NEW BEGINNINGS – EMBRACING HOPE!
The key moments in our week here in the Faith Community of St Patrick and St Brigid, the home of the Roncalli Community, are: ( the five Rs! )
Rejoice in the Risen Lord at dawn, celebrating Eucharist, beginning a new week ( Sunday )
Reflect on the Sunday Eucharist and prepare for the next one ( Monday )
Renew and deepen our personal relationship with Jesus through a day of prayer ( Wednesday )
Remember the Cross. We fast in sorrow for our own sins, and the sins of the Church ( Friday )
Rediscover God’s Grace in our lives in the company of Mary, the Mother of Jesus ( Saturday )
Sunday 5.30 am Lauds followed by Dawn Mass ( N.B. for the moment on line only )
What better way to start our week than in the presence of the Risen Lord?( Other Masses on Sunday 9 am and 12 noon in St Patrick’s and 11 am in St Brigid’s )
Monday Very important day in our week. Day of Recollection. We reflect on the Sunday liturgy – the highpoint of our week. What did we say sorry for? What did the Lord say to us? What did we say thanks for? What do we want to do differently? We begin our preparation for next Sunday’s Mass, reflecting on the readings, especially the Gospel.
