30th Sunday in Ordinary Time

Fr. Duncan writes: In October 2023 the bishops of the Church will come together in Synod. The path toward this Synod, ‘For a Synodal Church: Communion, Participation, Mission’. As we heard last week, this begins in October this year, 2021, in a worldwide invitation to all the faithful. Pope Francis has invited the entire Church to ‘reflect on a theme that is decisive for its life and mission’, the path of synodality. “The purpose of this Synod is intended to inspire people to dream about the Church we are called to be, to make people’s hopes flourish, to stimulate trust, to bind up wounds, to weave new and deeper relationships, to learn from one another, to build bridges, to enlighten minds, warm hearts, and restore strength to our hands for our common mission. Thus the objective of this synodal process is not only a series of exercises that start and stop, but rather a journey of growing authentically towards the communion and mission that God calls the Church to live out in the third millennium.” Synodality in the Life and Mission of the Church, is the process of ‘journeying together’, a way of being the Church as envisaged by the Second Vatican Council, journeying forwards in mission, together in communion where everybody has a part to play. 
Our responsibility to share in this synodal journey, this journeying together, is by virtue of our Baptism, which makes all the baptised participants in Christ’s priestly, prophetic and kingly ministry. Pope Francis asks us all ‘to enter with confidence and courage into the path of synodality’. In this “journeying together,” we ask the Spirit to help us discover how communion, which brings together in unity the variety of gifts, charisms, and ministries, is for the mission: a synodal Church is a Church “going forth,” a missionary Church “whose doors are open”. 
In the coming weeks there will be the opportunity for you to participate in this synod journey here in our parish. I am grateful to those who have agreed to help with this process
The Covid19 virus is still spreading. We need to be vigilant. In the church we are doing our best to create a safe environment to welcome all who come to Mass. This means that many of the measures we have put in place will remain, and we will keep to the ways we have become accustomed to when we come into the church. Please continue to wear facemasks in the church and sanitise your hands as you enter the church. We will maintain the social distanced seating until we are advised otherwise.

Month of the Holy Souls
November is the month of the Holy Souls when we remember especially those who have died and gone before us ‘marked with the sign of faith’. Throughout the month Masses will be offered in our church for all whose names are listed on our November Roll of the Dead. These names will be placed in the sanctuary throughout the month. If you would like the names of your deceased relatives and friends included, please take an envelope from the table at the back of the church and return it with your list enclosed to one of the priests or to the presbytery. Your offering may be placed in the envelope.

Certificate of Catholic Practice
Fr. Duncan will be making appointments for the signing of Certificate of Catholic Practice forms for Primary/Nursery school later this year, please keep an eye on the parish website. NB: The Certificate of Catholic Practice is a statement that the child concerned is being raised in a practicing Catholic family. This means the family are fulfilling the commandments by coming to Mass each Sunday.

SVP – Clothing Collection 6 & 7 November
The Society of St. Vincent de Paul will be collecting clothes for the homeless, prior to the 6.00pm Mass on Saturday 6th November and prior to the 9.00am and 10.30am Masses on Sunday 7th November. We would particularly welcome any warm clothing or footwear for men. Any clothing received will be taken to a homeless shelter immediately as the 10.30am Mass begins on 7th November, therefore NO donations at 11.30am or 6.00pm Masses please. All donations will be gratefully received. Many thanks in advance.
