Next Sunday there will be a collection at both parishes for the Day of Life . The theme this year is  Care of the Elderly   

Across: We are looking for helpers and nurses to travel to Lourdes to help make  “the impossible possible” for our wonderful VIPs. We have various pilgrimage dates  available and have subsidies available for nurses and young helpers (aged 16-25 in full  time education). Please call the office on 020 3542 1800 for more information. 

LIVESTREAM : We are suspending the livestream of the Saturday evening Mass at SH.  

We will be continuing the Livestream from EM at 11 am on Sunday . For the present we are livestreaming the  weekday Masses from SH at the published times. It is good to see that so many of the parishioners from both par ishes are confident enough to attend Mass in person.

Opening hymn at Sacred Heart : Song of the Trinity by Mike Stanley  

Father I know that your love for me knows no bounds.  

When darkness has fallen your voice from the heavens resounds.  

Saying trust and believe come and walk on my road to its end.  

Take me home Father, Spirit and Son, my Master and friend.  

Spirit, I know that your truth is spoken each day.  

But power and greed change the creed, leaving truth to decay.  

So let the heavens resound with Hosanna to you, Holy One.  

For in you Father, Spirit and Son the battle is won.  

Jesus, I know that your love for me has no end.  

My faith growing stronger each day that on you I depend.  

When my doubting subsides when I’m finally brought to my knees;  

Through my prayer, Father, Spirit and Son your grace is revealed
