Sunday 18th October is Mission Sunday. The theme is “Here I am, send me.” Pope Francis is asking us to renew our baptismal commitment on that day and to pray for all missionaries. Please be extra generous with your collection. It will go towards the missionary work of the Church.
Our Parish Pastoral Council held a virtual meeting on Wednesday and plans were made for the remainder of the year.
Sunday 18th October will be Youth Mass. In fact every third Sunday will be Youth/Children’s Mass.
The Feast of Christ the King will be celebrated with a Diocesan Mass at the Cathedral on Saturday evening 6:00pm. Our parishes will then celebrate on Sunday 22nd. The feast marks the end of the liturgical year. We are asking for photos of events and activities from Advent Sunday 2019 to 22nd. November 2020. The Communications Team will then be asked to put together a brief report for the year. More info to come.
We need the names of all our students indicating their school and, if overseas, their contacts. Please send them to Rev. Stephen (firstname.lastname@example.org). We will continue to pray for our students.
We continue to feel the absence of our children and some regular parishioners. While we recognize that some people are trying to keep safe, we again assure everyone that we do strive to have the necessary protocols in place so that all feel safe when they attend Mass in Church. Our Lord Jesus calls to his table of the Word and Sacrament so He can feed us with Himself.
Remember Rosary Month and try to pray at least a decade of the Rosary a week, if not each day.
