REFRESHMENTS AFTER SUNDAY MASS AT SACRED HEART— after a long period during Covid when we  couldn’t meet after Mass we have now resumed. Two or three families have been providing coffee etc on  an ad hoc basis and we are very grateful to them. They would like to increase their numbers and revert  to a rota system. It would be great if we could find a few families who would be willing to help perhaps  once every six or seven weeks. It is a great opportunity to meet other parishioners for a chat and the  children love to play together. If you are interested please put your name on the list in the narthex.  Thank you.

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

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.

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!

English Martyrs First Holy Communion will be celebrated on Saturday 11th June at 11am.  RETURNNG TO MASS FROM PENTECOST—MESSAGE FROM THE BISHOPS CONFERENCE  

Since the beginning of the Covid pandemic, until the present time, we have shared with you our  judgment that the situation of the last two years has meant that the Sunday Obligation has been  impeded and has needed to be fulfilled in other ways. We thank God that this situation has now  changed. The pressing challenges of the pandemic have lessened significantly. Most people have  resumed the wide range of normal activities, no longer restricted by the previous Covid measures.  

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 

Hosts in the Rugby area have been welcoming refugee families into their homes. Sacred Heart  hosted the first of our coffee mornings last Wednesday. We welcomed nine Ukrainian families and  it went well. Thank you to the team who helped prepare refreshments. Our Parish has agreed to  run a Coffee Morning and other refreshments on Wednesday mornings each week at 10am to 12  noon . 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 arranged 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.  

Fr Hudson’s Care on behalf of the diocese are working hard to coordinate and help to support  efforts being made in various parts of the diocese. They have much expertise in working with  refugees and asylum seekers over many years. They are receiving many requests of support  through St Chad’s Sanctuary in Birmingham. They need vital funds to expand and develop the  support which is vitally needed. Thank you for your Support. Any cheques to Fr Hudsons. CAR PARKING AT ENGLISH MARTYRS WEEKEND MASS TIMES : We have been asked us to move  from our usual parking place in the Playground which will be marked for games use . We have  been offered the use of the School Car Park . There are a similar number of places but we will need  to park sensitively and carefully with regard to other users so the capacity can be used. This will  begin from next weekend. We thank the School for the use of this facility.

Since the beginning of the Covid pandemic, until the present time, we have shared with you our  judgment that the situation of the last two years has meant that the Sunday Obligation has been  impeded and has needed to be fulfilled in other ways. We thank God that this situation has now  changed. The pressing challenges of the pandemic have lessened significantly. Most people have  resumed the wide range of normal activities, no longer restricted by the previous Covid measures.  

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 mem bers 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 

Hosts in the Rugby area have been welcoming refugee families into their homes. Sacred Heart Par ish have agreed to run a Coffee Morning and other refreshments on Wednesday mornings begin ning on the 18th May at 10am to 12 noon. 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 arranged as needed. Offers of help welcome to make drinks and provide cakes. If you would like  to help please contact Diane on 7951177910.  

Fr Hudson’s Care on behalf of the diocese are working hard to coordinate and help to support  efforts being made in various parts of the diocese. They have much expertise in working with refugees and asylum seekers over many years. They are receiving many requests of support through St  Chad’s Sanctuary in Birmingham. The second Collection will provide vital funds to expand and develop the support which is vitally needed. Please support the Second/ Retiring Collection today.  Any cheques to Fr Hudsons. 

DAY OF PRAYER FOR THE VICTIMS AND SURVIVORS OF ABUSE on Tuesday 17th May. Pope Francis has asked us to remember this intention specially in our prayers on this day.
