OTHER NEWS
 
The Carmelite Sisters in Dysart have sent us a newsletter [on the Notice Board] telling us of all that has been significant for them during the past year, thanking us for our friendship and generosity and promising to pray for us in the year ahead.  
 
………………………………………………………………………………
 
The Nunraw Abbey Christmas Newsletter is also on the Notice Board.
 
……………………………………………………………………………….
 
Fr John writes….a very big THANK YOU to each and every one for your festive prayers, season’s greetings and Mass cards and generous gifts which are greatly appreciated.  May God bless you and your families and friends especially during this holy season of Christmas when we celebrate Christ’s birth and all that his life and promises mean to us as we step out into 2018. 
 
………………………………………………………………………………
 
The Liturgy of the Eucharist Just a gentle reminder that the Eucharistic Prayers of the Mass are to be intoned by the priest celebrant alone in persona Christi and are not to be spoken or whispered by members of the congregation, as this can be very distracting for him as well as for others trying to listen and pray attentively. The Pray brethren….Holy, Holy, Mystery of Faith and the Lamb of God are the proper places for congregational responses.
