Progress

The Parish Council will be meeting today- one of our bimonthly meetings to look ahead and make sure we are making progress in the areas we wanted to grow….

First Holy Commonion

It is fantastic each year to celebrate the “Source and Summit” of our life as Catholic’s – the Eucharist. Five children this year will celebrate their deepest encounter with Christ. As a community it is good that we come together with them to celebrate and mark the occasion. To that end – a new initiative. After mass on Sunday there will be a little “Garden Party” with something to eat, something to drink and lots of things for the children to do – do celebrate with us – the sacred and the familial…

Action:

  • Come along and celebrate with us
  • Pray for all children receiveing their First Holy Communion

Live broadcast.

This year we started streaming the mass on Friday (for the sick) and on Sunday on Youtbue. This found a lot of resonance – especially with those restricted to their homes due to age or health – but also with some who were on holiday and could not get to a Church. We were simply broadcasting from a phone at this point. Unfortunately, YouTube changed their user policies and we can no longer stream live directly from a phone until we have 1000 subscribers – so we are going to have to adapt.

Am hoping for the gift of a computer in the coming weeks – but there will be a need to purchase some equipment – we can stream through a browser or browsing program….

Will keep you up to date ast to where we are going with this…

Action:

  • Could you sponsor some of the equipment we need.
  • Am looking for people to operate the equipment on a Sunday….

Fish and Chip Friday

There are a number of events coming up from our Social and Fundraising Team. The first of which is our Fish and Chip Fridays. We are going to go one step further this year and we will be having entertainment after the meal – the first week – Bingo…..

Action:

  • Look out for the tickets on sale shortly….
  • We are looking for sponsors so we can keep the price down….

There is lots more ongoing and coming up. Will be trying to blog every two weeks – you can find info on our website www.stvincentsbolton.org – follow us on Facebook – and look out for our “Live at Five” program every other week….A
