Music for the Sixth Sunday of Easter

Vidi Aquam
Mass setting: Missa Secunda – Hans Leo Hassler
Adoremus in aeternum - Gregorio Allegri

There will be a Retiring Collection again today in aid of Christian Aid.  Please be generous.

PCC meets on Wednesday this week, starting with mass at 7.30 p.m.

Thy Kingdom Come:  The Archbishops of Canterbury and York have once again called for a novena of prayer from Ascension Day (25 May) to Pentecost (4 June), with a special intention for the conversion of England.  There are events at St Paul’s Cathedral on 29 May and 3 June – see the posters in the narthex for details.  There is also a Sung Mass at 7.00 p.m. on 25 May at St Andrew’s Holborn, celebrated by the Bishop of Fulham, followed by a vigil of prayer until midnight.  We will be hosting our own prayer event on Wednesday 31 May from 7.30 p.m. to 8.30 p.m.

Summer Fair:  The Summer Fair takes place on 10 June from 11.00 a.m. to 2.00 p.m.  There are now boxes in the hall for the collection of goods for the Fair.  Please start to bring bottles (for the Bottle Stall) and tombola prizes, as well as the usual items for the stalls.  In addition, Winkworth Estate Agents will not now be sponsoring the raffle as there were only three names on the list for advertising boards. If anyone cares to provide raffle prizes we will be most grateful.

Walsingham 2018:  Please sign your name on the list in the Hall if you would like to go on the Weekend Parish Pilgrimage to Walsingham in October 2018 and let Sue Windridge have a deposit (£10 per person) – this will be the third weekend in October (19th to 21st).   

Alan Toms has changed his printer at home and has a number of HP 364 XL ink cartridges left that would suit anybody with HP Printer.  Please speak to Alan if you  could make use of the cartridges.

There are some
'Insider' newsletters available in the hall. These are published by Barnet Seniors Assembly every two months and are normally available from the Library which, as people will be aware, is currently being refurbished.

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
