Cruel to be Kind

 

gods love 500

 

In Hamlet, William Shakespeare wrote: “Sometimes, I must be cruel, in order to be kind.”

God is a loving Father, and sometimes this is the way he shows us his love. He is the potter and we are the clay. He crushes, treats us hard, and finally moulds us into beautiful shapes (Jer 18: 1-17).

We should learn to endure as Christ did through His suffering and death on the cross (Phil 2, 4). This is important if we hope to witness the glory of God. Success is achieved through hard work and hard work through discipline.

Fr Pat’s ashes have been interred in Rosehill Cemetery, amongst us and in our parish which he loved and served so well.

There is a gravestone with his name and dates and an inscription which says “Life is changed, not ended”,

The grave is a short distance from the Cemetery Chapel, proceeding leftwards, a very large monument with a recumbent angel on it is nearby.

The grave number is WR109. May he rest in peace

Look forward to seeing you there!

If you would like to join the team and you have already or are about to receive your First Holy Communion you are invited to apply.

Application forms are available in the Church Entrance Hall or please speak to Father Evangelist or Deacons Bill and Chris after Mass.

Musicians at Mass

We have a great tradition of music in our liturgy and young people over the years have performed at our services.

Along with the coming of the Baby Jesus, is the coming of a Baby Grand Piano. Jeanette, a friend from America has given us a piano. If there is enough space, it will grace the church and enhance our musical tradition.

Anyone who can play and would like to join our Music group, is welcome. It should arrive before Christmas, but it will take a few weeks before we decide on a position, tuning etc. 

Anyone is welcome to join our music ministry; we rehearse on a Friday night at 7pm for the weekend Masses.

Come and see.

Children's Liturgy

We are urgently looking for fresh volunteers for our Children’s Liturgy Group and Catechists for the First Communion Course.

Helpers with the Children’s Liturgy join a rota (one Sunday out of 5), will be given help and materials and must love children.

Catechists meet once a month for seven months and primarily assist parents to deliver the course materials and love to see the light of faith in children’s eyes.

Can you consider taking your turn?
