24th SUNDAY OF THE YEAR

Fr. Duncan writes: September is becoming rather busy as the new academic year gets under way in our parish. As always there is a lot going on. There are details in the newsletter of when the various parish groups will be beginning after their summer break. We are now getting ready to start our parish Catechetical programmes for the ‘new term’. We are looking for some more catechists to help support our children and prepare them to receive the various Sacraments. If you can help, please speak to Sandra Mace or Fr Duncan. There are several ‘training sessions’ for catechists arranged during this month.

Confirmations
If there are any young people from our parish, in year 9 or above, or older people, who wish to be confirmed next year, they should write to Fr Duncan now. Their letter should be handwritten and include name, address, telephone number, date of birth and school attended (where applicable). We begin our course of preparation in the New Year. The young people themselves should be thinking about this sacrament and so they should write the letters themselves. Closing date for applications is Sunday 15th October.

RCIA – Interested in Becoming a Catholic?
Each year, in our parish we have a course for adults who have not been baptised and would like to be, as well as for Christians of other denominations who would like to be received into the Roman Catholic church, and Catholics who have not been confirmed. Our first meeting will be towards the end of September. We meet on Mondays at 7.00pm in the presbytery. There is a leaflet with more details in the foyer or speak to Fr. Duncan. The important thing to remember is that we are all called to be evangelizers and to spread the Good News of Jesus Christ.
