Redemptorist Community News
COMINGS AND GOINGS: Please be understanding at the present time because the demands recently have been quite considerable. As you know, as well as the death of Sr Bernadette, we have been coping with a number of funerals in recent times and during the coming week, Fr Andrew will be away, as will Fr Charles, who will be giving his first Parish Mission in Birchington and Westgate in Kent. He will be with Fr Charles Corrigan and we assure him of our prayers too.
Sr Bernadette O.Ss.R., the last Redemptoristine in this country, died in the early hours of last Thursday morning. May she rest in peace. Please pray for the repose of her soul and for the sisters from Dublin who supported her so wonderfully, especially in the final days of her life. Her funeral will be at Nazareth House, Crosby, on Monday 10 April at 11.15am.
Comings and Goings: This weekend Fr Charles is in Kinnoull Perth with Frs Richard Reid and Peter Morris for a Vocations’ Weekend. Again I remind you that if anyone wishes to know more about religious and/or priestly vocations, we will be happy to talk with you. Also...Fr Andrew is going to FLAME, the youth event at Wembley this weekend, but will be back for the Sunday Masses.
Fr Barrie’s 80th. We congratulate Fr Barrie who reaches this milestone on the 18th of this month. He too will be away for a week from next Saturday, enjoying some holiday with his sister. His recovery from so much serious illness has been quite remarkable and we remain immensely grateful for all he is able to contribute to the life of both our parishes. For the record, Fr Brian Russell will be 77 on the 24th.
We congratulate Bros Michael Taylor and Royston Price, who will take their First Vows as Redemptorists tomorrow, 15 August, at the noon Mass. We will celebrate the Feast of the Assumption again and all are welcome. There will be an informal reception in the Fisher-More Hall afterwards.
