Parish Priest - Father Anton Column

Father Anton Parish Priest

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

We continue with our Easter Celebrations knowing the promise of Christ that we will rise again.  It is our vision especially as recently a number of our long – standing parishioners have gone to the Lord.  This week we pray especially for the repose of the souls of Jean Ford and Paul Day.  May they rest in peace.  Their funeral services are on Thursday and Friday of this week.

Please also excuse my lack of availability this past week as I was due a minor operation under general anaesthetic.  I may still be a little groggy and with a hand looking like a boxing glove.  Bear with me please!

This Sunday is the A.G.M for Our Lady and St. Werburgh Parish following the 10 am Mass. Please come along and give your support!

Thursday evening at 6.30 pm we have evening prayer with a follow up session led by one of the Sion Mission Team.  Please join us if you can in the side chapel and then the Parish Hall.

Next Sunday we welcome the children preparing for First Holy Communion to the First Holy Communion Preparation Mass.  Please pray for them and their families.  May the gift of faith grow ever stronger in their lives.

Finally I join you all in prayer for sick family members.  I include my younger sister Maria who is very poorly in hospital.

May the comfort of Christ be with us all.

Father Anton s.c.j.
