Our Lady Mother Of The Saviour Rc Church

1st of October 2014

As we enter Autumn, our parish has been invited to join with all the other 230 or so parishes in the Roman Catholic Diocese of Westminster in an initiative led by Cardinal Vincent Nichols. It is his vision for the future and is under the banner title ‘Growing in Faith’. A summary of this future vision of the Cardinal is to maintain sound, prayerful and sustainable parishes, priests strengthened in commitment and sustained especially in their formative vocational years as well as in old age and retirement, all linked with a programme of outreach to the needy throughout the individual diocesan parishes. Of course, none of this comes without added financial burden, so in parallel a fundraising programme will be developed in support of both local and diocesan activities identified by the ‘Growing in Faith’ initiative. Our parish has always been generous in support of a number of specific projects in our sister parishes in Tanzania, as well as supporting the Children’s Cancer Clinic in Dar-es-Salaam.

On a social note, in early September we will have held our annual summer barbeque event. This was postponed from the usual June date by the uncertainty over Fr Terry Cantwell’s health. Fr Terry recovered slowly and later moved to Dublin to enter retirement from the ministry. We are pleased that he is now well enough to come back to join us for the day and it will also be a great time for many parishioners to meet our new Parish Priest, Fr Floribert, in an informal way.
