THREE SHEETS TO PICK UP THIS WEEKEND

1. For the talk this Friday evening (purple). It is given by a speaker who is popular around the world. He is good at eliciting a deeper interest in living our faith. His subject, the Real Presence of Christ in the Eucharist is right at the heart of faith and life. Please do come if you possibly can.

2. For our annual popular concert: “Gloria” on 5th June – with music in praise of God from Vivaldi, Bach, Beethoven, Mendelssohn, Chopin, Wolf, and Irish and Chinese Folk Tunes. Tickets now available and being sold outside Church next week. Please take a bundle of the small white publicity leaflets from the porch and pass around.

3. To volunteer to help at the upcoming diaconate ordination (20th June) – see white A4 in benches, fill and in and hand in today to one of the priests.

NEXT WEEK IS NATIONAL FAMILY WEEK 25th-31st May

The times you spend together with family can create special memories to treasure forever. So what will you do during National Family Week? So many things today mitigate against family life. Use next week as a chance to do something practical against the flow.Here are 7 ideas to get you thinking:
· Have a water bomb duel. Stand back to back. Walk five paces. Turn and throw your water bombs at each other. The winner is the first one to hit their rival.
· Have breakfast outside one day – hot porridge if it’s cold – and watch the sun rise.
· Start a new family tradition – a ‘party for no reason’. Invite parents, grandparents, cousins, aunties, uncles, nephews, nieces, and other family members.
· Have a ‘cinema night’ at home – take turns to pick a DVD. You could microwave some popcorn to enjoy while you watch.
· Make a date – inject a bit of romance into your marriage with a ‘date night’. Start making time for this once a week and do all you can to guard this precious time.
· Make a gingerbread family portrait. Buy a tub of gingerbread people from the supermarket, and some icing pens. Get each family member to decorate one, so that you’ve all created a family portrait. Then have fun eating each other! (Grown-ups will enjoy this too.)
· Take your parents out to lunch. Play ‘Guess the menu choice’ – everyone writes down what they think the others will order. The winner is the one who gets the most right. If you’re very adventurous, make everyone order for each other!
