NOVENA PRAYER TO THE SACRED HEART
Lord Jesus, your Sacred Heart is always open in love to each of us, especially when we are suffering. To all who come to you seeking your help, you show your compassion and healing power. You care for us when we are lost, sympathise with us in loneliness and comfort us in mourning: you are closest to us where we are weakest. You reach out your hand to us when we stumble and have most need of your help. I ask you to listen to my prayer during this Novena, and grant what I ask………………………. If what I ask is not for my own or others good, grant me always what is best, that I may build your Kingdom of love in our world. Amen.
to celebrate the Golden Jubilee of Our Lady & St Brendan’s Church. The Pastoral Parish Council has arranged a Mission to take place from October 18th to October 23rd 2020. Further details at a later date.
This was discussed at the recent Parish Pastoral Council Meeting. While the shared Anniversary Mass has proved to be popular with families wanting to have an Anniversary Mass at a weekend, it has become increasingly difficult with the long list of names to be read at the start and again at the middle of Mass. It was decided to read out the list of names and addresses at the start of Mass only, beginning from Saturday, June 8th.
While the diary is usually opened during the month of May to book Masses for the following year, we have found it is very difficult for families with a bereavement in the latter part of the year to book a first anniversary Mass. Consequently, the Mass Diary for 2020 will be available for booking Masses at the end of the Summer. Date will be confirmed later.
