News for this Week
Thanks: Jan PURVEY and family would like to thank Fr. Lamb and all those parishioners who offered their condolences to them on the recent death of Peter. All your prayers, sympathy, cards and Mass cards have been a great comfort to all the family and have helped us through this difficult time. God Bless. Today is World Mission Sunday: World Mission Sunday supports missionaries who work alongside communities that are poor or in need, regardless of their background or belief. By supporting Missio, the Pope's charity for world mission, you will help missionaries like Sr. Nilceia share the love of Christ with those most in need. Please pray for the mission of the Church throughout the world and give what you can to this very important collection which will sustain the future of our Church. There is a collection for this work at our Masses this weekend.
Recently Deceased: Please pray for Clara Doreen Reynolds, formerly of Shrubbery Street and Wolverley. Her Funeral has been arranged for Friday, October 30th at 1:15 pm prior to cremation at Wyre Forest.

Feast Days This Week:
(October 19th - October 25th)On Monday we shall celebrate the Commemoration of St. Paul of the Cross, the founder of the Passionist Order. He prayed daily for the conversion of England, and in the 19th century, Blessed Dominic Barberi, Ven. Ignatius Spencer and others came here to evangelise and bring about what Cardinal Newman described as the 'Second Spring'. Thursday is the Commemoration of Pope St John Paul II, whose powerful personality and profound spirituality dominated the Christian world during his long pontificate (1978 - 2005). His pastoral visits gave new life to the countries he visited, and his amazing intellect has left us a rich volume of teaching. His great love was for Our Lady.
HOLY SOULS in NOVEMBER
Coronavirus restrictions prevent us from making available lists and envelopes for the Holy Souls remembrance this year. However, names may be listed and placed in envelopes from home, and will be received as usual in a basket provided near the Sanctuary. PLEASE DO NOT PUT ANY MONEY IN THE ENVELOPES as current regulations insist that, once November ends, the lists must be burned.
Cemetery Prayers: We have permission from the respective Authorities to gather on November 1st in both our cemeteries for our November Cemetery Prayers for the Dead. We shall meet in our usual places and as we suggested last week, a general blessing will be given over each plot, rather than individual graves. Our services will start at 3 pm.
St. Ambrose's Red Mission Boxes: Please leave the boxes AT
THE RECTORY, as we are not, at the moment, allowed to have them left in the
Church because of Covid 19 rules. Please be generous as the Missions are badly
in need. Thank you.
CONFIRMATION: I am very grateful to Miriam Cunliffe and George Nixon, who have kindly agreed to act as Sponsors on behalf of the Parish for those being Confirmed by Bishop David Evans on December 7th. It is good for us to know that two exemplary Parishioners will be supporting our candidates and their families.
Please pray for: Trina Cole, Pat O' Doherty, Peter
Strangward, Rev. Fr. Bruce Dutson, Peter Hesketh, Jessie
Tolley, Annie Holcroft, Veronica Pugh, Sheila
Mikulicz, Teresa Westwood, Edward Sage, Jackie Sands.
