A reminder that this coming Sunday is going to be a day of great celebration for the parish. At 11am Mgr. Keith Newton will celebrate Mass at which several children will make their first communion. In addition a young man will be received into the Catholic church and confirmed. And Roy, a deacon in training attached to the Sevenoaks Ordinariate Group, will be admitted to the minor order of reader, an important stage on his spiritual journey.
It is going to be standing room only in church, so arrive in good time to secure a seat. We are also requesting that you refrain from using the car park- it is only for the disabled- as we need to utilise space for the celebrations. There is plenty of parking in the surrounding roads and a public car park at the recreation ground.
After Mass there will be a BBQ in the parish grounds. We have a barrel of Tunbridge Coppernob arriving for beer lovers and other drinks for those who prefer something else. We ask for a donation to cover the cost of meat and people are asked to bring a salad dish for the table.
And this will also be a gift day for the parish. We need to raise money to install the new stained glass window, pictured above, and renovate the terrible lighting. Leaflets detailing the project will be distributed and a gift box will be placed before the sacrament after Mass. Please place your gift here and remember to sign the gift aid form if applicable. Let us finish the magnificent renovation we have begun.
