CATHOLIC SCHOOLS WEEK SUNDAY 22ND. TO SUNDAY 29TH. JANUARY
THEME: ‘ WALKING TOGETHER IN FAITH & LOVE’

For this year’s annual celebration of Catholic education, CSW will draw on three features of the Synodal Pathway: ‘Communion, Participation and Mission’.  The theme for CSW 2023 is dedicated to celebrating the gift of Catholic education and recognizing the love and generosity of the entire school community: students, staff and home.

CONFIRMATION 

Next Saturday (28th. Jan. 2023), the young people of our parish will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit when they celebrate the sacrament of Confirmation.  We pray for them, their families and all who have prepared them for this special day.

WEEK OF PRAYER FOR CHRISTIAN UNITY 18TH. - 25TH. JANUARY 

In this week of Prayer for Christian Unity, Paul’s message to Christians in Corinth deserves mention.  It is unequivocal: ‘make up the differences between you … be united in belief and practice’.  During this special Week of Prayer for Christian Unity, we are invited to play our part, especially by praying for unity among and between Christian communities.  Prayer matters, because Christian Unity is ultimately a gift of the Spirit.  But reconciliation involves action too..
(Mary T O’Brien pbvm, Intercom Jan. 2023)
