Mass & BBQ for Venezuela : – The Redemptorist community of St Alphonse have received an urgent request from their collegues in Venezuela for emergency support: the people of Venezuela do not have what they need to live, and the situation in this once-rich country is deteriorating rapidly. This is an humanitarian emergency.
The English-speaking Catholic community and the Spanish-speaking community are celebrating together a Mass of Solidarity with the people of Venzuela — praying, raising awareness, and offering much needed practical help. The Mass, at 11:15 next Sunday (22nd July) will be followed by a barbecue in the garden of St Alphonse. Tickets are €10/€5 and are available after all Masses, and at the BBQ.
See previous posting. Don’t miss Alizeti this evening at the Black Stuff! Friday 13th… What could go wrong?
Alizeti are a musical ensemble already well-known in the English-speaking Catholic community and beyond: Good people, playing good music, for a good cause (in my opinion! — Fr Ed) You can book Alizeti to play at your event, and payment simply involves a donation to the Illula Orphanage Project in Tanzania. See the flyer for more information.
You are advised to check with the cinema for the language version.
This film is currently being shown at the Ciné Utopia in English. More information can be found at http://www.kinepolis.lu

(re parish : strictly speaking, of course, the English-speaking Catholic Community does not constitute a parish — we are part of the Parish of Luxembourg Notre-Dame, which is made up of the city centre communities and various language groupings. The term parish, however, is too convenient to give up, so we use it in an informal, non-canonical sense).
