News and Events at St Mary Magdalen Parish
This Saturday, 2nd December from 9am to 1pm, we will be selling Christmas Trees in the church car park to raise funds for the charitable work of the Parish. For details of prices and payment options please click the PDF icon.
Please be careful of scams as many people have been contacted recently with a false message asking for money such as via Google Play or Amazon. Neither Fr Adrian nor anyone in the Parish would contact you in this way. If you get any suspicious or seemingly genuine text or email always, without clicking on any links, hover the cursor over them to check if the link is genuine or not. Please remember to check the text of messages as spelling mistakes and close to but not exact names such as Magdalene instead of Magdalen without the ‘e’ or requests for urgent help in getting a gift or help with lost luggage should raise suspicions. If it is an email please report it to email@example.com and
if it’s a text message you can forward the text to 7726 (which is free).
REMEMBERING THE HOLY SOULS
At Mass we pray for all those living and all those who have died, including those whose faith is known to God alone. As well as our daily prayers for the dead, each November the Church takes time to remember those who have died, praying and offering Mass for the repose of their souls. Following this tradition many request Masses for the Holy Souls and write down the names of
family and friends who have died in Lists of Remembrance. Fr Adrian has especially remembered in prayer at every Mass all those who died.

Prayers for the Divine Mercy
On the Second Sunday of Easter the Church celebrates Divine Mercy Sunday.
The message of Divine Mercy is threefold.
It teaches Catholics to pray for Jesus’ mercy, to be merciful, and to completely trust in Jesus.
The chaplet of Divine Mercy is traditionally prayed on Fridays at 3 pm, the hour in which Jesus perished on the cross.
The Divine Mercy prayers are easy to follow and the Chaplet can be prayed on an ordinary Rosary
or on your fingers if you don’t have one. They can be found on the website www.thedivinemercy.org/message/devotions/pray-the-chaplet
A particular way to listen to or join in the prayers is through a sung version
which can be found every day on EWTN.com or via https://youtu.be/p5TGfisOKMM.
