Open House
Each Monday between 5.30pm and 7pm we have an Open House at St Augustine’s Church in Heelands.

Sunday Morning Mass at St Bede’s 
After a very helpful conversation at St Bede’s last weekend, we have decided to move the current Sunday morning Mass time to 8.30am from Sunday 11th July. This will allow greater flexibility with the Sunday Mass schedule. Thank you to the people of St Bede’s for your generosity. We will review how things have been working at Christmas.

Sunday Evening Mass at St Augustine’s 
We have gradually increased the number of our Sunday Masses as needs have required. From Sunday 4th July, we will begin to celebrate Mass again on Sunday evening at St Augustine’s at 6.30pm. This will continue to increase the opportunities to come to Mass at different times across the weekend.
Two weeks ago we began to stream Mass live at 8.30am from St Augustine’s, this will also be available to watch later in the day. To subscribe to this new channel click here.
From this weekend, this will replace the weekly recorded Mass.
First Communion 
Congratulations to seventy of our young people from St Augustine’s and Our Lady of Lourdes who will celebrate their First Communion on Saturday. This is our third attempt and they have waited patiently for over a year now! Next week it is the turn of the young people from Christ the King and St Mary’s.
Fr Paul - Good News
Thank you for all your prayers and good wishes for Fr Paul. He is still in hospital, but is much improved. He says he is getting bored, which is a good sign! Please continue to keep him in your prayers and thoughts.

 “What kind of world do we want to leave to those who come after us, to children who are now growing up?       Laudato Si Paragraph 160

Antibiotic Resistance
Medical News Today says "Antibiotic resistance is a global public health crisis" and that “By the year 2050, some researchers predict that antibiotic resistance will cause 10 million deaths every year, surpassing cancer as the leading cause of mortality worldwide.” The UN Report April 2019 says “Common diseases are becoming untreatable.”  “There is no time to wait. Unless the world acts urgently, antimicrobial resistance will have a disastrous impact within a generation.” 
There are several factors leading to this crisis:– over-prescription by doctors / lack of efficient lab tests / poor hygiene practises / use of antibiotics in farm animals.
Ways we can combat this
Check with the doctor whether the antibiotic s/he prescribes is necessary.
Eating a healthy diet, exercising and reducing stress levels will help us to stay well and avoid infections, and also help us to fight infections if we do become ill.
Factory farmed meat is a driver of antibiotic resistance. We need to change to extensive and organic methods of food production and consumption.
                                                                                                                            LAUDATO SI GROUP
