A REFLECTION FROM POPE FRANCIS Fifteenth
Sunday of the Year: : The prayer of praise!
Matthew’s Gospel tells us that Jesus, in
facing hostility and rejection, responds by
praising God. He thanks the Father for who
he is and for his love in revealing himself “to mere children” (Matthew 11:25), to the
poor and humble of our world. Jesus’ example of praise calls us to respond as he
did at times when we feel God is absent or evil seems victorious. In praising God for
everything, even “Sister Death”, Saint Francis teaches us the importance, in all the
circumstances of our lives, of praising God who is always faithful. To read the full
reflection and find more resources at dioceseofnottingham.uk/yearofprayer

'Forest School at St Winefride's Catholic Primary’
With funding gained form Leicester City F.C. the school are setting up a Forest
School, located near the EYFS area on the school grounds. This is a very exciting
addition for the school, which will be ready for the start of the next academic
year. Mrs Donaldson & her team have already put a huge amount of work into
getting this set up & now would greatly appreciate any donations of materials, or
tools that people might be able to spare. In particular any wood, such as old palettes
or decking boards etc. Many thanks in advance for your donations!

The annual Pilgrimage of Reparation & Prayer for the Sanctity of Life to be held
in Walsingham, Sat 3rd Aug, led by Bishop David Oakley of Northampton Diocese.
In the 40 years of the Pilgrimage there has been a shocking increase in the number
of abortions throughout the UK & Ireland. At the same time there is pressure from
euthanasia supporting lobby groups to introduce assisted suicide, with high profile
personalities endorsing this. The day in Walsingham is to storm heaven in the peace
& beauty of this Shrine, remembering Our Lady’s words, “All who come here will find
help in their need”. More details are available at: www.walsingham.org.uk/event/pro-
life-pilgrimage-4/
