FATHER ANTHONY is most grateful for the warm welcome he has received at St Anne’s over the last few weeks.  He wishes you and your families every blessing and hopes to see you again before too long.
ALTAR BREADS  Our old supplier has stopped making altar breads so I have taken the opportunity of changing to the WHEAT ones which are a touch more bread like and a little thicker. Gluten free hosts are available if required, please see Fr Gerry.
THE 33rd ANNUAL ROSARY RALLY  takes place this year on 1st September at Mount St Bernard Abbey, Leicestershire. You are warmly invited to join in the Rally to pray for ‘World Peace and Young People’.  The Principle Celebrant is Fr Colin Patey (Retired Priest of the Nottingham Diocese) and the day will commence at 2pm with concelebrated Mass, followed by picnic and refreshments in the lovely grounds of the Monastery.  Resuming at 4pm the second part of the Rally will consist of the crowning of a statue of Our Lady, a procession with Rosary and hymns with a choir, followed by the Blessed Sacrament, blessing of the sick and concluding with Benediction. Bring a folding chair or stool.  Mount St Bernard Abbey is situated on the Oaks Road near Coalville (LE67 5UL).
NEXT SUNDAY (25th August) we have invited the Derbyshire Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) Hardyal Dhindsa to join us to unveil a plaque in the Community Centre to celebrate the £25,000 grant that we received last year from the ‘Neighbourhoods Investing in Criminal Earnings’ (Nice) Fund.  He will join us for Mass at 10.00 a.m. and will talk to us about his work and the work of NICE.  This will hopefully give us an opportunity to hear firsthand the story behind the NICE fund, and the benefits that NICE grants have brought to communities.  After Mass, we will have the presentation of the Plaque in the Community Centre where refreshments will also be served to which you are all invited.  Let’s make it a true community celebration of the work that has been achieved!
WEEK OF GUIDED PRAYER  will take place on Sunday 6th October – 12th October.  Sr Tresa and Carmel and Michael O’Malley have agreed to lead us.  Fifteen parishioners took part last year.  Ask them about it if you’re interested.
