20th November 2009

The paper I wrote and circulated last week regarding the Papal Apostolic Constitution, provoked the best response I’ve ever had to a Midweek/End-of-Week Message. Thank you to all who took the trouble to write an email in reply or who have sought me out to talk about what I wrote. Every response has been positive (for which I’m most thankful!), either thanking me for explaining the whole thing to them, agreeing wholeheartedly with what I had written, or asking perfectly legitimate questions that arose out of what I had written.

I have tried to respond individually to all those who asked questions. However, some people raised similar issues which probably also crossed the minds of others who didn’t get around to writing and asking. Therefore, attached is another Word document, ‘Papal Apostolic Constitution Part 2’, with some further reflections and answers to issued raised with me.

Several other things briefly….

Children receiving Communion before Confirmation

I wrote about this in a previous Midweek Message. If there are any other parents, beyond the ones who have already spoken to me, who would like their children included in forthcoming preparation classes, please would they get in touch with me ASAP. If anyone wants to discuss this with me first, then please also get in touch.

Confirmation

Bishop Geoffrey, the Anglican Bishop in Europe, will be making a pastoral visit to Prague on the weekend of 1st & 2nd May 2010. He will be happy to conduct a Service of Confirmation on the Sunday morning should I have any suitable candidates. I do know of one candidate & would be very happy to hear from any others who might be interested. Preparation classes will be organised early in the New Year.

Lessons & Carols – Sunday 13th December at 6pm

Gerry Turner is organising a Choir to sing a few appropriate choral pieces at this service as well as to support the congregational singing of carols. If you are interested in being part of the Choir, please get in touch with Gerry by email, turner.gerald@gmail.com ASAP as he wants to organise a few rehearsals in advance of the service.

New Welcomers & Intercessors

We could always do with more people who would like to join the team of those who act as Welcomers at our services &/or who would be willing to lead intercessions. Training for both roles will be given. For Welcomers it will be on-the-job training by initially working alongside one of the experienced members of the existing team. For prospective intercessors, I will be holding a Intercessors Workshop shortly for both new and existing Intercessors. If you could help in either of these roles, please get in touch with me.

And finally for this week…..

As some of you know, near the end of February both Sybille & I have our respective birthdays. They fall two days, but ‘a few’ years, apart. On Friday 26th February 2010, our joint ages will total 100. Therefore on that evening we are going to hold a 100th Birthday Party. Hence, there will be an open invitation to all would like to help us celebrate. This is just an early warning about the date – more details will follow. If you would like to help Ricky & Sybille celebrate their joint 100th birthday, make sure you are in Prague and keep the evening of Friday 26th February 2010 free. If you need a babysitter for the evening, book them now.

This Sunday 22nd November at 11am – Sung Eucharist followed by Coffee Hour.

Best wishes

Ricky
