You may recall that just before the lock down we began to collect information from people for a Spiritual Bouquet to be prepared for Dominic on his Ordination. The Bouquet listed the following:

Decades of the Rosary

Reciting the Divine mercy

Holy Communions

Visits to the Blessed Sacrament


Stations of the Cross

Remembrance at Mass

Acts of Penance

Some of these acts will be in anticipation for when we can hold services in our churches again. Several people have already made commitments and these have been recorded. If you would like to make a commitment and have not had the opportunity to do so then email me or text 07484111906 with details of you commitment. Please respond by Sunday 31st May so that we have time to prepare the document.

I asked Dominic some time ago what the parishes of the Immaculate Conception and St Gerard’s could give him as gifts and he asked that we help him with the cost of his Ordination Vestments and the purchase of a Chalice and Pattern. These items have been obtained at a cost of £850. If you would like to make a donation then please make out a cheque to St Marys Rotherham and deliver to my house or transfer direct to the parish bank account. The sort code is 40 41 07 account number 51094262 branch Sheffield bank HSBC name of the account St Mary’s Rotherham.

To help with the recording of the donation please make the transfer on the 29th May if possible.

Thank you, Fr. Desmond.
