One or two people have asked what we can do about the current refugee crisis. As you may know Brighton
Voices in Exile which works for refugees, viagra buy asylum seekers and the victims of torture has its office in the basement of my house the Presbytery, more about and uses the Parish Centre every Tuesday as a meeting place and clinic. It also feeds anyone who turns up.

We already do a great deal as a parish, side effects and have been doing so for many years. Yet we need to do more!

If you want to donate money make a cheque out to ‘Brighton Voices in Exile’. If you are an Arabic speaker or can offer other help, contact them on I notice their website has been hacked, maybe someone in
the parish could offer to help them out. Unfortunately the funding they used to receive from the government has
been pared back to nothing and they are working on an entirely voluntary basis, without our support they would
not exist. One of the most useful things you could do is to write to your MP to plead for funding for them.

If you do ‘Facebook’, why not befriend them there.

During our weekend retreat, view Fr. Stephen commented on how nice it was to see those in the parish making such good use of the Sacrament of Confession. Confession was available during all Masses, clinic as well as during the Holy Hours.

Please be reminded that Confession is available after every Mass at St. Mary Magdalen and also, by arrangement if required outside these times.

As Pope Francis said :

every time we go to confession, God embraces us
