Roman Catholic Church of St. Thomas of Canterbury, Fulham
in the Archdiocese of Westminster.
For this Sunday 7th August 2016
Letter of Fr. Dennis to the Community:
My Dear Friends,
Please note that this Sunday’s newsletter will be the last until the beginning of September. Fr Javier will be leaving us on the 21st of the month and I will be convalescing both here and in the country from this coming Wednesday! I hope these summer days will be a happy time for us all, and that we will all return home truly refreshed. Mary will be in the parish office to answer your questions day by day, but please remember that the office is open only from 10 am until 2 pm each weekday.
Whilst Fr Javier and I are away, we are deeply grateful for the help which is being offered by many priests of our Deanery, and beyond. They will be coming along to maintain, as far as possible, the daily and Sunday Masses. However, there may be occasions when, of necessity, there have to be some small variations to our normal routine, so I would ask you all to look at the church notice board by the newspaper table, each weekend, so that you will not be caught out! I am sorry about this but events have caught us out rather un-expectedly this summer.
The 12 noon Mass will continue to be sung throughout the summer, and I am very grateful to Mr Roger Burton for coming back to us to play; thank you Roger, and welcome home! May I also remind all of our Readers that there is no formal rota during these coming weeks, so please be attentive and be prepared to step forward to read; thank you for your important ministry.
Finally, on behalf of Fr Javier and myself may I wish you all a truly wonderful summer break and be assured of our affection and prayers.
Fr. Dennis Touw – Tempelmans Plat. Parish Priest
Fr. F. Javier Ruiz-Ortiz . Assistant Priest
