Ash Wednesday at OLEM and in Cambourne

There are Masses at OLEM for Ash Wednesday (18th Feb) at 8am, 12.15pm and at 7.30pm.

In addition, there is a joint service, run by Churches Together in Cambourne at 7pm at the church in Cambourne. CTC have warmly invited us to attend this service.

Ash Wednesday is an official day of fasting and abstinence in the Catholic church, and we are invited to join the universal church in eating less than we would normally do and abstaining completely from meat.

It is not a Holy Day of Obligation, so attendance at Mass is encouraged but is optional.

Adoration and Reconciliation 14/2/2015

There will be Adoration from 4pm on Saturday 14th Feb.  Please do come along for a time of silent prayer before the Blessed Sacrament.

While this is happening, a priest will be available for the sacrament of Reconciliation. Always worthwhile, but particularly so as we approach the season of Lent.

Week of Christian Unity (Sat 24th January)

During the Week of Christian Unity (18th-25th January), we will be having a bring-and-share meal after our Mass on the 24th.  We are inviting members of Churches Together in Cambourne and of the Indian Orthodox community to join us for this.  Please do join us for this wonderful celebration of unity even in our differences (unity is not the same as uniformity).

Please consider bringing a small item of food to share, if you are able.  You are, of course, welcome either way.

Election of new committee

After Mass, this week (22nd November), we will be electing three new people to sit on the church committee to replace three members who are stepping down.

Many thanks to Lori Cavin, Tony Jennings and Mel Ward for their dedicated service and great ideas over the last year, and we look forward to welcoming new ideas with the new people.

31st October blessing, adoration and bring-and-share

On Friday 31st October, in the Ark, at 8pm, we will be blessing our new statue of Our Lady of Walsingham, Eucharistic Adoration, and concluding the Month of the Rosary by saying the rosary together.  After this, there will be a bring-and-share meal, with the usual quantity of fine chat and good friendship.

Do come along.

Indian Orthodox Church – food festival 11/10/14

This just in from Susan Suku and Lissamma Tity of the Indian Orthodox Church, who meet at the Church in Cambourne too:

Good Morning, We are delighted to announce that we are conducting a Food Festival with varieties of home made traditional Indian dishes on Saturday the 11th October at 11:00 am to 1:30pm.

The Venue will be at Cambourne Church Centre.

This is an opportunity for you to be free at home without preparing a lunch. So come along and be our clientele.

This year the food festival is going to be bigger and better than ever with lots and lots of wonderful traditional Indian dishes which include Chicken biriyani, Kappa biriyani, Cutlet, Fish Curry, Beef Fry and many more.

The money that we raise from this Food Festival will be used for the Church renovation at Papworth.

Please could I request you to come and enjoy a great feast at your home. It is only through your support that we are able to make this event a great success.

Thank you for supporting us in the past. We couldn’t do it without you.

Kind Regards, Susan Suku / Lissamma Tity
