Gregory Care have planned a St Gregory’s ‘Picnic in the Park’ this Sunday (23rd June) immediately after 11.00 am mass (so approximately 12.30). There will be games, prizes, free ice cream and lots of fun. So come along with your picnic and enjoy yourself.

  • We will be meeting near the aviary in Abington Park
    (the small park) close to toilets, the cafe and bandstand.
  • Please join us if you are able, it will be a good opportunity to further develop our church community.

Gregory Care

You will find at the bottom of the page under ‘Latest News’, a link to the report of last year’s activity of Gregory Care. This represents a lot of work done by very few people, and aims to provide support to any in the parish who are disadvantaged by financial circumstances, ill health, accident or any other of life’s events.

When you read it, you will see the great breadth and scope of their work, which is not just for those of our congregation, indeed, it helps anyone of any faith or nationality. The chief source of funding comes from the parish repository, whose profits last year were shared between Gregory Care and the Hope Centre.

Each week in the Newsletter there is a notice with the telephone number of Gregory Care: if you know of anyone in need, please invite them to ring, and if, reading the report, you think of other needs, or coulod offer help yourself, please make contact using the same telephone number.

Please notice too the future events that are planned:
Table Top Sale on April 13th
Parish Lunch on Sunday 19th May (More information later)
Picnic in the Park on June 23rd (Pray for good weather!)

Evangelii Nuntiandi.

Pope Francis, in his address at the Papal Audience on Wednesday 22nd March spoke of the importance of Pope St Paul VI’s Apostolic Exhortation, Evangelii Nuntiandi. Although dating from 1975, Pope Francis speaks of its continued importance. This is, in part. because it did not receive the attention it deserved at the time, but now its time has come.

It is available as a printed book, and there are a number of web-sites offering it for sale, but it is available free on the Vatican website, and the link to it is below.

As we work towards becoming a ‘Missionary Parish’, this is useful reading for us all.

Sunday: 9.00 am and 11.00 am.
There is a Mass according to the Syro-Malabar Rite celebrated in Malayalam at 5.00 on Sunday evenings
(There is a Mass in the Cathedral on Sunday evenings at 5.15 pm)

Prayers for Ukraine:

We say this prayer every day at St Gregory’s for Ukraine, come if you can, or pray at home. This is the prayer which is said in Church at every Mass.

O God, author and lover of peace,
to know you is to live,
to serve you is to reign.
defend against every attack
those who cry to you
so that we, who trust in your protection,
may not fear the weapons of any foe.
We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ,
who lives and reigns for ever and ever.

For Weekday Mass times, see the Newsletter
