This Wednesday is Ash Wednesday and marks the start of Lent. Why not join us at the early morning mass, 7.15 each weekday morning for lent.
“Come Holy Spirit; fill the hearts of your faithful.”
Confirmation is a time of Christian commitment and renewal, a time of courage and growth. How appropriate that Confirmation in this parish usually occurs at the beginning of Spring, a time of new life, a time of year when plants have the courage to show their roots above the cold hard ground.
This Sunday we celebrate the conferring of the Sacrament of Confirmation on young people of our parish. The visiting prelate is Bishop Donal McKeown and we welcome him to St. Colmcille’s. This is an occasion of great joy for the whole parish. It is a time for all of us to renew our commitment to our Christian calling.
Today we pray that the Holy Spirit will come into the lives of all who are asking to be confirmed in their faith. We pray for: Harsha Abraham, Molly Atkins, Marielle Braga, Maverick James Kingston F Bungay, Tiernan Byrne, Shelby Lane Camilo, Niamh Collins, Ben Cunningham, Matthew Dawson, Abi Dynan, Adrian Escartin, Ronan Geoghegan, Lucy Gilfedder, Gareth Gibson, Connor Harkin, Natalia Karpinska, Brandon Logronio, JB Manticahon, Ben McAteer, Dillon McMullan, Dylan McMahon, Eamonn McPeake, Margaret McQuillan, Gosia Mlynarczyk, Ben Napier, James Napier, Rhys O’Mahony-Truesdale, Cezary Radulski, Cara Sinclair, Ellen Small, Ben Strahan, Tenson Thomas, Joshua Vance and Claire Whiteside
“Send forth your Holy Spirit and they shall be created,
and you shall renew the face of the Earth.”
