St Agnes Parish Bulletin 9th August 2020

Masses are continuing on our normal schedule and we thank those who have been coming to clean the Church seats and carpets.  We also thank those helping to facilitate the congregation in following the present health procedures.  Those attending Mass must also be complimented on how they follow the procedures – especially the one-way system to enter and exit the Church and the row-by-row Holy Communion procession.
As those attending Mass will be aware, more volunteers are needed to help out both at Masses and with the cleaning of the Church.  Those willing to assist are asked to give their names to the sacristan or to the Parish Office.

The sacristan and the parish secretary are back on duty this coming week.
Masses in the local Parishes have also begun again and most are following the schedule published on their Parish Websites.

Saturday 15 August is the Feast of the Assumption of Our Lady into Heaven.
The Mass for the Feast Day is at 1pm.

Remember in Prayer…

We are taking registrations now for the second running of our online

Summer School ‘Theology, Spirituality and Religious Experience’

…  starting on August 10, it also ran this July. 

The course consists of 10 online lectures by Fr Pat Collins C.M. given over two weeks and we were delighted to receive hugely positive comments from participants who took part in July; see just two examples below.  
 ‘your talks are refreshing me, rekindling my spirit  and renewing my enthusiasm…. Refocusing on the centrality of religious experience is vital and extremely helpful’
‘The eyes of my mind have also been enlightened, as I gained a fresh understanding, from a range of Christian and other perspectives, of the nature of genuine religious experience as well as of the inherent dangers that can lie within that approach’.
