Parishioners here is a prayer for this New Year 2021
arrived on earth in the stable at Bethlehem to
be a Saviour for each of us and for the whole world. We feel
the need of your Presence as we begin this new year 2021.
We are grateful that there are vaccines for the virus and we ask
that its protection will be effective for all of us.
We pray for those who have lost jobs and businesses and for all
who are still to face difficult days ahead and who are fearful
of the months ahead.
We ask for strength for all those in the front line of health
education, may they be encouraged through our prayers for
them. We ask your help for young people in education and those
who are now looking for jobs in a challenging job market.
May all those who have been isolated and who have not
wanted to live this way see the renewal of friendships and
contacts in this new year 2021.
Let our parish continue to be a happy and joyful community of
all ages as we move forward to restore people to Mass. Let us
all be thankful to you for whatever blessings we have had and
continue to have as we move through the new year. Bless us all,
be with us, let us know and experience your love at the beginning
of 2021 and let us pass this love on to all others. Amen.
Parish Mission Statement
I want you to be happy,

Wednesday, January 27th
Today is the feast day of St. Angela Merici, in 1535 she founded
the Ursulines, an order of nuns devoted to giving a Christian
education to girls. The Ursulines continue today and the work
of their schools is noteworthy for instilling service to all as
basic and foundational
May we be inspired to serve others in the name
of Christ as St Angela and the Ursulines did. This work continues
in the students at Ursuline schools who serve in all sorts of
jobs throughout the world.
During the time of the pandemic the spirit of
care and service exhibited in Ursuline education is more needed
than ever and in fact we have seen great care and neighbourliness
all around us.
Jesus Himself said that He came to serve and
not to be served. Let us who are His followers do the same by
being people of service to all around us.
Let me serve you, Lord Jesus, through my neighbour, Amen.
