Our Stewardship and Planned Giving Drive
I am aware that the leaflet this week is fundamentally designed for you to look at your financial giving to the upkeep and furtherance of the mission of the church here in Borehamwood but without volunteers working in all aspects of the work of the Parish we cannot thrive. We need help in many areas and, with keen awareness of your own work and family commitments, I ask you to consider carefully what service you could help with.
I am really pleased with the increase in Readers and Ministers of the Eucharist but we still need more. The forms are at the back of the church. We also need more Catechists for the First Holy Communion Programme and the Confirmation Programme. We also urgently need to get a team of people to run the Children’s Liturgy of the Word at SS John Fisher and Thomas More.
I have a great desire to offer a Religious Education Programme for the children in the Parish who are not in Catholic Schools. I would love that to start in September and if we can get a team sorted we can choose a good course and train people to deliver it. A committee to plan and oversee our Social Events would be a great help.
This wishlist could go on forever but I am acutely aware that we have no real provision for our young people after they have celebrated their Confirmation and I would welcome any suggestions and offers of help in this area. With the luxury of an Assistant Priest we can offer good adult Catechesis and are planning some very exciting opportunities from autumn onwards.
Thank you for all your enthusiasm and I pray that we will continue to grow, flourish and expand to be Christ’s presence in Borehamwood.
