Music for 16th Sunday in Ordinary Time

Mass Setting:
Missa Secunda - Hassler

The Call – Ralph Vaughan Williams

Many thanks to our Social Committee for organising the Picnic last Sunday.  We had fine weather and a good time was had by all!

Sunday Schools: Sunday Club and Early Church have now started their summer break and will re-commence on 10 September.  Many thanks to the children who have worked so hard on the artwork illustrating the life of Moses – now complete with the 10 Commandments!

Calendar for July to December 2017:  Please take a copy of the calendar covering the rest of the year so that you know what is going on and when!

For those booked on the
2017 Walsingham Weekend Pilgrimage (13 to 15 October), could you now complete a booking form and give this, with a £20 deposit, to Sue Windridge.  If paying by cheque, please make it payable to WCTA Limited.

Lance Haward is selling copies of “Die on the Carpet!” – a half-century of dusty reminiscence of St Augustine’s Highgate.  Copies are £10 each for the technicolour edition and there is a list in the Hall (and a sample copy) for you to jot down your order.  All proceeds will go towards his second church's boiler fund appeal.

French Circle Weekend – 31 August to 4 September:  The French Circle Trip this September will be to Beaune in Burgundy. The trip is open to everyone – you just need to make your own way there and book your hotel (Fr Christopher can advise re the latter).  There will be opportunities over the weekend for wine tastings, a visit to Dijon and to have some meals together.   Please advise as soon as possible if you are interested so that the necessary arrangements/bookings can be made.

The Arts Festival this year is being sponsored by Tatlers. If you are willing to have a board outside your house advertising both them and the Festival, could you please speak to Nick Starling or Ali McKee.  It would be for a couple of weeks (end of September/beginning of October).

:  One member of the congregation has been subject to a scam recently so it is timely to remind everyone that you should never give out your bank account or credit card details unless you are certain of who you are dealing with. If you have a call from your bank or a similar organisation you should call them back but from another phone, such as a mobile phone or landline, or wait at least five minutes before doing so.  Also, use a telephone number you know to be that of your bank or credit card company.

Food Bank:  A reminder that the East Finchley Food Bank is still in need of donations of tinned and packaged goods, toiletries and household cleaning items.  Please check “Best before” dates for your donations as the Food Bank cannot accept any out-of-date items.  Also, the Food Bank cannot accept any part-used items.

The Companions of the Shrine of Our Lady of Willesden: Is anyone interested in becoming a Companion of the Shrine of Our Lady of Willesden?  There are leaflets in the Hall giving details – the minimum annual donation is £10.   Also see the website (   


For here we have no abiding city, but we seek the city which is to come.    
Through him then let us continually offer up a sacrifice of praise to God, that is, the fruit of lips that acknowledge his name.   
Do not neglect to do good and to share what you have,
for such sacrifices are pleasing to God.

Hebrews 13:14-16

Give your bread to those who are hungry, and your clothes to those who lack clothing.  Of whatever you own in plenty, devote a proportion to almsgiving; and when you give alms, do it ungrudgingly.

Tobit 4:16

When someone is given a great deal, a great deal will be demanded of that person; when someone is entrusted with a great deal, of that person even more will be expected.

Luke 12:48


Of your charity,
please pray for the recently departed, and for those whose names are inscribed on the Chantry List of this parish and whose year’s mind falls at this time: Eva Howell, Ernest Allso, Emily Cuss, Leslie Sydney Trickitt, Charles Keith, Lucy Mary Northridge, Ruby Kamalananthan, Sheila Plowright, John Thomas Morrow, and Nancy Veitch.
