Letter from Fr. Dennis to the Community:
My Dear Friends,
It is our particular joy to welcome Cardinal Vincent Nichols to celebrate the 12-o-clock Mass today and to bless the wonderful new icon of St Thomas of Canterbury. I do hope that this will be the first of many visits to our community and that he will feel truly at home. And I would also like to take this opportunity to thank Caroline Lees, the amazingly talented artist and member of our parish family, who has ‘written’ this wonderful image for us.
An icon is not meant to excite our external senses. It is not painted to depict the mundane everyday life, but rather the spiritual realm. It is written as a “window into heaven,” a physical means which allows us to gaze into the invisible spiritual reality. The simplicity of the icon is not meant to stir our emotions but rather to quietly invite us to leave the world for a moment and guide every emotion toward the contemplation of the Divine, and I have no doubt that this glorious icon will help us to do just that.
Now that Fr Javier is in residence I would draw your attention, once again, to the fact that Holy Mass is now also celebrated on Thursday morning at 9.30 am. Thus it is now possible for us to attend Mass in our own church every day of the week. Please do give this celebration your support as wonderfully as you do each other day of the week.
Finally I would draw the attention of parents who have children in Year 3 to the VERY IMPORTANT notice regarding enrolment for 1st Reconciliation and 1st Communion. Please note that this weekend (21st) is the last date for applications to be received – late applications will NOT be accepted.
Fr. Dennis Touw
