Fr. Duncan writes:

Dear Parishioners,this Sunday we celebrate the Feast of ASCENSION OF THE LORD. This is a celebration of the promise of the Lord to be with us always and not simply a commemoration of the departure of the Lord. It is this promise that ensures the effectiveness of our mission as Church, the people of God, to preach the gospel to all nations. We gather as the Church in obedience to Christ. We do so in the joyful celebration of Christ’s Ascension. We do so in the knowledge that he promised to be with us always. Today our task is to be living witnesses of his presence and his love.

This Sunday we have the first of our Parish First Communion Sundays. At the 10.00am and 12.00noon Masses 41 of our younger parishioners will be receiving Jesus for the first time in the Sacrament of the Eucharist. The second group of 38 children will be receiving Jesus for the first time next Sunday 15th May again at the 10.00am and 12.00noon Masses. Please pray for them, their parents and catechists as they complete their preparations for these special days. Rehearsals will take place on the Friday evenings. These rehearsals are very important to ensure the children and their parents understand fully what is involved. I am particularly grateful to Sandra Mace and her team of catechists, who have been teaching the children and have prepared them to receive this Sacrament. Please keep them all in your prayers.

PLEASE NOTE – CHANGE OF MASS TIMES THIS SUNDAY and NEXT SUNDAY MORNING

On Saturday evening our Confirmation Candidates and their families came together to give thanks to God for the Gifts of the Holy Spirit they received. Now is the time for them to be thinking about these gifts and how they are going to use them on their journey of faith. There are many opportunities here in our parish. Some of these young people are Altar Servers; others are members of one of the choirs. They could join our team of readers, help with Children’s Liturgy, or become a catechist. These are just a few of the ways they can use their skills and talents.
