Christian Unity Week 21st to 28th January:
Christian Unity Prayer
God our Father, at the Last Supper, Jesus prayed, “that they may all be one as thou art in me and I in thee, that they may be one in us …” We make this our prayer also, as we ask you to send your grace and blessing on all Christians who are striving to draw nearer to you and to each other. Give us boldness to seek only your glory and the advancement of your Kingdom. Unite us all in you, Father, who with your Son and the Holy Spirit are one God, forever and ever. Amen.
Parish Pastoral Council: According to the PPC constitution, every year the three longest serving members of the council retire and are replaced by nomination or ballot by parishioners. This change is important, it brings fresh ideas to the council and also ensures it is not a job for life.
Please place nominations in the suggestion box at the back of the church. We have Polish, German, Filipino, Irish, English, Spanish and African families in the parish, from that group of seven different nationalities only three men are represented on the council, please help to make the PPC multi-cultural.
Next meeting of the PPC is Thursday 7th February items for the agenda and nominations should be given to Joe McGeough [chair] or Anna Allen [Secretary] or placed in suggestion box before 31st January.
