St Paul’s – Parish update 

St. Paul’s Parish Newsletter: -> 23rd Sunday Ord Time (Cyc B) – 5th Sept 2021

Parish meeting: Next Sunday September 12 there will be a parish meeting after the 10 am Mass in church.  This will be both face-to-face and via Facebook to enable maximum participation from parishioners. The aim of the meeting is to discuss the steady steps being taken to remove restrictions within church while also ensuring parishioners feel safe to attend.  To help this meeting you are invited to share in advance ( either anonymously via the parish website or via email to the parish office) your thoughts to the following questions: 

  • What are your hopes for St Paul’s as we come out of lockdown?
  • What are your main concerns as we move forward?

There will also be a chance to ask questions on the day, but your thoughts and questions sent in advance will help make best use of our time together.

Season of Creation: The World Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation, celebrated on 1 September, kicks off the Season of Creation, a time of sustained prayer and action which lasts a month and four days. During this season we are encouraged to pray and engage in community events in order to deepen our relationship with our God, our neighbour and the earth we share, being ever more attentive to the cry of the earth and the cry of the poor.
