Parish of Our Lady and St. Brendan
Sunday September 22nd - 25th Sunday in Ordinary Time
First Reading ’Listen to this,’ the Lord says to his people. Prophets call us to repentance and the first step towards repentance is listening to the demands of God.
Second Reading Christians can be at odds with the powers of this world, but they are not people who subvert legitimate authority. Paul urges them to pray for those in authority.
Gospel Jesus tells a parable in which a man is praised for the astuteness of his dishonesty. We are called to imitate the astuteness, not the dishonesty. The Lord invites us to virtuous astuteness!
The awards were presented at a ceremony in the Rose Hotel last Tuesday night. We are delighted to announce that we have been included in the Public Buildings/Spaces Category again this year. Many thanks to our staff and also to our parishioners in supporting our work of keeping the grounds litter free.
From Monday, Sept. 16th weekday opening times will be 9.00am-12.30pm and 1.00pm-4.30pm. (Monday-Friday).
Our Parish Office will take bookings for 1st Anniversary Masses Thursday, September 26th. All other bookings will be taken from the following day Friday, September 27th.
This was discussed at the recent Parish Pastoral Council Meeting. While the shared Anniversary Mass has proved to be popular with families wanting to have an Anniversary Mass at a weekend, it has become increasingly difficult with the long list of names to be read at the start and again at the middle of Mass. It was decided to read out the list of names and addresses at the start of Mass only, beginning from Saturday, June 8th.
to celebrate the Golden Jubilee of Our Lady & St Brendan’s Church. The Pastoral Parish Council has arranged a Mission to take place from October 18th to October 23rd 2020. Further details at a later date.
