World Challenge:

Leah Herdman ( student at St. Bede's school ) is hoping to go to Nepal in July 2021 with

a group of young people from St. Bede's. World Challenge gives our young people the

opportunity to improve poverty and quality of life in third world countries.

All students need to raise over £4,000 to secure a place. To help Leah achieve her target

she and her family are holding a coffee morning after the 9.30 Mass on Sunday 23rd Feb.



Sick List:

Caring or praying for the sick and housebound is a most important mission of every parish.

The general prayer "For the Sick" at every Mass we celebrate is great but it would be more

personal to pray for the sick by name ( especially those who are very sick ). Would our

Extraordinary Ministers who take Holy Communion to the sick give names of the sick to

be included in the newsletter every weekend. Please make sure you have the consent

of the sick person.

Say a Pray for a lost Soul in Purgatory: ( and get amazing results )

"De Profundis"

Out of the depths I have cried to thee O' Lord, Lord hear my voice

Let thine ears be attentive to the voice of my supplication

If thou O' Lord were to mark my iniquities, Lord who shall endure it

For with Thee there is mercy and by reason of Thy Law I have waited on Thee, O' Lord

My soul hath relied on His word, my soul hath hoped in the Lord

From the morning watch even until night , my soul hath hoped in the Lord

Let Israel hope in the Lord, for with the Lord there is mercy, and with Him

plentiful Redemption and He will redeem Israel from all her iniquities

Eternal rest give unto them, O' Lord and let perpetual light shine upon

them may they rest in peace.





Ushaw College 2020:
