A NEW Pastoral Area Course - THE MASS: an introduction
This Year was designated by Bishop Philip as the Year of the Eucharist extending an open invitation to everyone in the Diocese to take part in spiritual renewal.
A unique opportunity for us to rekindle our love for Jesus Christ really and truly present and active in the Holy Eucharist.
The Catholic Bishops Conference has also recently agreed to ask Catholics to commit again to attending weekly Sunday Mass following two very challenging years.
All Catholics are now invited to return back to attending Mass in person from the Feast of Pentecost.
Experiencing the fullness and depth of the Holy Mass begins with understanding not just the Mass, but of worship itself?
To do so, our pastoral area will be running an online course via Zoom called "The Mass: An Introduction" this course will explore four fundamental questions: Why worship at all? Why a meal?
Why does the Mass take the form that it does? Why does the extraordinary come to us in ordinary ways?
You are all welcome to join this 4-week online course starting on June 13th 2022 on Mondays 7:30 - 8:30 pm.
The annual summer camp run by the Dominican Sisters of St Joseph and Fanning the Flame Catholic Mission will be held this year from 15-19 August,

Thursday 4th and Friday 5th August, with an afternoon preparation and training session for the

We have engaged the services of Doug Horley and his team to lead this year’s Club, but we still
need plenty of volunteers to help with all sorts of things from registration of the children on
arrival, team leaders to look after the children throughout the day, workshop leaders and
assistants for sports and crafts, refreshments to keep everyone hydrated, First Aiders, etc.

form, if you would like to help on one or both days. Volunteers must have a current DBS-check

Church’s safeguarding training as the Club will mainly be taking place on their premises at Tadley
Common (the sports will take place at St Mary’s just down the road).
