Paul Samuels, who has been the parish Steward of the Gospel for sometime now, is joined by Clare D’Netto who will help with the Parish Group strategy, for the diocesan plan for Renewal and Re-Development. We welcome her to this important ministry and hope you will pray for her and the diocesan plan.
Our parishioners were involved in a live Crib/Nativity Drama today (22nd December, 2018) and if you missed the live stream of the event you can view the recording here: https://www.churchservices.tv/ilford/archive/uploads/7LDdwxre1Y
Our Stewards of the Gospel programme is beginning to take shape so keep an eye out for events and announcements. We will be inaugurating the Parish Council later in the year and our Youth Ministry is gaining momentum with a youth team of three adults who will be working with our young people before and after Confirmation. Please pray for these initiatives that they may bear fruit for the ‘New Evangelisation’ within our diocese.
On the First Sunday of Advent, the Bene Merenti medal and certificate were presented to Suzanne Riley for her tireless commitment to the parish as an Organist, Extraordinary Minister of the Eucharist, Catechist and Teacher. As always, in receiving this award she was entirely self effacing.
The certificate reads:
Francis, Supreme Pontiff,
making use of his power to honour by this mark of distinction
has seen fit to give and bestow a medal for excellence
established for whoever is exceedingly well deserving in Christian matters
on Suzanne Riley.
From the Vatican 18th August 2016
