FIRST HOLY COMMUNION

Please remember in your prayers the thirteen children of our wider parish who will make their First Holy Communion on Sunday 23rd  at St Joseph’s Church in Tewkesbury.

This is a larger group than we have had for some time and the church will be very full.  All are asked to please use the council car park in Tewkesbury as far as possible (which is free on Sunday mornings and has a very short walk-through to St Joseph’s) unless you have some mobility problems.

On Saturday 29th June there is the final session and celebration together 10.30-12.00pm when the focus is on the children giving thanks, both to God and those in our parishes who have helped the children on ‘their journey so far’!

Image result for clip art oberammergauChurches together in Winchcombe is organising a visit in two years time to the world-famous Oberammergau Passion Play.  The play has been performed at regular intervals since 1634 and now takes place every ten years.

A planned trip from Winchcombe will combine the visit to Oberammergau with a few days’ holiday in Austria.  (Oberammergau is a small village in Bavaria close to the Austrian border).  Flying on Wednesday 3 June 2020 from Birmingham to Munich, the group will be staying in Strobl on the Wolfgangsee amidst the lakes and mountains of the Salzkammergut.  There will be some time in the picturesque city of Salzburg and then two days in Oberammergau itself for the Passion Play, before flying home on Wednesday, 10th June.
