mass

Saturday 21st December at 3:00 pm
This year again all the children and young people of the parish have been warmly invited by the dear Sisters in the Convent to present a Christmas tableau and sing carols.
This is a very happy occasion and gives us an opportunity to do something good for the residents and Sisters. Father Christmas has promised to come with his sled. Please come, costumes will be provided. We would be grateful if you could come at 3:00 pm to put on your costumes. Singers will also be very welcome.

Each year Coats4Calais provides warm clothing for the refugees in Calais throughout the winter months.

Welcoming and helping our Neighbour
Following on from the talk from Rosie Lennon at both Masses at the end of April. We are looking to come together as a Pastoral area to help one family from the many tens of thousands who have no home, no life, no country to call their own, without hope or joy in their lives.
There are many different ways you could volunteer your talents to help e.g. find suitable housing, take family members to surgery, dentist or hospital; help with form filling, help them to learn English, show them the local shops; at all levels there are so many opportunities to show kindness and compassion to fellow humans who are living at barely subsistence level. The refugee “Community Sponsorship” program is Home Office approved and is based on a well-established process already proven in Canada. In our Diocese it will be overseen by Caritas, the social action agency of the Catholic Church.
If you would like to get involved and were not at the previous meetings, please email your contact details to caritas_NWHPA@portsmouthdiocese.org.uk to be added to our database of contacts.

RCIA—Journey in Faith
Each year we provide the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA). This is for those adults living in our parish who wish to become full members of the Catholic Church. This includes both those seeking baptism for the first time and those who were baptised in another Christian Community and who now seek to enter into the full communion of the Catholic Church.
For more information please contact the Parish Office ( 01256 577007)
The next meeting date will be shared soon so watch this space.
