Novena Petition & Leaflets: Our Novena leaflets and petitions are available at the church porches today.

 

Days for the Sick: We’d like you to sign the register at the front door if you can help in any way. Almost anybody could help out by preparing plates, looking after the sick and helping to clean up afterwards. You don’t have to be an expert to help. Even if you have volunteered before please do sign the register as soon as possible.

 

Children: In preparation for the Novena of Hope we invite children through schools, and individually to submit posters with the theme of Hope and Good News. You always do such a superb job.

John O'Donohue on friendship and recognition: Real friendship or love is not manufactured or achieved by an act of will or intention.  Friendship is always an act of recognition... in the moment of friendship, two souls suddenly recognize each other.  It could be a meeting on the street, or at a party or a lecture, or just a simple, banal introduction, then suddenly there is the flash of recognition and the embers of kinship grow.  There is an awakening between you, a sense of ancient knowing.
