Sacred Heart Church Newhaven

  with Rodmell and Denton

Dear Friends,


Welcome to our Roman Catholic Church of The Sacred Heart in Newhaven, the Parish of Newhaven with Rodmell and Denton.

Dear Brothers & Sisters in Christ


Jesus’ baptism was the beginning of his mission among us. We link ourselves to his mission now as we pray.
We praise you, O God, revealed to us as Trinity in the Baptism of your Son. We say together our Trinity prayer of praise, Glory be!


Your Brother in Christ,
Ian
Teas & Coffees are available after Mass every 2nd Sunday – come and join us!

IF YOU ARE NEW TO OUR PARISH COMMUNITY:
Registration Forms are available in the entrance lobby of the church. Please take one and fill it in;  please introduce yourself to Fr. Ian.



MASS INTENTION ENVELOPES:
can be found in the porch of the Church – please use these envelopes only for requests for Masses and ensure all details are clearly written and contact details added before giving them to Fr. Ian.  Gift Aid envelopes can be used inside Mass Request envelopes.


GIFT AID:
If you pay tax join Gift Aid, as all your donations and Mass offerings will be worth 25p in the pound more to the Parish.  There is just one form to complete and no enquiry is made of your finances.  For every £10 in tax paid donations, the taxman will add another £2.50 under Gift Aid.  Gift Aid envelopes can be used inside Mass Intention envelopes and donations can be increased by 25%.  For further details, please speak to Halden or any committee member.


REPOSITORY:
Seasonal greetings cards and other items, worship aids and gifts are now on sale in the lobby of the church at very reasonable prices. The small amount of profit made goes into the parish funds.  Just choose what you like and put the money in the Repository slot  in the lobby wall safe at the back of the Church, or give it to either Fr. Ian, or Ian Farrow on a Sunday morning.


RED MISSION BOXES:
Please return these to church as soon as possible for emptying (annual collection). Thank you for the generous response to the Missio Appeal. We now have a much increased number of boxes. Would new box holders please ensure their box is labelled with their name and address so they can be returned. Thank you


CHURCH CLEANING: 
I am sure you will all have appreciated the beautiful condition of the Church.  The Cleaning team urgently needs volunteers as they are now too few on the ground. If you are able to assist, please give your name to Father or to Tina or Val. Sufficient volunteers would mean about 4 to 6 weeks between duties.   

PRAYER BOARD:
a new prayer board has been added to the porch.  All are welcome to add a prayer to this and it will be presented to the altar.  (Please remember to remove prayers once they have been answered to keep it fresh). 

USED SPECTACLES
You may remember Fr David Cullen came to talk to us last year about his work in Zambia.  There is a box just inside the door of the porch for used spectacles that can be sent directly to him.  Please see Ann-Marie if you would like an update on his work.  Many thanks.

FOOD BANK:
A collection for the local food bank in Newhaven. Please donate any non perishable items in the box in the porch (on a table opposite prayer/hymn book cabinet).

THE BREAKOUT CENTRE: 
The Breakout Centre is seeking volunteers to work in their Charity Shop in Newhaven Square. Please see details on poster in the outer porch. They will be delighted to see you. This is a vital project to generate some income for the financial support of the work of the Centre – a Newhaven Churches Together project.


ARE YOU THINKING ABOUT BECOMING A CATHOLIC?  
Please feel free to come along to any of our masses and, when you are ready, please contact Fr. Ian. We regularly run information courses about Catholicism which do not commit you but instead give you the opportunity to find out more abou
 

MASS TRANSLATIONS IN POLISH:
There are translations of the mass text available at the back of the Church for non-English speakers (in Polish). Please email us if you would like one be available in your language.

OUR LOCAL CATHOLIC PRIMARY SCHOOL:
