Prayer to St Helen

st-helenSaint Helen,
beloved Patroness of our Parish.
You left these Celtic lands
to become the first Christian
Empress of Rome;
You were cast off by your husband,
and so are the patroness of the Divorced;
and in old age you went as a
pilgrim to the Holy Land,
and there sought out and
recovered the True Cross.
Teach us also to seek and find
the truth of the cross
in our own lives and history,
and through it, renew our faith and hope
in the resurrection of Christ,
our Saviour.

How does our church work? How do we work our church?

Last weekend we were offered an invitation and opportunity for us all to see where or how we can contribute to the continuing life and up-building of our church and faith in this parish community. Forms were handed out after Mass inviting us to tick the boxes indicating what we could do for our church. If you haven’t already done so, could you please take a couple of minutes to fill out the attached form to register your areas of interests and offers on the form? You can either email it back to us or return it in the box in the porch as you leave Mass.

This Saturday is Curry Night at St Helen’s

exhibitionOn Saturday 12th November we will be holding another Curry night. This is a great chance to prepare your favourite curry dish and share it with friends and family in the parish hall. We’re thinking of Rogan Josh, Madras, Vindaloo, Jalfreze, Korma, Tikka Masala. Or how about brining some poppadoms, chutneys, bhajis, koftas or whatever takes your fancy. And don’t worry if you’re unable to bring anything, as there will be plenty to share. Last time we held this evening we had a great turnout and had an excellent evening. We look forward to seeing you on Saturday 12th November at 7.30 pm (after Mass). Please let others know and share this on Facebook
