Provincial Chapter 2016: The meeting which reviews all Province activity and planning begins tomorrow Monday June 20th and concludes Friday June 24th.

However the church and shop reception will be open each day from 9am – 5pm (with no priest available). We know you will understand. Changes will be made in weeks after the Chapter. Please keep us in your prayers.

 

Happy Father’s Day: God our Father, We give you thanks and praise for fathers young and old.

We pray for young fathers, newly embracing their vocation; May they find courage and perseverance to balance work, family and faith in joy and sacrifice. / We pray for our own Fathers around the world whose children are lost or suffering; May they know that the God of compassion walks with them in their sorrow. We pray for men who are not fathers but still mentor and guide us with fatherly love and advice. / We remember fathers, grandfather, and great grandfathers who are no longer with us but who live forever in our memory and nourish us with their love. Amen
