Each week on Sunday at 10am Fr Kevin will lead a Service with the Readings of the day, prayers and the opportunity to enter into a time of Spiritual Communion. If you have not been invited to participate in this it means we either do not have a current email address or the one we have is incorrect. If you would like to participate each Sunday Morning please email Fr Kevin at firstname.lastname@example.org and you will be included on any future invitations.

SLOUGH FOODBANK: HELPING LOCAL PEOPLE IN CRISIS
THIS IS HOW WE ARE SUPPORTING SLOUGH FOODBANK:
- Every Friday, Saturday and Sunday (2p.m. – 4p.m) tables will be set up at the entrance to the Parish Centre (beside the Presbytery). You are asked to drive in to the car park and put your carrier bags on the table. There is no need to go into the building or indeed to touch anything except your carrier bag.
- A parishioner has kindly offered to collect contributions from you home if you do not drive or if you do not wish to leave your home. Please email us on email@example.com and we can make arrangements
- I am delighted to say that our local Anglican and Baptist churches are encouraging their own parishioners to bring their contributions to our car park each week
- FOODBANK’S WISH LIST:
FOOD: Sponge puddings, tinned Fruit, tinned Meat, tinned vegetarian options, tinned vegetables, instant mash
TOILETRIES & BASIC ITEMS: toothpaste, shampoo, deodorant
We also need strong, good quality carrier bags.

For the re-dedication of England to the Virgin Mary we are encouraged to say the Angelus .
This is the re-dedication prayer
R: The Angel of the Lord declared unto Mary V: And she conceived by the Holy Spirit
As God once chose Mary to become the Mother of His Son through the message of an angel, so He chooses me this day, and invites me through the ministry of the Church or the example of another, to seek and do His Will at this moment in my life. Hail Mary full of Grace…
R: Behold the handmaid of the Lord V: Be it be done unto me according to thy Word
Mary’s response to her invitation, “let it be done to me according to your Word”, opened her heart to God’s grace and all things became possible. Let my “yes” today take away fear, as I embrace God’s Will, and like Mary “ponder these things in my heart”. Hail Mary full of Grace…
R: And the Word became flesh V: And dwelt among us
At a moment in history, Mary’s faith-filled “yes” conceived Him, first in her heart, which then led to the birth of our Saviour. Through accepting Him in my heart, enable me to recognise my role in bringing Christ to my sisters and brothers today. Hail Mary full of Grace…
R: Pray for us most holy Mother of God V: That we may be made worthy of the promises of Christ
Let us pray: O Holy Mother of God, pray for us, and assist us as we dedicate ourselves this day. Your Yes at the Annunciation brought our Saviour Jesus into the world, and you invite us to contemplate the great mystery of the Incarnation, sharing your joy in announcing that “the Word was made flesh and lived among us.” May our yes, this day, open our hearts to serve our sisters and brothers in this your Dowry, that they too may share our joy in the Good News that God walks among us. We make this prayer through Christ our Lord. Amen
