Dear Parishioners,

We had a very vibrant and fruitful evening on Thursday as our Mission Team met up with the Mission Leader from Sion Community.  Plans are in place for a very interesting week in school and in the parish, a fortnight all told.  Thank you to all those making preparation and offering help but also thank you in advance for any support especially the making use of all that is offered.  Let us remember that this is a time to receive, in particular to receive the word of God anew, to refresh our spiritual lives and to make new our inner strength; let our hearts be filled with God’s love and strength in these challenging time.

By way of help please note that any donations in support of the costs of the Mission would be greatly appreciated.  We are responsible for costs of travel, food, publicity plus a sizable donation to the Sion Community for their work.  There will be a team with us throughout both weeks.  Perhaps you might like to dedicate the Mission to a loved one by way both of a spiritual and practical help.  Thank you in advance for any help!

Please remember in your prayers William Kerr who was buried this week at Ashley along with family and friends.  Also prayers please for Bob Hedges and family.  Bob’s Requiem is on Wednesday January 31st at 11.30 a.m.  Eternal rest grant unto them O Lord!

God bless and keep you all safe in his care!

Father Anton s.c.j.
