"If we think we can gather for worship on a Sunday without having concern for each other throughout the week, then the sacrifice we offer will be empty. 
If the local Christian community is vibrant, however, attendance at Mass will take care of itself. 
We cannot ‘fix' the sad reality of the faithful departing, or stem the stream of those who vote with their feet, by jazzing up the hymns or changing the parish priest. 
The church will be full on Sunday when neighbours' hearts, broken and mending, are full of love for one another: only then will they reach, together, for ritual and sacrament to put meaning, shape and expression into the deep and mysterious struggles of the spirit....."
 (‘Lost Soul' - Daniel O'Leary, Columba Press)

Please continue to pray for Fiona Pender,
our parishioner who has been missing since 22nd Aug ‘96
