NOTICES AND EVENTS

Solemnity of All Saints

Scripture Refelection

Saints are creations of the Gospel and the Church. Newman

 

Holiness is a gift which no one can acquire through their own efforts. Since holiness comes from God, it must be always and continually asked for with humility. In this sense Newman invokes the Holy Spirit: “Through Thee our own dead souls are quickened to serve Thee. From Thee is every good thought and desire, every good purpose, every good effort, every good success. It is by Thee that sinners are turned into saints. It is by Thee the Church is refreshed and strengthened, and champions start forth, and martyrs are carried on to their crown. Through Thee new religious orders, new devotions in the Church come into being; new countries are added to the faith. I praise and adore Thee, my Sovereign Lord, the Holy Spirit.”

 

All holy women and men… Pray for us.

 

Notices

NOVEMBER REMEMBRANCE

 

All Souls Day on Monday 3 November will be marked by two Masses. One at 9 am and one at 7.30 pm.

 

Remembrance Sunday will be observed in our customary way with an appropriate act of remembrance at each of the weekend Masses. There will be added significance and poignancy given that it is 100 years since the First World War began. On Tuesday 11 November there will be a short act of remembrance at the memorial outside the old church. Please gather at 10.50 am

 

The Annual Mass for Deceased Parishioners will take place on Thursday 13 November  at 7pm. 

 

To ensure that your own deceased relatives and friends are included in our Book of Remembrance please take a copy of the blank November list 2014 this week for inclusion.


Christ is the morning star
Who when the night
Of this world is past
Brings to his saints
The promise of
The light of life
and opens everlasting day.

Prayer of Saint Bede


May He support us all the day long, till the shades lengthen and the evening comes, and the busy world is hushed, and the fever of life is over, and our work is done. Then in His mercy may He give us a safe lodging, and a holy rest and peace at the last. Amen.

Prayer of John Henry Newman

 

 

It may seem rather early for us to be thinking about Christmas when there are still weeks to pass before Advent. However, the gifts we donate with our giving tree to the families and individuals cared for through the Saint Joseph Family Centre need to be prepared for distribution at the beginning of December.

 

Please take one of the tags on our tree and bring the suggested gift over the next few weeks.


Love is a sacred reserve of energy: it is like the blood of spiritual evolution.

Teilhard de Chardin
