Dear Parishioners here is a prayer for this New Year 2021
Lord Jesus,

You 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 and 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,
Always happy in the Lord.
I repeat what I want
is your happiness.
PH 4:4-5


Homily

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
Christian virtue.

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.
