BEING A WELCOMING CHURCH - Following the presentation last weekend by Fionnuala Hegarty, the first of the Fr Hudson’s Care zoom presentations is on Monday evening 20th March, 7.30 -8.30 p.m. If you are interested in how parishes can support older people and those who experience dementia please take part. It has been prepared by Father Hudson’s Care working with a number of local parish groups. The session is free. Please sign up at https://www.eventbrite.com/cc/a-welcoming-church-1741579.
There will also be an opportunity to meet together in the Parish Meeting Room to watch and be part of the presentation. Refreshments available from 7.15pm ready for 7.30pm start.
Please pray for all those people, young and old, men and women, families, those who are alone, those who are vulnerable and who search and long to reach our country. That they may do so safely and be assisted to do so in a rightful, humane and dignified manner becoming of the gospel message, love my neighbour.
Let us pray:
Lord Jesus, right now in our heart and within our means we are called to welcome the members of God's family who come to our country to escape oppression, poverty, persecution, violence, and war. Like your beloved disciples, we too are weak and filled with fear and doubt and even suspicion. We build barriers in our hearts and in our minds. May our hearts not be hardened to the plight of those who need help, especially those we define as migrants and refugees. May we love them, embracing there need and have the courage to remind others of our common God-given dignity and of the stories, the faces, the lives affected and taken advantage of by this situation.
Lord Jesus, Holy Mary, and St Joseph, as the Holy Family of Nazareth crossed borders may we too intercede for those who cross borders seeking shelter and safety. Holy Family pray for them and for our hearts to be softened to help spread the message of welcome to migrants and refugees. Through Jesus Christ, your Son. Amen.
