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.

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.

"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? CHILDREN'S LITURGY THIS SUNDAY.
