For this Sunday 1st March 2015
Letter from Fr. Dennis to the Community:
My Dear Friends,
It’s really wonderful to see how many people are managing to get to Mass on weekdays during this Lent. The keeping of this season is so important and as I said last week – our main focus is to ask God to transform our hearts and to make us attentive and responsive to the needs of the people around us! So do ask yourself – could I get to Mass on a weekday, make the Stations of the Cross. Is it possible for me to spend time with the Lord on Wednesday and Saturday morning when the Blessed Sacrament is exposed? Our austerity lunches are not well supported, so we are returning them to Friday instead of Wednesday; come along and enjoy some fellowship, some gentle study of the scriptures and a delicious bowl of soup!
Looking ahead, on Friday 27th March the Stations of the Cross will be led by our St. Thomas’ Friends of Friends Group, and will be an exuberant outpouring of the gifts of the Holy Spirit. So make a note in your diary now and come along, this will be followed by a Soup Dinner afterwards in No. 62 – The Stations will start at 7 pm.
Last Friday was the Lenten Family Fast Day and our Parish CAFOD representatives will speak about this, this weekend. The collection envelopes will be distributed after all Masses for return next weekend, thank you, as always, for your generosity.
Finally, in just four weeks time we shall be at the start of Holy Week, once again there will be the opportunity for us to remember our loved ones at the altar of Repose via our “Lilies of Remembrance”. The special slips of paper for you to write the name of an individual or a couple you wish to remember will be available next weekend.
Fr. Dennis Touw
