Is the Patronal Festival at St.Peter’s, so we are giving thanks to God for our patron saint, the Prince of the Apostles. There will be food and drink after the service in the Hall. Please do stay for the party.
Fr Reg Bushau
Fr Reg, who was Vicar of St.Mary Mags from 1988 to 1997, is celebrating the 40th anniversary of his ordination to the priesthood with a Mass at which the Bishop of Fulham will preside at St.Stephen’s,
Gloucester Road, (where he is Vicar) at
7pm on Monday 29th June. Fr.Trevor Jones SSC (Vicar of St.Peter’s,
London Docks) will preach. Fr.Reg has asked us to let all the crew at St.Mary
Mags know, so do go along.

Thanks to a change in the way the governing bodies are made up both PCCs need to appoint an extra governor, so if you would be interested in becoming a governor at either St.Peter’s or St.Mary Magdalene’s School, please speak to Fr.Henry.
St.Peter’s Children’s Church needs more volunteers in order to continue after the holidays, but most importantly we need all involved to get their DBS check done. The Diocese requires us to make sure all children’s church volunteers are properly checked according to best safeguarding practice, so please do your DBS form! This is really important; see Julie Benet if you need help with the DBS process.
St.Peter’s PCC meets on Wednesday 8th July, and St.Mary Mags on Thursday 16th July.
