DIOCESE OF BRENTWOOD

RESTRUCTURING AND RENEWAL OF OUR DIOCESE.

The current e-bulletin is available on the Diocese’s website htts:www.dioceseofbrentwood.net/departments/development/stewards-of-the-gospel/current-e-bulletin.  Parishioners without access to the internet can obtain a hard copy from the Steward of the Gospel via the Parish Office.

Divine Renovation – Bringing your parish from maintenance to mission has been described as the most effective model of Evangelisation. The members of Pastoral PARISH Council is studying the work of Fr James Mallon in preparation to introduce this model in our Parish. All parishioners are welcome to join us on this journey by reading the book and or watching the videos of Fr James on Youtube.com.  

 

SVP ANNUAL SERVICE OF REMEMBRANCE is on Sunday 15th of September at Christ the King.

 

MARRIAGE IN CHURCH.  Couples thinking of getting married are reminded to register in good time (minimum of 6 months’ notice). Contact the parish office to make an appointment to see Fr. Kevin and he will help you from there.  Couples planning to marry in another parish or even outside the country should realise that the process properly begins here.

 

BAPTISM. Application forms for infant Baptism are available in the porch.  Please fill in and present to parish secretary during office hours.  It is unwise to organise a reception until the date of the baptism has been approved by Fr. Kevin. It is a Diocesan requirement that you are registered in this parish for at least six months.

 

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED.  Ever wanted to help the refugees in Calais but unsure how?  We run weekend convoys from Brentwood to volunteer with refugee charities there.  Never mind the reasons WHY migrants are in Calais – the fact is they’re there – without resources, hungry, struggling.  We feel strongly that part of our Christian mission is to support them.  Please think about this & volunteer.  Next Trips: 13-15th Sept, 22 - 24th Nov & 31 Jan – 2 Feb.  Sign up for a convoy or donate with compassion atwww.calaislight.com.

 

PARISH MEMBERSHIP. We are aware that some people have left the parish and while others have joined us.  To those newly arrived we say welcome and wish you a peaceful time here.  We hope and pray that your coming to St. Patricks will satisfy your need to have a meaningful relationship with God and help you to meet new friends. Do introduce yourself to Fr. Kevin and register with the Parish Secretary and make sure you are known in case you plan to have a child receive a sacrament or apply for a place in a Catholic school.

 

RED MISSIO BOX please drop all your boxes for emptying.  Thank you all for your contribution.  – Dolly Relopez

PRAYER OF ST. FRANCIS OF ASSISI: PRAYER FOR PEACE  Lord, make me an instrument of your peace, Where there is hatred, let me sow love; where there is injury, pardon; where there is doubt, faith; where there is despair, hope; where there is darkness, light; where there is sadness, joy; O Divine Master, grant that I may seek not so much to be consoled as to console; to be understood as to understand; to be loved as to love. For it is in giving that we receive; it is in pardoning that we are pardoned; and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life. Amen.

 

***********************************************

7 BACK-TO-SCHOOL PRAYERS FOR KIDS by Pablo Diaz.  A new school year is underway, filled with new opportunities, excitement and challenges. There is so much that happens throughout the school year, that without prayer, it’s impossible to get from one day to another. On many occasions I recall my parents saying a prayer before we left the house for school. Once we became parents, my wife Elba and I prayed daily for our children’s well being. Although they are now grown adults, we continue to pray for them.  “Pray without ceasing,” the apostle Paul said. In prayer, we draw ourselves and loved ones closer to God. As our children, youth and young adults return back to school, we pray:
 Prayer of thanksgiving — “Lord, thank you for the energy and joy of our children.”
 Prayer for protection — “Lord, keep a watchful eye on them and keep them safe.”
 Prayer for guidance — “Lord, guide them to make wise decisions and follow sound  advice.”
 Prayer for peace — “Lord, keep our children calm in the midst of a noisy world.”
 Prayer for wisdom — “Lord, give me the wisdom to raise them with love and integrity.”
 Prayer for purpose — “Lord, let your will and purpose be fulfilled in their lives.”
 Prayer for learning — “Lord, may they have an open mind and spirit to grow in knowledge.”As adults, it’s our responsibility to keep our kids in prayer as they begin to navigate throughout this school year. Let’s also pray for their teachers, assistants and administrators who will help guide them upon this path. Lord, we pray as kids return back to school that they will grow in knowledge, expand their curiosity, for their safety and for all who serve them.
