PARISH PRAYER FOR THE WEEK:  We pray for the people of Sudan, as they face conflict and hunger: that through God’s grace and our actions they may know peace and receive the practical support that they need.    Lord, in your mercy……  (CAFODweekly prayers of intercession)

THE POPE’S INTENTION FOR APRIL: For the role of women

We pray that the dignity and immense value of women be recognised in every culture,   And for the end of discrimination that they experience in different parts of the world.


We welcome Fr. Geoff Bottoms to celebrate our Mass this Sunday.

RIP TEDDY KELLY: Teddy passed away at home on Tuesday at 12.25.  He was surrounded with love and it was very peaceful. Sue said “Richard and Katie held him in their arms and cuddled him as he left us.  We were very privileged as a family to be there with him”

Our thoughts and prayers are with the family at this very difficult time.

RIP MAUREEN APPLEY:  The Cremation service for Maureen Appley,  who died last week, is on May 7th at Rotherham Crematorium.   We continue  pray for Helen  and the family at this sad time.

RIP PAUL CUMMINS: The funeral for Paul Cummins, who died 13th April, will be on Tuesday 30th April at 1pm at Barnby Moor Crematorium, Retford followed by a small gathering at the Saxon Hotel, Kiveton Park.  Family flowers only, donations to Chamwood Residential Care Home where Paul happily lived since last December. We continue to keep Julie, Sarah and the family in our thoughts and prayers.

RETIRING COLLECTIONS:  There will be retring collections after Masses this  weekend for the Preists training Fund and after Masses on weekend of 4th and 5th May for CAFOD Emergency Appeal for Sudan (See below)


The people of Sudan need our help urgently. CAFOD are launching an emergency appeal for donations to get aid to them on the biggest scale we can muster.

When violence broke out last year in Sudan between government and paramilitaries, most aid agencies evacuated. Now, humanitarian workers are struggling to get back into Sudan to help, meaning severe delays in getting aid to the people, and the challenges of getting into areas where fighting is still going on remain.  Many borders are shut as the government say they need to keep weapons out.

But the Church and our local partners are still there. Please, stand with them today.

The situation has gone from serious to desperate very quickly. The UN is calling it ‘the world’s worst displacement crisis’. At least 8 million people have had to flee their homes; famine looms.

 “At least 25 million Sudanese need immediate, emergency help. Families are already going hungry and famine is looming. This crisis threatens to become the worst in living memory.”             (Telley Sadia, CAFOD’s country representative for Sudan)


Let us, as Cardinal Nichols and Bishop Swarbrick wrote recently to Cardinal Stephen Ameyu Martin Mulla, Archbishop of Juba and president of the Sudanese Bishops’ Conference,

‘extend to you the prayerful support of the Church in England and Wales and… express our solidarity with you in your current circumstances of profound distress. We have heard your cry in your recent statement, in which you reminded the international community of the need for support to bring about an end to the civil conflict and allow for immediate humanitarian access to alleviate hunger across Sudan.’

Our Caritas and Church networks are there when many aid agencies aren’t, where people are in a desperate situation. The Church in Sudan is already responding and asking us to help them do more. Even in this year of economic stretch for many people here, we know that the Catholic community will want to respond with compassion to help people facing famine.

 Despite this overwhelming scale, you will have seen how media attention is limited. We are calling on the Catholic community of England and Wales to give the people of Sudan our attention, and our hearts.

CAMINO: On Sunday 28th April a member of the congregation of Wales Methodist Church is giving a talk about his experience of a Camino (a journey) from Valencia in Portugal to Santiago de Compostella in Spain last September. This will take place at Wales Kiveton Methodist Church at 3pm.  All welcome.
