April 17th 2021

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

It is the same power of God that raised our Lord Jesus from the dead that is present in every celebration of Holy Mass. It is through the power of Grace that we receive through the reception of the Body and Blood of the Lord that God’s love comes to perfection within us.

WE HAD A WONDERFUL TURNOUT ON EASTER SUNDAY AND SO NOW THAT THE INFECTION RATE HAS FALLEN SIGNIFICANTLY, SOCIETY IS NOW IN THE PROCESS OF EXITING LOCKDOWN AND THAT NEARLY ALL THOSE CLASSED AS VULNERABLE HAVE RECEIVED THEIR FIRST, AND IN MANY CASES, SECOND VACCINATION, IT IS TO BE HOPED THAT WE MAY COME TOGETHER IN PERSON ONCE AGAIN AS A PARISH FAMILY.

OTHER NOTICES

PLEASE PICK UP A COPY OF THE PARISH AGM REPORT BOOKLET AND A SET OF THE PARISH ACCOUNTS THAT ARE AVAILABLE AT THE BACK OF CHURCH THIS MORNING.

Thank you too, to those who have already responded with generosity to the appeal for funds that was made recently. We will be embarking shortly on work on the fabric of the Church and Vestry Hall as stage one of a three stage program of repairs identified in our last quinquennial report. Things have been difficult over this last year because of the Pandemic and the repeated lockdowns while we still had to continue to meet all the usual expenses of running our Church and buildings.

IT IS NOT TOO LATE TO MAKE A DONATION TOWARDS THE COST OF THE FORTHCOMING REPAIRS.

CHEQUES CAN BE MADE PAYABLE TO:

Saint Martin’s P. C. C. No. 1 A/c

MANY THANKS IN ADVANCE FOR YOUR CONTINUED GENEROSITY.

PLEASE don’t forget to contact me if you have any prayer requests or Mass intentions you would like me to offer at Mass or if would like someone added to our parish prayer list of the Sick or Departed.

I am also available in person during Surgery Hour on Saturday’s in Church between 10.30am - 12 noon.

Please continue to remember the following in your prayers:

Firstly:

For a joy filled keeping of Eastertide.

For a continued drop in the rate of Covid infections and in the number of hospitalised victims.

For our society and people that we may continue to work together, that we may see the gradual and permanent ending of Lockdown.

For the continued rapid dissemination of the Vaccines for Covid 19 and for all working for this end.

Those who have found themselves out of work, particularly those who have families or other dependents to support.

Those who are despairing at the future of their businesses and those that work for them.

Those who continue to live in fear of Covid and are living with anxiety and depression.

For the Government in their seeking solutions for the common good at this time.

For peace to reign within our homes and amongst one another.

For the elderly, housebound and those living in residential and nursing homes.

For our Ambulance Service and for our other Emergency Service Staff and for Milton Keynes Hospital and all who work there.

For Bishop Jonathan and all our parish clergy as they seek to continue to make present in our midst the Sacrifice of the Holy Mass, the Sacraments of Christ and offer continuing Pastoral care.

For Genesis Abbey, the Mother House of the Monastic Community of the House of Initia Nova of the Order of Saint Benedict. For it’s Abbot Michael-John Austin, the community and for those new to its life.

For the Sick:

For Amie Reed, Rhodie Howard, Paul Ward, Jean Holden, Peter White, Roger D’Elia, Norman Kent, Denis & Yvonne Simpson, David Lingham, Sandra Walduck, and Doris Weatherley.

For the Departed:

For the Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh and all who have died recently, and for all those who have died of Covid 19.

We pray too for all whose years mind falls at this time, among them Richard Gammage, Patricia Perkins and Andrew Alderman. Rest eternal grant unto them, O Lord.

And let Light Perpetual shine upon them.

May God bless you and keep you.

Father Victor
