Congratulations to our first group of young people who celebrated their Confirmation on Friday evening. Please keep them in your prayers, and those who will be Confirmed over the next two weeks. Please also pray for the children receiving their First Holy Communions at this time. This weekend Carlo Acutis will be beatified in Assisi on Saturday 10th October. Carlo was born in London in 1991 and baptised in Fulham, and then his family settled in Milan. He was a young man of great faith who was devoted to the Eucharist and the Sacrament of Reconciliation. When he was diagnosed with leukaemia he offered his suffering for Pope Benedict and the sake of the Universal Church. He died in 2006  aged 15, and the Church quickly recognised his heroic virtue. Please look out for him on the internet and media. More importantly, let us ask for his intercession for our parish and all our young people in their own journeys of faith. We’re all called to be saints!

In amongst all the doom and gloom on the news at the moment it is lovely to be able to share some good news!  On Tuesday we had a lovely celebration when the newly ordained Fr David Knight returned to celebrate a mass of thanksgiving.  This weekend we have the joy of welcoming Deji Oduyemi into the full communion of the Catholic Church.  Deji, who has been preparing for this for many months, will be received and confirmed and make his first Holy Communion at the 6pm mass on Saturday.  Jenella Rego will make her first Holy Communion at the 4pm mass on Saturday.  Congratulations to Deji and Jenella and we will keep them both in our prayers.

In the parable of the wicked tenants, Jesus reflects prophetically on his own future and the coming fulfilment of his Paschal Mystery - that the stone rejected by the builders will indeed prove to be the keystone. Jesus is the cornerstone of God's building; he is the vine and his Father is the vinedresser; Jesus is the true key to life and salvation. The parable also reminds us of the precious responsibilities we all bear in caring for and protecting that which has been entrusted to us. This week, the new encyclical of Pope Francis will be published. Entitled 'Fratelli Tutti', the encyclical is a message for all brothers and sisters of good will. Among many themes, it will focus on human solidarity and the care we have for each other in the pandemic and post-pandemic world.
