Lord, I have no idea what's going to happen in this New Year
But all I pray is that You will guide me, and help me!
Please help me to look to You always, and through everything that I do.
May I bring praise and glory to Your name. I thank You Lord for another year. Amen

WISHING ALL OUR PARISHIONERS A HAPPY AND PEACEFUL NEW YEAR
On behalf of the priests of the parish ant the team I wish our parishioners every peace and blessing for the New Year.

The beatitudes offer us signs that can lead us through life with Christ at our side. We are challenged to be peacemakers. "Blessed are the peacemakers for they will be called children of God."

This is really a call to action to be makers of peace. Peace has to be created; it is not just the absence of violence. It requires ongoing effort and can never be taken for granted. We all have our part to play. Every act of violence and revenge and bad temper contributes to a violent world.

In this year, 2016, may we be people who make peace. May I be a person who works for peace.  May the peace of God be in my heart and may I have the strength and the courage to be a peacemaker.

Fr. Joe.
