So...September is around the corner. Our children have returned to school. For most parishioners holidays are over for this year. No doubt everybody had a good time and all are refreshed and ready to continue our liturgical journey to the Lord.
I want , on my own behalf and that of Frs. Tom and Eddie, to welcome one and all to this new academic and liturgical year. I want too, once again, to say a Big THANKS to so many people who made our parish such a vital and energising spiritual experience in the past twelve months. Our Family Mass team contributed hugely to our vibrant liturgies. Our Folk Group was a joy to so many, any number of compliments were paid to the members for their vital contribution to Mass throughout the past year. Our Readers, Eucharistic Ministers, etc. gave so much of their time and effort to enhancing our weekend Mass...in so many different ways serving their Parish brothers and sisters.
And so we begin again. I have no doubt that there will be a renewed enthusiasm to honour the Lord in the Liturgy. May all we say and do all we can, throughout the Mass, and indeed in every one of our activities ,to honour the Jesus who came THAT WE MIGHT HAVE LIFE , AND HAVE IT TO THE FULL.
Parent and Toddler Group
Volunteers are urgently required to enable us to reopen our Parent and Toddler group. We are looking for people (male or female of all ages) who have a couple of hours to spare on Thursday morning’s. We have the venue, we have the toddlers, we have the toys, and all we need is willing volunteers. Please come and give it a try. Please contact any of the priests or Marion in the Parish office before September 12th. Thank you.
