Sixth Sunday of Easter

Fr. Duncan writes: This Thursday we celebrate the Feast of
ASCENSION OF THE LORD. A couple of years ago, the Bishops returned this feast to its proper day, 40 days after Easter and the celebration of the Resurrection. The Ascension is a Holyday of Obligation when we are bound to come to Mass. Masses in our church for the feast are on Wednesday at 8.00pm, and on Thursday at 8.00am, 10.00am and 8.00pm.
This Feast of the Ascension 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 as we reach out helping and supporting one another.
