Dear Jesus, I come to you today     
Longing for Your presence.     
I desire to love You as You love me.     
May nothing ever separate me from You. Amen.   


Pope Francis
The Holy Father says that “commitment to mission is not something added on to the Christian life as a kind of decoration, but is instead an essential element of faith itself.  A relationship with the Lord,” he adds, “entails being sent out into the world as prophets of his word and witnesses of his love.”

Over the last 18 months, including this week, there have been a large number of funerals in the parish.  This has had a knock on effect on Month’s Memory and First Anniversary Masses. Both of these are important moments in grief. In order to avoid causing families undue stress, having to wait months to mark these moments, fromthe first weekend in June two intentions will be combined on Saturday night and 11.30am and 1.00pm Sunday Masses. This applies only to Months Memories and First anniversaries. Both families will be facilitated at the Offertory, ie four gifts will be brought forward.

The loss of a child is every Mum and Dad’s worst nightmare, the pain goes deep. Family and friends try to understand, and indeed are going through their own grieving process, but the only person who can really understand your loss is someone who has experienced the death of a child.
