In recent weeks we have removed chewing gum from the Church carpet and seats. It is important to observe the one hour fast before receiving Holy Communion. We encourage parents to ensure that children are not chewing gum when attending Mass. We ask your co-operation in this regard.
The boxes of envelopes for 2019 will be available for householders to collect in the Pastoral Centre from Tuesday Feb. 12th. The remaining boxes will be delivered to households in the Parish after Tuesday Feb. 19th.
The work to replace the covering on the church kneelers is now complete. This project was named as a project for the monies raised in the Silver Circle last year. Many thanks for your generous support.
First Reading: The prophets always had their work cut out for them, when it came to leading people to trust in God. In this respect, human nature has not changed.
Second Reading: Some of Paul’s community are denying the very heart of the faith, saying that there is no such thing as resurrection from the dead. Sadly, there will always be people who stray from the truth and who proclaim cheap alternatives. We must hold tenaciously to the truth of the Gospel.
Gospel: Before teaching the people, Jesus ’fixes his eyes on them.’ The Lord sees us in depth, not only with sight, but with insight.
If any Parishioners are unable to attend Mass on a temporary or permanent basis, the Priest for their area will bring them Holy Communion. Please contact the Parish Office on ☎ 066 7125932.
