Exam Prayer: Lord, pour out your Spirit of Wisdom on these students: help them to remain calm, to attend carefully to the questions asked, to think clearly, to remember accurately, and to express themselves well. Grant that they may reflect the best of the work they have done and the best of the teaching they have received. Accept their best efforts in these examinations and in the great test of life on earth. May your love be upon them O Lord, as they place all their trust in you.

 

READERS AND MINISTERS:It’s important during the summer that all readers and ministers are present for the Masses they have been assigned to. If for some reason you can’t be here please do all you can to ensure a substitute stands in for you.

Important Feast this Week:Wednesday is the feast of the Visitation of Our Blessed Lady. Mary’s charity was practical when she went to visit her cousin Elizabeth who was in need.

St Charles & The Graan:We will remember St Charles at all our weekend Masses on 4th June and we will have a blessing with the Relic of St Charles after 10.30am on that day.

 

Still More Hope: If you meet new people with a trace of excitement and optimism, then you still have hope. / If you give people the benefit of a doubt, then you still have hope. / If you offer your hand in friendship to others that have touched your life, then you still have hope. / If receiving an unexpected card or letter still brings a pleasant surprise, then you still have hope. / If the suffering of others still fills you with pain and frustration, then you still have hope. / If you refuse to let a friendship die, or accept that it must end, then you still have hope. / If you look forward to a time or place of quiet and reflection, then you still have hope.
