My dear friends,
During the month of July, with the help of some of you, I completed an application to be nominated Church of the Year, receive a medal for the work undertaken and a cheque for £500. This competition is organised by NCT ( National Church Trust). We are now on a short list and an architect from NCT is coming next Wednesday to judge us against other churches.
Success would give us *excellent publicity* for further public funding.
Success will put our church and our community on the map: *evangelisation.*
Success will promote the North of England and the Catholic Church, which are not always well represented.
*I need your help!*
Can you :
Pray for this intention?
**Come to church on Wednesday morning 23rd August around 10am** and show your enthusiasm for St Walburge’s? Perhaps bring your children and family?
Thank you so much!
God bless you!
Rector of the Shrine
