The Pope’s Intentions for November
Universal: Dialogue That we may be open to personal encounter and dialogue with all, even those who convictions differ from our own.

Evangelisation: Pastors That pastors of the Church, with profound love for their flocks, may accompany them and enliven their hope.


Outreach to Families

The Parish Pastoral Council (PPC) has been reflecting on how the Parish might reach out more to families. We are hoping to make the 12.00 Noon Mass on Sunday 13th December a special Family Mass (provided there is not a funeral). From now, we invite all families to come to Mass on that date.  Let it be a gathering of young and old.  Volunteers for Readings and Prayers of Faithful etc. are requested.  Please put names and telephone nos. in the box near the altar.

Prayer for Families

God and Father of us all
in Jesus, your Son and our Saviour,
you have made us your sons and daughers
in the family of the Church.

May your grace and love
help our families in every part of the world
be united to one another in fidelity to the Gospel.

May the example of the Holy Family,
with the aid of your Holy Spirit,
guide all families, especially those most troubled,
to be homes of communion and prayer
and to always seek your truth and live in your love.
Through Christ our Lord.  Amen.
