PREPARATIONS FOR PENTECOST
‘Let all the earth cry out to God with joy’ Psalm 66
‘The Church is all about Celebration’, said Pope Francis at his morning homily last week. This was in evidence at 9am Mass last Sunday when two of our parishioners, Martina and Sinead, were confirmed. The Spirit was moving and those of us present experienced the joy of the occasion, alongside the candidates and their families.
We wish to extend an invitation to celebrate Pentecost here at St Mary’s at 3pm, Sunday 8th June. The aim is to ‘bring everyone together’ in the same spirit of joy, to thank everyone for their contribution to the parish and to celebrate the diversity of our people, their gifts and nationalities.
There will be only ONE Mass on 8th June, instead of the usual five.
- We invite you to come along with your families and friends.
- Wear bright colours, the colours of your country or your national dress.
- Bring banners for your group.
- Bring along a plate of food to share after Mass in the hall.
- Help us by volunteering to welcome, set up the hall, clear away at the end.
Help us make this a celebration to remember!
