Newsletter-3 June 2018


Reflection: This is my body. This is my blood.

It is unique to our Christian faith that God becomes present in a real way in ordinary bread and wine – food for the journey of life in the bread, energy and joy for the journey of life in the wine. Each time we come to Mass, we recall in a real way the death and resurrection of the Lord.When we receive the Eucharist we are not commemorating something that happened many years ago.  We become living tabernacles of the Lord, we allow God into our lives when we receive Holy Communion, we allow his love, his trust, his compassion to be part of who we are, but these gifts are not ours to keep to ourselves.  We are called to share Gods love with the people we meet in daily lives.

We Pray for the Sick: Nicholas Nelson, Donni Coakley, P J Tunney, and Carmel McCrann. Veronica Ugo, Lily Rahim, Patrick O’Reilly, Trisha Weldon.
