Lourdes in your Living
Room – hundreds of
people from across the Diocese watched and prayed at Masses and liturgies last
week, and enjoyed the social content too. Everything is on www.youtube.com/c/brentwoodcys, in case you missed it. Thank
you for great generosity as over £4500 was raised by the “18 hour
challenge” to be split between the BCYS, and CAFOD’s coronavirus appeal,
“Summer of Hope”.

Homily for the 17th Sunday in Ordinary Time 2020
25th Jul 2020
Please see below for a link to Father Matthias' Homily for the 17th Sunday of Ordinary Time
New Dawn in the Church is a Catholic Family Pilgrimage Conference that takes place at the Catholic National Shrine of Our Lady of Walsingham, attracting up to 2,500 pilgrims each year! We invite you to join us this year for a virtual conference, Friday 31st July to Sunday 2nd August. In a special way, this year's conference is dedicated to the Eternal Father and will be streamed live from Walsingham in collaboration with the Shrine! We have an inspirational line-up of speakers who will unpack the theme using the Parable of the Prodigal Son. To watch the conference/full programme details go to www.newdawn.org.uk (no registration or fee required).
I am very pleased to attach the handbook for the “Lourdes in your Living Room” online
pilgrimage, now just 10 days away.
You will see that it is a full pilgrimage week, hopefully
with many prayerful and joyful opportunities for people of all ages.
Please do keep the whole venture in prayer – and if you spot
any errors, or have any questions, please do not hesitate to get in touch;
better that we can sort any problems out in the next ten days, rather than when
we are livestreaming!
With many thanks, and many blessings
Fr Dominic and the whole BCYS “Lourdes in your Living Room”
hope this will be a lovely moment for Year 6s, perhaps together with parents
and grandparents, to mark many precious memories from primary school, and the
transition to secondary school. The theme for the Mass is from Ephesians 2:10,
“You are God’s work of art.”
