OCTAVE OF PRAYER FOR CHRISTIAN UNITY
In spite of the fact that this year there will be no special Unity Service in our area, nor any exchange of pulpits, I think it is important that we continue to pray fervently for Christian unity. We will offer a special bidding prayer during the Octave leading up to the Feast of the Conversion of St Paul on the 25 January.
Eucharistic Congress Delegates: We have been asked to provide five delegates for the Congress in September, who will then become part of a core team for the Pastoral Area leading up to the Diocesan Synod in 2020. If you are interested in becoming a delegate, please contact Fr Tim before next weekend. Thank you.
The Eucharistic Congress will take place in September this year, but the Pastoral Area Forum will be in existence till at least 2020
Redemptorist Lay Associates: Fr Maurice O’Mahony will speak at all the Masses next weekend to present the idea of Lay Associates. This is an excellent opportunity for you to become more fully associated with the Redemptorists in sharing their prayer life, spirituality and apostolate. The level of commitment is respectful of personal choice and circumstance. There will be an open session (no obligation) with Fr Maurice and some of our Lay Associates to explore this possibility in the Fisher-More Hall at 3.00pm on Sunday 28 January.
