An event for Readers and Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion
Following the very successful retreat for Readers and Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion held last November, Bishop Pat has arranged for Father Victor Darlington to host a similar day at Sacred Heart Catholic School, Camberwell New Road, London SE5 0RP on Saturday 14 March 2020.
Father Victor is a renowned scripture professor and teaches at St. John’s Seminary in Wonersh. His area of expertise is the writings of St. John.
In the first presentation he will speak about “The Journey Towards Faith in the Gospel of John”, reflecting especially on the Gospels for the 3rd, 4th and 5th Sundays of Lent.
In the afternoon session he will speak on the theme “Called to be a Community of Life” drawing especially from the 7 “I am” statements in John’s Gospels, which are used in the readings on the Sundays and weekdays of Easter.
All Readers and Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion are welcome to attend. Please contact the Parish Office if you would like to go along.

As close to St Patrick’s Day as we could get! There will be a traditional Bacon & Cabbage dinner. We shall be having a licensed bar. Irish Coffees will be available at the bar. Music will be provided by Trixon Sound, and there will be dancing too!
A few people have been working very hard in the background to make this event happen. Please do give the occasion your support.
Doors at St. Bart's will be open from 19:00 with dinner at 19:30.
Entry will be by ticket only at just £20.00, with tickets now available from the Parish Office.

The Bishops’ Conference of England and Wales has designated 2020 as a Year in celebration of "The God who Speaks", inviting the Church in England and Wales to listen afresh to the Word of God, as did Our Blessed Lady at the Annunciation, to encounter anew the presence of that Word, and to proclaim it afresh in the Church and the World.

The holy celebration of Christmas invites us to remember what really matters in life. At the centre of Christmas is the birth of a child, the Son of God, defenceless and vulnerable. This new-born is totally dependent on those around him to provide love, food and shelter.
We share the responsibility of providing for each other, especially for our weaker brothers and sisters.
A big thank you for all your support this year with the Crisis appeals.
The 44 shoe boxes were fantastic! Today your generosity has been exceptional. We have raised £460 from the raffle and coffee morning. This money has helped house 22 people over the Christmas period and also can help get them get a chance to work towards ending their homelessness by advice and training.
Your support for the projects that Bart Seniors embark on is amazing. We would like to wish you all a lovely Christmas and a healthy and happy New Year.
