Have you seen Sunday Plus? Free month's trial available for your parish!
Sunday Plus is a bright and upbeat weekly bulletin for today’s Catholic. Covering a multitude of topics, Plus helps readers engage their faith with the often challenging reality of day-to-day life.
In this week's thought-provoking edition, David Wells, Director of Adult Religious Education for the Diocese of Plymouth, asks us to think about perfection: not about getting everything right, but being generous to those who irritate us – who may be God’s training ground for our own perfection. Click here to view this Sunday's Sunday Plus.
If you would like a free month's trial of this, or any of our other parish bulletins, without any further obligation, you just have to ask and as long as we have sufficient stocks, we will provide you with copies immediately. Let us know how many copies you require each week, your parish name and delivery address and we will send you enough to cover a full month in your parish absolutely free.

Bidding Prayers for Sunday 13th April 2014
Let us now bring our prayers to God, our heavenly Father.
We bring to God all families where a child – of any age - has died: may God’s loving arms enfold them at this difficult time.
We pray that all who are on trial receive fair justice, and that victims and their families find closure and peace.
We pray for all those who were injured or killed in the Hillsborough football disaster so many years ago, and for their families: may they all find God’s loving consolation and peace.
We bring to God all those affected by the recent missing Malaysian plane: for their families still awaiting news and for all the services continuing to work together to find answers.
Heavenly Father, who sent your Son Jesus Christ to bring your message of salvation to the world, we offer these prayers in your name, O loving and generous God. Amen.
