The Church’s Year comes to an end on Sunday 22nd November. On that day, we celebrate the solemnity of Jesus Christ the King. We thank God that we are sisters and brothers of King Jesus. This year it is also our fifty years as Diocese. We thank God for all his blessings over the years. We also thank God for all those, who over those years, have said 'yes' to give glory to God through placing their time, talent and treasure in service of the church.
The following Sunday 29th November is Advent Sunday, the beginning of a New church year, cycle B or year 2. More on this later.
Last Sunday we had our children’s Mass, in which our children played leading roles. A special thanks to the families who made it possible for the children to participate and thanks to those who prepared them. We were all touched through the celebration.
A reminder that Seminarian Omaris Valmond and Seminarian Moses Gikandi will be ordained as transient Deacons on 12 December this year in Trinidad. The transient means that they will be ordained priests about next year, please God. Remember them in your prayers.
We are still hoping to restart our Sunday School. Sister Mercy is anxious to have them back.
At our recently held Parish Pastoral Council meeting, we agreed to have our Christmas Eve Children’s Mass at 6:30 pm. We need your children to participate in spite of Covid-19. Of course, the necessary protocols will be observed.
Our Reading Program held a successful Movie Night to herald the restart of the project. Some thirty young people attended. Thanks to all who made it a success.
Fr. Clement Paul.
Rev. Stephen Joseph.
