Dead: Please pray for the Grealy family of St. George’s Terrace, following the
death of John Grealy last Sunday evening. He had been in very poor health for
several years. On Wednesday morning we heard the shocking news of the death of
Christopher GOODMAN, who collapsed and died at home in Harrogate on Tuesday.
Many will remember his mother, Teresa, who was an Additional Minister of Holy
Communion for many years, and Christopher (who was 33 years of age) was an
Altar Server. He lived in the Rectory for a short time. May they rest in
Days this Week:
Monday we celebrate the memorial of St Aloysius Gonzaga, a young Italian Jesuit
who died while serving those suffering from the plague. Tuesday is the
important feast day of our first canonised English martyrs, St. John Fisher,
Bishop of Rochester, and St. Thomas More, sometime Lord Chancellor of England,
both martyred in 1535. Thursday is the Solemnity of the Birth of St. John the
Message from the Head Mistress: Over the past eighteen months, I feel as a
Parish community we have supported each other and grown stronger together. To
celebrate this achievement over the next few weeks different members of staff
will be leading community initiates including:
• A tea towel of hope available for
parents or parishioners to buy at either the end of term in July or September
• Plant a rainbow of hope. We will be
asking for plants in a range different colours to create a rainbow of hope.
Start thinking about your donation. We will be asking children and parishioners
to bring in bedding plants week beg 28th June. The colours we will be
requesting are as follows: Reception children red, Year 1 children orange, year
2 children yellow, Year 3 children green, Yellow 4 children blue, Year 5
children pink, Year 6 children purple (parishioners please choose any colour).
• The Teapot time and TAPP groups will
be in touch in the next few weeks asking for help to paint and refresh the
playground wall and parent shelter with a rainbow theme.
you for all your help and support. Emma. Brocklesby
