Holy Communion for the sick and housebound
The letter of St James, Chapter 5, verse 14: “Is any among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord.”
If you or anyone you know is ill, either in hospital or at home, and would like to receive the Church’s ministry in anointing and Holy Communion, please let Fr Nigel know and he will come and visit you/your family and friends

At Sacred Heart there are two boxes at the back of the Church. One is for food items (in cans and packets only please) for the food bank at Trinity Methodist Church, Goole (which is in urgent need of constant replenishing). The other box is for woolly hats for the apostleship of the sea to give to those who work at sea. Many thanks to parishioners in Goole who very kindly knitted the most recent donations. Patterns for hats are available at the back of the church.


We have some wonderful news for you. Our target of £25,000 has been reached. Now £25,152.90) It is all thanks to your generous support by way of your donations of money, giving time to bake on coffee mornings, buying the Roof’us slates, doing the weekly Numbers Up game buying tickets for and donating prizes to the raffles. Special thanks to the fund-raising team for all their hard work, effort and enthusiasm.
We still, of course, need you to continue in this way, as in addition to what we previously intended doing, we have had to add extensive floor repairs, stone work and stain glass window refurbishment, full decorating throughout, improving disabled access, the WC and new kitchen facilities, new heating system… Yes, it does seem like an endless task, but it is a very worthwhile cause and our duty to restore and maintain such a beautiful church building for future generations to come.
We also have to prove to the grant awarding bodies, as well as to the Diocese, that we are active parishioners and care enough to raise our share of the upkeep costs.
So today we need to give ourselves a well-deserved pat on the back to have reached this first milestone, then, we need to step forward together again in support of this worthy cause.
Thank you all again and God bless you all.

If anyone wishes to make a cheque donation towards our refurbishment please make it payable to: The Sacred Heart Refurbishment Fund. Thank you.

Please bring in your Mission Boxes to be emptied. Thank you. Eileen.

CLEANING TEAM C for Howden this week.

A WONDERFUL EVENING OF ENTERTAINMENT by seriously talented local singers and musicians will take place in our Sacred Heart Church on Saturday 8th September. These friends have offered, or more truthfully have been cajoled into giving up their time to not only entertain us but to help raise funds for our ongoing church Refurbishment.
 All we need now is YOU, to bring your family and friends and come along to show your appreciation but at the same time have a fabulous night. 
The music will include lots of popular songs from the 60's, 70's and 80's right through to today and the evening will end up in a singalong with audience participation. 
Tickets bought in advance will cost £5 or £6 on the door. Included in that price will be a glass of wine / light refreshments. More information will come out on posters soon, so for now please SAVE THE DATE, spread the word and help make this a great parish and community event. Thank you, Susannah & the fund raising team. SACRED HEART BAKING SALE
Our next Coffee and Baking will be Sunday 5th August.

Sacred Heart church would love more people to volunteer to count the money after Mass. The counters are on a rota basis, and it would be once a month, or less if there were lots of volunteers. Please contact Sylvia on sylvbayliss@btinternet.comif you can help. Thank you.
