Newsletter 9th June 2019


Today we celebrate the feast of Pentecost and the coming of the Holy Spirit upon Jesus’ first disciples.  This gift helped to transform these timid followers of Jesus into courageous men and women, on fire with love for him and filled with a desire to spread the love of God to the whole world.  Every one of us who are baptised have been filled with the same Spirit of Jesus to do the same, in our own time.  I encourage you to pray for a renewal of the Spirit of God in our church as we face the joys and sorrows of life.  May each of us open our hearts and minds to being transformed more fully into the image and likeness of God.

This morning we will celebrate the Sacrament of Confirmation with Rebecca Hess and her family. Rebecca prepared with all our other Confirmation candidates but was away for the celebration in May.  Our prayer for Rebecca is that, filled with the Holy Spirit, she will continue to grow in faith, in hope and in love.  Please pray with her and for her.
