Diocesan Consultation – Re-organisation of Parishes:

During Mass on the Fifth Sunday in Lent, a Pastoral Letter from the Archbishop was read in all parishes in the Archdiocese.  This letter outlined the fact that changes in parish structures are inevitable throughout the Archdiocese as there are now more parishes than there are priests to serve those parishes, and some of the priests serving parishes are becoming somewhat advanced in years (in the Walsall deanery, three of the Parish Priests have passed their eightieth birthdays).  The Archbishop stated that a Consultation Document was in preparation: this has now been made available and may be read at the Diocesan website: www.birminghamdiocese.org.uk.  All parishes have been asked to hold a meeting to discuss this paper, and a letter be submitted from each parish to the Dean of each deanery by the end of June. Some copies of the Consultation Document are available at the back of the church. The date of our meeting will be announced later.

Late Mrs Margaret Lunn's funeral will take place in our church on Tuesday 15th May 2012 at 1.15pm, followed by the burial at Beacon Hill Cemetery at 2.30pm.

THE ICON OF OUR LADY OF JASNA GORA:  If you wish to receive the Holy Icon please come to the Sacristy to agree upon a date.

The Family of the Rosary of Jasna Gora: If you wish to join our community of prayer come to the sacristy to receive the certificate of membership and spiritual directions. For further information please pick up one of the leaflets at the back of the church.

IF YOU WISH A MASS TO BE SAID for either a relative or a friend, living or deceased, please see one of the priests.

If you are not able to get to Mass or if you are going into hospital, let Fr. Kazimierz know. If you notice someone you know from the church who has not been at Mass recently, please let us know.
