Pastor's Desk: 26th Sunday in Ordinary Time

Posted 26th September 2009 in Pastor's Desk

Just a few thoughts on the words I Believe…

I Believe…
That we don’t have to change friends if we understand that friends change.
That no matter how good a friend is, they’re going to hurt you every once in a while and you must forgive them for that.
That you can do something in an instant that will give you heartache for life.
That it’s taking me a long time to become the person I want to be.
That we are responsible for what we do no matter how we feel.
That people you care about most in life are the essence of life.

The Family Mass Group are back after the summer break!
Our Family Mass liturgy is making its welcome return this Sunday. Last year our group was very successful due to a number of factors.

Firstly, the children’s willingness to get involved in the Mass, and there is lots for them to do ranging from reading to taking part in our processions to getting involved in drama and liturgical dance. It is a great opportunity to build confidence and make the children feel a real part of the parish community.

Secondly, the dedication and commitment shown by our team was outstanding and very much appreciated.

So this year we begin again at the usual time of 12.30 every Sunday afternoon during the entire school year. Spread the word!

If you know of anyone who plays a musical instrument and would like to join our Family Mass Group, please put them in contact with either me or Fr. Eoin.

Volunteering Sunday
On Sunday 4th October you will have a chance to join the many groups that are currently active in our parish. It is your opportunity to deepen your commitment to our parish by using the gifts God has given you, if that be as a reader, member of the baptismal team, family mass group etc. Whatever it may be, ‘take the leap of faith’, don’t let this opportunity pass you and join a parish group that you can make a contribution to.

We pray that the good Lord will continue to bless and protect us all in the week ahead.

God bless.
Fr. Gary
