TODAY   [1] Having celebrated the great events of our salvation in Christ, on the Feast of the Holy and Undivided Trinity we now celebrate the very being of God Who is Love. The Divine is a network of loving relationships between Father, Son and Holy Spirit. between the Creator, the Pain-bearer and the Love-maker. And we are created in the image and likeness of this God who is loving relationships. So we celebrate also who we are!
[2] Very appropriately on this Feast of the Trinity, we have the joy of celebrating the Sacrament of Baptism with some of our children. Please pray for them and their families.
[3] It is also Fathers’ Day – so congratulations and prayers for all the Fathers in our community, as they with their wife/partner create a safe and loving environment for their children
[4] Mass and Ministry with the LGBT+ community and family & friends – all very welcome to come and share.

NEXT SUNDAY    [1] We celebrate the the Feast of the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ (‘Corpus Christi’), giving great thanks for the sublime gift of the Eucharist, Jesus giving us Himself as our food and drink to nourish our lives with His love and transform us into His presence in the world. May our love for the Christ of the Eucharist will grow.
[2] We have the joy of celebrating First Eucharist with 18 of our children and young people – 16 families in all. This is such a sign of hope for our community and its future! Please pray for them, that they will continue to ‘grow in all ways into Christ’.
