News for this Week
NEWSLETTERS: We have been asked if, in common with other local parishes, we can produce a weekly printed newsletter. The Archdiocese of Birmingham has expressly stated that anything used in the Mass and provided by the parish should be 'disposed of prior to leaving the church'. This does seem to suggest that we should NOT leave newsletters or anything similar for collection by those attending Mass. A limited number of copies of the newsletter are available from the Rectory but extreme care must be taken with any subsequent distribution.
Of your charity pray for the repose of the soul of Sr. Breda MURPHY, who died January 19th 2020. A former Head Mistress of the School. May he rest in peace.
Rest in Peace:
Riky HACKETT's Funeral will be at the Wyre Forest Crematorium next Friday at 1:30 pm. Please pray for his family at this very difficult time.
