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.  

 

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.

THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN FAITH AND TRUST IN GOD - How can we learn to truly put our trust in God? by Pablo Diaz.   Recently, I wrote about my mother’s heart valve replacement and her fear around scheduling the necessary procedure. My mother’s faith in God is strong and always has been, but worried that something would go wrong, she couldn’t face having the surgery until she consciously put all of her trust in the Lord’s hands. Her situation left me wondering…is there a difference between faith and trust? This question has been on my mind for a while now. It is one thing to believe in God, but another entirely to trust blindly in Him. And it is human nature to fear the unknown. The struggle with placing our trust entirely in God is something we must all face at one time or another. It boils down to this: faith is a belief system; trust is action. Faith is believing that God is who God says He is and that what God can do, only God can do. But trust takes things a step further. It is making the wilful choice to trust that God will do what He promises. The head versus heart.  Here’s an example. In the Gospel, there is a story of a sick child whose father told Jesus, “I believe, help my unbelief.” Just like the father in the story, my mother had faith in God. But she needed to trust that God was in control of her situation before moving forward with the procedure. Most of us believe in the power of God thanks to our personal experiences and through reading the Bible. But putting these beliefs into action can be a true challenge for most. Placing our trust in God is our choice and one that we must make wholeheartedly. But no matter what, God is with us.  Lord, help us put our faith into action so that we can trust You wholeheartedly with our lives.
