Fourth Sunday of the Year A 30th January 2011
We are very pleased to welcome to the parish

Sr. Chinedum Nwadike and Mary Joseph Ogbuokiri, who are now living in Sherrick Green Rd, will be introducing themselves after Mass next weekend.
The Holy Family Sisters of the Needy was founded on 19th March 1983 by a Holy Ghost priest the Very Rev. Fr. Denis Mary Joseph Ononuju Cssp. This was in respone in response to the outcry and misery of poor and marginalized people following the Nigerian Civil war.Their charism is to care for and give solace to the Poor and the Needy. Though founded in Nigeria, it is a Missionary Religious Order. The spirituality of our Religious Order is modeled on that of St. Therese of Lisieux - the Little Way of St. Therese exemplified in love, simplicity of life and childlike confidence in God. Their motto is “I shall gladly spend and be spent for the poor.” They now run orphanages and residences for the elderly.
On 26th June 2007, Rt. Rev. Monsignor John Armitage, the Vicar General of the Catholic Diocese of Brentwood invited the “Sisters of the Needy” to open up a Mission in Brentwood Diocese. Now they have obtained a house in Sherrick Green Road. If anyone would like to contact them you do so through Clergy House, or email:, or meet them after next Sunday’s Mass, or any other they attend – their distinctive habit is dark blue.
In London they work with homeless girls and children, especially those who find themselves in difficult situations due to unwanted pregnancy. Some of them are being ejected by their boy friend, who would prefer abortion, or by their land lord, because their pregnancy would not allow them work and get money to pay their rent. The sisters also help in the Pastoral work of the Parish that they are attached to.
The final goal of all their work is helping them to experience the love of God, and so to know their great value. For further information about the Order visit the website at:
