Parish Pilgrimage to Lourdes. 45 people have now booked for the Sept 26th trip to Lourdes. A few more rooms are available in the hotel for people sharing. They would prefer not to accept singles.

 

A Note to our Readers. I want to begin by thanking our many readers who overall do a really good job of communicating the words of scripture to the congregation. I would also like to ask that all readers be aware of some guidelines relating to your ministry. a. Before and after the readings; reverence the altar (i.e. bow to the altar). At weekends the bow after the readings should be done along with the Mass servers at the altar steps. b. At the end of each reading allow for a pause before acclaiming: TheWord of the Lord (NOT: This is the Word of the Lord). c. The Gospel Acclamation. The Alleluia, Alleluia at the beginning and end can and should be sung preferably by the lead singer, the words in between however should be said by the congregation with the reader. ~ Thanks: Fr John

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 POWER OF PUTTING GOD IN CONTROL By Pablo Diaz.  Most people equate the word “surrender” to a negative action such as quitting or submitting to defeat. Yet those who are “in control” and take matters into their own hands are often praised by our media. The irony of this is that, over time, we all age or get ill and must surrender part, if not all, control to others. The dictionary defines “surrender” as “to yield (something) to the possession or power of another; deliver up possession on demand or under duress.” We humans are naturally resistant to giving our power to others. We want to be economically, professionally and even personally self-sufficient. But it is this same spirit that can keep us from fully committing ourselves spiritually or wanting to give ourselves completely to anyone. And this thought process goes against what it means to whole-heartily follow, submit and give our all to God. When we resist handing over full control of our lives to God, we miss out. It is only when we surrender and give our all, that we begin to grow as someone not possessed by materialistic things or power, but by love, peace and grace. This is when giving becomes more important than receiving. Jesus said, “Whoever wants to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for me will save it.”   Why such an expectation and demand? Unless we surrender our personal power and will, it’s difficult to be under His Lordship. But when we finally let go, we experience the power of surrendering to a gracious, loving God whose greatest desire is to help us live to the fullest. God, help me to give You my all so that I may experience the power to be completely under Your leadership.

Faith in Action Group - Parish Live Simply Project Following Dymphna Mallon’s recent visit, 14 parishioners met last Tuesday evening to discuss possible ways forward on the parish’s response to Climate Change following the Pope’s recent Encyclical, Laudato Si.  We found that out of several options and projects, the CAFOD ‘LiveSimply’ Award was the most practical and achievable for our parish, some of which we are already doing.  We spent our time last Tuesday going through the award scheme and agreed to meet again on Monday 9th May at 7pm in the Presbytery to take this further forward.  Anyone who would like to attend is very welcome to join us on May 9th.  Although the Group are ‘steering’ the project on behalf of the parish, it is something that we hope the whole parish will take ownership of, and will want to support and contribute to.  A more detailed outline has been placed on the parish noticeboard.  Please do have a read. 

 

There will be a second collection next Sunday 24th April for Vocations. The purpose of the World Day of Prayer for Vocations is to publically fulfill the Lord's instruction to, "Pray the Lord of the harvest to send labourers into his harvest" (Mt 9:38; Lk 10:2). 

10th April

Following Dymphna Mallon’s recent visit The Faith in Action Group will meet on Tuesday April 12th at 7:00 in the Presbytery to discuss how the Parish can move forward on the issue of CLIMATE CHANGE and how to feed into such initiatives as CAFOD's Simple Life which was inspired by the Pope Francis’ recent encyclical. Following CAFOD’s ‘livesimply’ enables us to strengthen the bonds of community, it nourishes our spiritual life and helps us to care for God's gift of creation. If you are at all interested in formulating a parish response to the Pope’s initiative please join us in the presbytery   ALL IDEAS AND NEW MEMBERS ARE WELCOME.

 

Good Friday collection: The collection taken up for the maintenance of Holy Places in the Holy Land amounted to £728.70. Many thanks for your generosity.
