For this Sunday 23rd November 2014
Letter from Fr. Dennis to the Community:
My Dear Friends,
Next weekend is the 1st Sunday of Advent, and as such we begin our journey together towards Christmas. Once again, the very popular Posada Image will make its way around the parish giving us an opportunity, in our own homes, to take time and reflect on what Advent means for us. The statue of the Holy Family on their way to Bethlehem will make its journey around our parish, and will spend each night in a different home.
The Holy Family will start their journey on the first Sunday of Advent during 10.30 am Mass when I shall bless the image. The first family takes the Holy Family to their home and the “travelling Nativity” spends the night with them. They will then arrange with the next family in the chain a suitable time to collect/deliver the statue so that Mary and Joseph’s “journey” may continue around our community. In this way the Holy Family travels from house to house and is brought back to Church at the Midnight Mass. If you are keen to be part of this devotion and you wish The Posada to spend a night in your home, then now is the time to register by signing the list at the newspaper. Do it NOW so that you do not miss out.
Finally may I also take this opportunity remind every one of the services of Remembrance which are still to come in this month of the Holy Souls. There will be the special Mass at North Sheen Cemetery next Sunday 23rd November at 2.30 pm and if you are unable to get to that please remember also our own special Year’s Mind Mass on Tuesday 25th at 7 pm. This last event will be followed by a brief get-together in the Bowden Room.
Fr. Dennis Touw
