Quote of the week

Our hope is not just optimism; it is something else, more! It is as if believers have an additional ‘piece of heaven’ over their heads  

..... accompanied by a presence which some are not even able to sense .

Pope Francis Oct. 2017.


Editors Note

Regret No Bulletin next Sunday.





Alleluia, He is Risen


O God, who on this day,

Through your Only Begotten Son,

Have conquered death

And unlocked for us the path to eternity,

Grant, we pray, that we who keep

The solemnity of the Lord’s Resurrection

May, through the renewal brought by your Spirit,

Rise up in the light of life.

Through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,

Who lives and reigns with you in the unity

Of the Holy Spirit,

One God, for ever and ever. Amen.
