Weekly Bulletin 29th December 2019

Sunday Collection last Sunday: Came to £1760.   The Development Collection came to £802.     Thank you for your generosity as always.  

Thank you for your continued generosity to The Graan. We sincerely want to thank you for your outstanding contribution to the community at the Christmas Liturgical celebrations. Your support gives us great encouragement in our effort to preach the Gospel.


Today is the feast day of the Holy Family of Jesus, Mary, and Joseph. This feast day puts no emphasis on the miraculous or the marvellous but the story of a child over whom God watches particularly, in a family at the mercy of the historical and political cross-currents of the time. In its ready response to the word of God the Holy Family is a model for all Christian families


Happy New YearWe wish each and every one of you a happy and blessed New Year from all of us at The Graan Monastery. May 2020 bring you many blessings.

A New Year’s Prayer: May God make your year a happy one! / Not by shielding you from all sorrows and pain, / But by strengthening you to bear it, as it comes; / Not by making your path easy, / But by making you sturdy to travel any path; / Not by taking hardships from you, But by taking fear from your heart; / Not by granting you unbroken sunshine, / But by keeping your face bright, even in the shadows; / Not by making your life always pleasant, But by showing you when people and their causes need you most, / and by making you anxious to be there to help. God’s love, peace, hope and joy to you for the year ahead.


Please visit our Crib here at The Graan. Donations will be donated to our local St Vincent de Paul.
