DIVINE MERCY SUNDAY:
Due to the current situation we are not hosting Divine Mercy Devotion as we did before. Instead of this after each Mass before the final blessing and Holy Communion we will have a short Exposition of the Blessed Sacrament and the Divine Chaplet said. There is no homily this Sunday.
WE REMEMBER IN OUR PRAYERS:
It was with deep sadness that we learnt on Friday of the death of HRH Prince Philip, The Duke of Edinburgh. His constant and steadfast sense of duty has greatly contributed to the stability that he and Her Majesty the Queen have given to this country for so many years. Amongst others, his charitable works and those with young people will leave a lasting legacy. He was greatly respected in many countries around the world with which we still share so many links. We join with Her Majesty and all the Royal Family in mourning his loss. May his soul find the eternal rest he so richly deserves.
We offer our sympathy and prayers to Fathers Krzysztof (Chris) Tomczak MS (La Salette, Rainham) and his brother Karol (Charles) Tomczak MS on the death of their Mother Ewa Tomczak RIP. May she rest in peace. The funeral Mass for Ewa Tomczak RIP is today (Friday 16th April) at 2pm. (Live streaming available -
We would like to thank for your prayers, Easter greetings, cards, gifts as well as a generous Easter collection. May the Risen Lord send His abundant blessing upon the Parish and Community of St Cedd’s. Also we would like to address words of thanks to all those that helped us to celebrate this Easter together. Special words of thanks go to our Cleaners and Stewards that made sure that our church was kept clean and sanitised after each single celebration.

GIFT AID ENVELOPES 2021/2022:
The Gift Aid scheme remains an important way of increasing your offertory collection. It is available to all UK taxpayers. You are not required to give a specific amount but, whatever you give through donations, offertory collections etc. will be increased by the Government by 25%. Last year the scheme raised over £8000 for the Parish at no extra cost to you.
If you need any help talk to the person that is distributing the Envelopes, one of the stewards or contact the Parish Office, please.
