IN THE PINK Trinity 8 17th July 2016

Number 352
St.Mary Magdalene’s Patronal Festival
We shall be keeping the Patronal Festival at St.Mary Mags this coming weekend so make sure it is in your diary.

Saturday Evening
As a special treat we shall also be having Solemn Evensong and Benediction at 6 pm on Saturday 23rd when St Mary’s Singers will be joining us. This will be the first time in many years that we will have enjoyed Benediction, which was once a regular part of the liturgical routine at SMM. The music will be very special and we will have a chance to use our famous monstrance.  Do come along and enjoy a drink afterwards.

Sunday Morning
On Sunday 24th July, we shall be celebrating with a combined service at 11 am, so no service at St. Peter’s next Sunday. Our preacher will be Fr Neil Bunker who is well-known to us as Liaison Priest for Mental Health in Westminster, but who has also been Priest-in-Charge of St Mary’s, Bourne Street, for the last few months. James has recruited a choir who will sing a mass setting for us, and we are baptizing Aimee and Richard’s baby daughter, Althaea, so it will be a full service! As usual there is a party afterwards. All are welcome.

Book Club
For the July meeting of the Book Club, at 7.30pm on Wednesday 20th July, the book to read is “Instructions for a Heatwave” by Maggie O’Farrell. We meet in the Meeting Room, in St.Peter’s House. There will be a poster for you to sign up if you are coming.

Food Bank
The North Paddington Food Bank is in urgent need of more food. Especially needed are tinned meat and fish. They have enough pasta. Please bring stuff and put it into the bins in church.

Confirmation
Confirmation is the rite of adult commitment to the Church, and the way that adults are admitted to Communion. We are starting to plan confirmation preparation, so if you are a worshipper, but don’t receive communion, do talk to Fr Henry or Fr Reji about being prepared for Confirmation.

Fr Henry
Fr Henry is at the Tour de France this weekend. He will (obviously) be back before the Patronal Festival at SMM.
