PARISH PRIEST WRITES:
Dear parishioners and dear friends
Today we celebrate the Feast of Pentecost. We recall that the one message of the Apostles spoke to people of different races and personality types.
It is the Holy Spirit who guided them and who guides us to find out the wisdom and strength to deal with our own weaknesses and needs and who gives us, as it gave them, the courage and fortitude to overcome the evil
that threatens others.
Perhaps we could commit to memory:
Thou, on us who evermore
Thee confess and thee adore,
With thy sevenfold gifts descend:
Give us comfort when we die;
Give us life when thee on high;
Give us joys that never end.
We pray especially for the victims of the abuse of children and other vulnerable people that features so much in the news at the moment.
God Bless you.
Fr. Richard Harvey
