During this current COVID -19 situation and with stage 3 restrictions put in place all sacraments are to be postponed until further notice. This decision was put in place after talking to Fr Joseph (Parish Priest).
When Fr Joseph announces that sacraments will be celebrated again I will let the parents know. Thank you very much for your patience.
Father's Day Prayer
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.
A Prayer to St Joseph, the Great Protector
You were receptive to God working in your life.Help us by your prayers at this time of trial.
You kept Jesus and Mary under your watchful care:may your prayers assist our local Church to respond to those in need.
You taught the Christ Child your trade and prayers:help us to follow his example of love.
You were part of God’s plan for all humanity:assist us to be vigilant and responsible this day.
You spent your life in service:may we be mindful of others, particularly the elderly and vulnerable, caring for them in these difficult days.
You trusted in the clear primacy of God over all history and every situation: help us to grow in faith and pray to the Father, Thy will be done.Amen
