Pastor's Desk: Feast of Saints Peter and Paul
Welcome everyone as we celebrate today the two pivotal Saints of our Church, Saints Peter & Paul. Both of them were so important to the preaching of the Gospel for the early church. Each brought their individual gifts and talents and also their weaknesses. But the Spirit of God was able to shine through them and win many converts for Christ. The annual “Peter’s Pence” Collection for the Pontifical Charities of Pope Francis will be taken up today.
Fr. Joe Collins RIP
At the Saturday Vigil Mass this weekend we remember the anniversary of our much loved and respected first Parish Priest, Fr. Joe Collins. It is remarkable to encounter the genuine affection and love there is in our community for Fr. Joe. As someone who never met the man in life, I feel that his spirit is very much still in our parish. At the mere mention of his name, people’s faces change to smiles as they recount the wonderful man who guided our parish from 1975-1979. May his soul, and the souls of the faithful departed, rest in peace. Amen.

Trinity Weekly takes a break!
There will be no Trinity Weekly until the beginning of September and I want to thank everyone who has taken the time to submit items for the much valued weekly newsletter. In particular I want to thank Clare in the Parish Office for the hard work of putting the newsletter together, typesetting and printing it off so that it is in place each week for us to read. The July/August edition of the monthly Trinity News will be ready for distribution next weekend, please God.
