Back to Church Sunday – Sunday 17 September:  As last year, we will be holding a ‘Back to Church Sunday’ on 17 September.  Please make a note of this in your diaries and make a special point of being there, and of inviting a friend and/or family member.

:  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  Please check “Best before” dates for your donations as the Food Bank cannot accept any out-of-date items.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 (   

“Acquire the habit of speaking to God as if you were alone with Him, familiarly and with confidence and love, as to the dearest and most loving of friends.”

St Alphonsus Liguori
Feast Day:  1st August


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
