Hope all is going well.
Grateful to Deacon Tommy for today’s Preparing for Pentecost reflection.
Something we are to truly believe is that no prayer ever goes unheard.
God hears our every prayer because he cares for us.
So, here’s a prayer date to note - next Sunday 31st May 6.15pm Archbishop Tartaglia will lead the rosary live streamed from St Andrew’s Cathedral. A chance to join our prayers with Our Lady’s prayers to God.
Next Sunday is Pentecost Sunday and the 50th and final day of the Easter Season. Here’s something for St Joseph’s and St Andrew’s parishes.
How about putting pictures of flames or doves in your window or light a candle for Pentecost?
As parishes, we may continue to be physically isolated, but we're not separated. We are united as the body of Christ.... We are the Church. Praying at Pentecost, praying for the coming of the Holy Spirit, can help us to realise and appreciate that we are all with one another in prayer.
Why not take a photo of Pentecost at your home and send it in to be posted. Photos to be emailed to both firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com
Some news. Archbishop Tartaglia has written to all parishes to invite clergy to be involved in the planning of an exit strategy for reopening our churches when circumstances permit.
Our parish’s clergy’s responses to the consultation will go in tonight’s post.
The responses of all the clergy in the archdiocese will be collated, and principal conclusions drawn will be presented to the Bishops Conference of Scotland working group, which next meets on 2nd June.
I’ll keep you posted of any developments.
Again, there’s a great feeling of journeying together into the 'new norm' - starting at the right place, in the Power of the Holy Spirit...
Remember tonight’s 9@9 call to prayer to the Holy Spirit
Hope you have a safe and happy Sunday.
