Synod 2020-on the road together: This weekend we welcome Fr Poland from Christ the King and Our Lady parish who will celebrate all our Sunday Masses. This weekend all local priests will be in a different church in the Pastoral Area. This is the first of six occasions the next two years when a different priest from the Pastoral Area will celebrate Mass here.
The priest will help us to see that:
- We are moving in a new direction by small but significant practical steps towards a Diocesan Synod in 2020.
- You will see that the priests will be working more closely together to serve Christ and His people in this area.
- Father will mention that the first meeting of the Pastoral Area Synod has happened. Many of this group are delegates at the Eucharistic Congress in September.
- The priests will speak of how they are endeavouring on a new path with us and ask us to pray, to share our expertise, energy and commitment to offer God all we have in order to best serve as missionary disciples.
A DIAMOND DAY: I want to say a huge thank you to everyone who made the celebration of my Diamond Jubilee of Ordination, Saturday 7 July, a truly memorable occasion. Together with my family I wish to express my gratitude to all of you for your cards, gifts and above all your presence on the day. I formally thanked a number of people at the Reception. But to those who worked quietly behind the scenes giving their time and energy – Thank you. Kevin Callaghan C.Ss.R.
The Women’s Group taste of summer event on Wednesday 18 July has been cancelled due to circumstances beyond their control.
From the team: We are sorry to let you down but promise that our programme for September to December will offer you a varied range of events and activities to entertain you during the autumn months.
Fr Jan Milcz C.Ss.R RIP
