LIVESTREAM : There continue to be problems with the Saturday evening Livestream from SH. If this happens you can watch the Livestream from EM at 11 am on Sunday which seems more re liable. Sorry for any inconvenience.  

NEXT SUNDAY PENTECOST SUNDAY—we will be celebrating the Baptism, Confirmation and First  Communion of Leah and Ciari , two young women who wish to become members of the Church.  The ceremony will be incorporated into the Sunday Mass. No full immersion Baptism I’m afraid  (relieved). Please support them with your prayers and presence as they take this important step.  

REST IN PEACE : please pray for Tom Collins and baby Barnaby Smith who have died recently. Re membering too all those who are mourning their sad loss.

We therefore believe that the reasons which have prevented Catholics from attending Mass on  Sundays and Holy Days of Obligation no longer apply. We understand there will still be some  members of our congregations who, for reasons of health, do not feel safe enough to return to  Mass. It has always been the understanding of the Church that when the freedom of any Catholic  to attend Mass in person is impeded for a serious reason, because of situations such as ill health,  care for the sick or legitimate fear, this is not a breach of the Sunday Obligation. It is intended that  this Sunday Obligation should return from Pentecost Sunday celebrated on 5th June.  

UKRAINIAN REFUGEES IN RUGBY AREA – Sacred Heart Parish has begun to run a Coffee Morning  and other refreshments on Wednesday mornings each week at 10am to 12 noon for members of  refugee families and their hosts. We are able to offer a safe and welcoming place where people can  gather to support one another at this difficult time and support and help can be offered or ar ranged as needed. Offers of help welcome to make drinks and provide small cakes or traybakes. If  you would like to help please contact Diane on 07951177910.

PRAYER IN PREPARATION FOR PENTECOST 

Come Holy Spirit, come into my heart! Fill me with your joy, your peace, your divine power.  Come and live in me. May you, Holy Spirit be my best friend and counsellor.  Guide me so that I may never stray from God’s ways. Fill me with thoughts of peace.  Comfort me when I am sad. Strengthen me when I am tempted.  

Make me shine out with your love and be a sign for others of God’s love.  

Come Holy Spirit!
