PROCLAIM '15: This is a new initiative launched by the Catholic Bishops' Conference
of England and Wales, to support, enthuse and equip evangelisation in parishes. It has
been inspired by the Holy Father's Apostolic Exhortation: Evangelii Gaudium, to bring
about evangelisation in the present and into the future. Proclaim '15 is a five-part
programme, which includes the provision of free parish small group materials and the
opportunity to participate in the organisation of the Catholic Evangelisation Conference,
due to take place, in Birmingham, on 11th July 2015, for 850 attendees gathering from
every diocese; an invitation to join in prayer with parishes across England and Wales.
This will involve a Prayer Vigil on the night of 11th July. It is envisaged that parishes can
organise this programme, themselves, in the autumn. Please do get involved in what
will be a significant step, in the service of proclaiming the Gospel.
WISELESS MICROPHONE SYSTEM: Our church has just reset this system and we
hope that we will have no more 'crackling noises' in the church. Thank you very much
for your patience during the past.
ST. ELIZABETH'S TEACHER VACANCIES: St. Elizabeth's Catholic Primary School
has vacancies for 3 teachers. Please contact Tony Golding, Resource and Finance
Manager on 024 76687527. For more details please see the advertisement in the notice

DIVINE MERCY PILGRIMAGE & VISIT ST. J. P II'S BIRTHPLACE IN POLAND:
Poland is home country of St. John Paul II and is rich in culture and historical heritage
and, above all, it is known for its Christian culture and tradition. It was here that the
Message of God's Divine Mercy was revealed to Sister Faustina Kowalska and that
message spread throughout the world thereafter. To get a deep understanding of the
background of this message, the place where the message was revealed is worth
visiting. There will be two chaplains from London and Birmingham, who will be jointly
organising this trip with Fr. Louis.
- The dates for this pilgrimage: 8th - 13th April 2015.
- Total Cost: £655 includes flight return tickets, 4-star hotel, meals, coach travel,
professional guides, tickets to all museums and personal insurance.
- Registration time: from 18/1 to 22/2/2015.
* Please confirm with Fr. Louis as soon as possible on 07758942747 / 02476466834 if
you want to join this pilgrimage. For more information, please see the advertisement on
the notice porch.
DIOCESAN PILGRIMAGE TO LOURDES: The time for this pilgrimage is from 23 to 30
May 2015. Please put it in your diary if you want to join. For more information we will
infirm you late. Thank you.
"Unlike the scribes, he taught them with authority."
(Mk. 1:22).
Dear parishioners, today’s readings mentions the role of prophets, who never speak
on their own authority but on behalf of God. Moses was called by God as the 1 st
prophet and the Jews believed that God would raise up in the last days a prophet like
Moses. The early Christians regarded Jesus as the awaited prophet. His teaching
was given with authority and confirmed by miracles. In today’s gospel we see how
Jesus spoke with authority and how the ordinary people recognised this. As
Christians, we are called to live out the role of a prophet by doing what God has
called us to do and to be God's mouth-piece. Let us reflect on our Christian role and
we should ask ourselves: What are we doing so that we may be a Jesus' prophet?
