The Newman Cluster will be hosting an African Mass on Sunday 19 May to celebrate Pentecost. All are welcome.

Mass is at Christ the King, followed by refreshments at the St John's Centre next door.

The cluster is made up of the churches Christ the King, Kingstanding, Our Lady of the Assumption, Maryvale and St Margaret Mary, Perry Common. The common link around Newman is the Sacred Heart Chapel at Maryvale and St Margaret Mary's devotion to the Sacred Heart. 

The Mass will be concelebrated by Fathers The-Quang Ngyuen, Simon Ellis and Leonard Cox, and Monsignor Daniel McHugh, the Ethnic Chaplaincy co-ordinator for the Archdiocese.

The liturgy and music will be drawn from the African communities represented in the Newman Cluster, and African dress is also encouraged.

If you are providing traditional dishes for the meal afterwards please let Deacon Gary O'Brien know on 07546 262023.

The same request is made if priests and deacons are wishing to attend so adequate seating can be provided in the sanctuary.
