First Holy Communions: The great day of Sunday 2 June has arrived for our 16 candidates who will receive Our Lord for the first time in Bedford and in Chesham Bois, before walking in Eucharistic procession outdoors. Our cubs and wolvets and all scouts and guides will process wearing their uniforms. It will be a low Mass with hymns, followed by a procession of the blessed Sacrament around the church grounds, ending with short Benediction. Four dads of First Communicants will carry the canopy in Bedford.

Photos can be taken at the end.

From Ireland Fr Coelho wrote: “I hope everything goes well tomorrow and I pray for the little ones that will receive Jesus for the first time, so that they can live in a way that allows them to be always prepared to receive Jesus and that each communion makes them more united to Jesus, the only thing that matters in this world.”

To honour Our Lord carried outdoors, and as a pious consideration in this warmer weather, all adults, teenagers and children are kindly requested to wear their Sunday best (chest, back, legs and shoulders covered; dresses and mantillas welcome for ladies; suit and ties welcome for gentlemen; no sport shoes or casual attire; avoid clothes displaying worldly or commercial signs or brands). Thank you.

 June is dedicated to the Sacred Heart of Jesus. Do your best to attend 8am Holy Mass this Friday, gaining a plenary indulgence for the public recitation of the Act of Reparation to the Sacred Heart (Baronius missals p. 1871).

On Saturday 8 June exceptionally, confessions will be heard AFTER the 10am Mass, NOT from 9am.

After visiting the Ibabu, the Jones, the Carey, the Hallam and the Baron families, Our Lady of Walsingham will this Sunday accompany the Moxham family home. We thank them for including the intentions of our two congregations in their daily recitation of the litany of Loreto before the statue. Book your week on the sign-up sheet after holy Mass this Sunday.
