The Bishops of England and Wales, mindful of the Eucharistic Pilgrimage and Congress which is due to take place in Liverpool in September this year, have decided to develop the practice of Eucharistic Adoration across the country. As a result of this initiative, our own Archdiocese of Southwark is putting together a Diocesan Adoration Lay Team in order to promote, expand and consolidate Eucharistic Adoration across the See of Southwark.
You are therefore invited to attend a Special Information Meeting at the Centre for Catholic Formation at 21 Tooting Bec Road, SW17 8BS on Saturday 3 February 2018 at 11:00 through to 12:15, with registration from 10:00. Refreshments will be served. If you would like to attend this event, please inform the parish office no later than Wednesday 24 January 2018, as numbers must be given soon after that date. Please see the posters in the porch which contain the necessary information regarding this splendid initiative.
We are most fortunate in this parish to have daily adoration before 10:00 Mass, weekly adoration and Benediction on Sundays, as well as a whole day each Advent and Lent, when we hold our Days of Penitence. It is hoped that such practices will spread across the archdiocese, so that the faithful might have greater access to the Real Presence of Christ, the Bread of Life, placed in the Monstrance upon the altar.
The Prayer for the Church in Southwark, associated with September's Eucharistic Pilgrimage & Conference, Adoremus, which takes place in Liverpool in September this year may be found HERE.
