SHARE THE JOURNEY continues
An online petition is up and running already. Visit https://cafod.org.uk/Campaign/Share-the-Journey
So far OLSE members have walked 1518 miles and signed 84 cards to the Prime Minister.
Already, the target of notching up 24,000 miles (once round the earth) has been met three-fold!
“Share the Journey” is an attempt to empathise with the often-dangerous journeys of refugees and migrants, to dispose minds to address their problems,
and to welcome those who are in our midst.
Let’s continue.....
Please return completed cards to the box at the back of church, where there are also some spares and some walk recording slips. Stephen Garsed

TAKING STEPS TO END A LIFE !
Our Supreme Court has judged that it is not unlawful to kill people by taking food and drink away from them. Yet the intention is to end their lives sooner than would otherwise happen. We can have all sorts of “kindly” motives, but in doing so we judge that a patient’s life should be ended. A ‘patient’ is a person. If we allow ourselves to choose to end a person’s life, we have crossed a line into euthanasia by refusing to give basic natural sustenance to that person.
Such a massive decision is not for a few judges – it is for a nation’s Parliament.
(See Tablet, 4th August)
We should contact our MPs and the government to protest this, loud and strong. For many of us, the MP is wallaceb@parliament.com , (or write to Mr. Ben Wallace, MP, House of Commons, London.) Give your address and postcode to prove you’re a constituent. If in another constituency, search for your MP online.

Recent Volunteer Missionary Movement (VMM) Appeal:
‘Please give our great thanks to your parishioners for their extremely generous donations. We are all absolutely thrilled with the response. The money raised from this Parish Appeal (£529) will help fund our volunteers working alongside people in some of the poorest parts of East Africa and Sierra Leone.’

Adult helpers, please, for the hospital Information Desk. People appreciate this help. You will serve the community. Sylvia Turner 01772 524206 or Julie on 01257 247536

SEPTEMBER

ANNUAL CLEATOR PILGRIMAGE
Sunday, 2n
The principal celebrant and preacher will be Bishop Paul Swarbrick. This year’s theme: Our Lady, Queen of Peace. In the grounds at Cleator, (West Cumbria) we have a beautiful replica of the Lourdes grotto, and also statues of the Cure of Ars and St Therese of Lisieux. The pilgrimage will be an opportunity not only to honour Mary the Mother of God, but also these two great saints, and to ask their intercession for healing and peace. Long journey, but rewarding!
As usual we invite the young people, age 16+, to walk in pilgrimage from Honister across Haystacks into Ennerdale. The walk is about 10 miles each day and concludes with the diocesan Mass at Cleator at 3pm.
