PARISH NEWS……DIARY DATES
 
THANK YOU  to Isabella Holton for organising the Parish Retreat Day at Schoenstatt last Sunday. True prayer takes us out of ourselves and into communion with God and one another.  Stillness and silence are essential preparation for both contemplative union and dynamic activity in the spirit. “ That which I am and the way that I am with all the gifts of nature and grace you have given me Lord [and you are all of this] I offer to you principally to praise you and to help my fellow Christians and myself.  Amen”
 
MASS RESPONSES   A gentle reminder that when the celebrant at Mass intones ‘The mystery of Faith…..’at the end of the Prayer of Consecration, the words to our sung response are ‘ We proclaim your death O Lord and profess your resurrection, .until you come, until you come, until you come again.’
 
Do your children attend a school other than St Bernadette’s ?  Have you a child at P3 or P4 stage this year ? Would you like to support them in their preparations for reception of the sacraments in the spring of 2016 ?  If so then please contact Fr John asap.

Wednesday 7th  GILLIS CENTRE 7pm - 9pm ‘SCHOOL of EVANGELISATION – The first topic for the School of Evangelisation is ‘Growing Churches’. This will be led by Monsignor Philip Kerr VG.

To register for these contact jacqueline.heron@staned.org.uk
 
            Fr John writes….As I begin my 2nd year among you, I hope to start building a Parish Development Team to assist in identifying and developing those areas of worship, ministry, stwewardship and outreach which are the hall-marks of every vibrant parish community.  This series of Gillis seminars offers a timely help in that regard. Although I cannot attend the first session I hope to attend future events.  If you are interested in attending, please speak to me asap.  Thank you.
