This Friday is the Feast of the Annunciation and Pope Francis has asked us to set aside times of Adoration between Midday on Friday and Midday on Saturday as a global act of conversion to the Lord. He also will be consecrating Ukraine and Russia to the Immaculate Heart to Mary to claim all hearts there for peace. In our parish we are setting aside two 3 hour periods of Adoration: 3 hours at SS Peter & Paul on Friday afternoon and 3 hours at St Michael’s on Saturday Morning. (We are including the hour of Adoration on Thursday at St Bernadette’s in this intention.) There will be sign up sheets in St Michael’s and SS Peter & Paul this weekend so that there will be continuous prayer before the Blessed Sacrament. Please consider offering half an hour of prayer for peace during this extended vigil.

The bishops of England and Wales have issued a new set of guidelines for Lent and Easter. The good news is that things are more or less back to normal, with certain simple measures still in place. It does mean we are able to return to a full celebration of the Easter Triduum. Click here to download the full statement.
You may not be aware, but we have a Ukrainian Catholic Church here in Wolverhampton where there is Mass once a fortnight. Opposite the church is the Ukrainian Centre at 35 Merridale Street West. They are collecting Medical Equipment (but no medicines) and clothing to support those who are suffering. If you are able to help out with any medical equipment or clothing, please ring Andrew Duda on 07801 950588 and he will be able to arrange to meet you at the centre.
