The Lent Course is now finished but the notes for each session may be read, and printed if so desired, from the PDFs that may be found further down this page.
Fr Patrick has produced a Questionnaire, and asks that it might be completed by those who have attended all or most of the six evenings of the Lent Course. The form may be printed from the Word file that follows, completed by hand, and addressed to Fr Patrick at the presbytery (address on the form). Alternatively, the Word file may be typed into, saved on your own machine, and attached to an e-mail addressed to email@example.com
Lent Course notes:
Fr Patrick’s induction as parish priest of the Parish of Our Lady and St Anne took place on the Feast of the Presentation of the Lord (Candlemas) , 2nd February 2018. The Rite of Induction was presided over by the Dean of South Oxford, the Reverend Paul Fitzpatrick. Fr Patrick was the main celebrant at Mass, and preached the homily.
Fr Patrick was parish priest of the parish of Saint Peter & Saint Paul, Wolverhampton, from 1999 to 2013, and a large group from this parish was present at the induction ceremony and Mass, and at a celebration in the Cenacle afterwards. The chasuble that Fr Patrick is wearing in the picture above, and which he wore for the Eucharistic liturgy, was given to him by the parishioners of Saint Peter & St Paul for his Silver Jubilee. A selection of photos from the evening can be seen below and Fr Patrick’s message, contained within the order of service, can be read here: Fr Patrick’s induction message.
At the 10.00am Mass on Sunday 21st January, Fr Paul Martin was presented with the parish gift of a cheque by Damian Colehan as Chair of the Parish Finance Committee. Damian spoke of the contribution to the life of the parish that Fr Paul had made over the four years as our parish priest and, on behalf of the parish, gave thanks for that. Fr Paul expressed his gratitude for the gift, and assured us that he was very happily setting into his new life as Director of the St Barnabas Society. During the Mass, Fr Paul had preached a fascinating and uplifting homily which can be found at the end of this item or in the Gallery section of the website: Fr Paul Martin’s Homily 21Jan18
