If you are interested in becoming a youth leader a course will be held at the Briars in Crich, Derbyshire on Saturday 8th October from 1pm to 5pm by the Outreach Youth Ministry of the Nottingham Diocese Catholic Youth Service. Dear Father, My name is Peter Vickers and I am the Outreach Youth Ministry Co-ordinator for Nottingham Diocesan Catholic Youth Service. Due to the generosity of the Diocese I have recently been granted the opportunity to commit to outreach youth ministry on a full time basis. I am writing to you today to inform you of the desire of the Youth Service to better serve the parishes of our diocese. In this Holy Year of Mercy we are committed to becoming Pope Francis’ “Missionaries of Mercy” and seek to “allow the Gospel to touch the hearts of all people”. May I take this opportunity to thank you for your continued support of the Youth Service for which all of us here at the Briars are extremely grateful. I look forward to working with you in the near future. Yours sincerely Peter Vickers.
CONFIRMATION CLASSES We are hoping to be able to celebrate the sacrament of confirmation next year by God’s grace. Because of the modalities in getting the bishop to come and the preparing classes themselves, we are asking those wishing to be confirmed to please get the forms and supply all the information required by the end of August. This will help in the planning and the start of the course in October 2016 on time. Be wise as serpents and innocent as doves. Mathew 10:16
Fr Jacques HamelIn In view of the recent happenings( ie religious extremisms), and especially with the brutal killing of Fr Jacques Hamel during the celebration of the Holy Eucharist, we are calling on everyone to be extremely watchful. Please do report any suspicious activities . we are reviewing our safeguarding procedures while we await further recommendation from the diocese especially concerning the Blessed sacrament adoration. We are, however, not oblivious of God protection on all of us, but we must take to heart Jesus’s injunction, “Behold, I am sending you out as sheep in the mist of wolves, so be wise as serpents and innocent as doves”
