Rainbows of hope from the children


Text Box: Poems & Prayers of Hope


Whenever we’re hurting, even as adults, there’s a child inside us wanting to go to a place of safety, where we feel loved and listened to -  to go to someone that makes us feel better. Most of us have memories of learning to ride a bike, and the wonderful joy we felt when we realised that we could ride alone without anyone holding the seat! But, do you remember falling off and limping home with a grazed knee to the person who could make it better? It’s a bit like that in today’s Gospel, Bartimaeus may have been blind but he knew Jesus was someone who could heal him - the blind man did His “limping home” to the one person who would listen and help him. Sure enough Jesus did just that – Bartimaeus’s cry for help was heard! Just as his eyes were opened, his heart was open to God’s love. In Jesus, God gathers his scattered people and opens their eyes to see His healing power. He is always there, waiting for his hurt children to come home to the Father who cares. May we be healed of any spiritual blindness that we have, so we can gather others to follow the footsteps of Christ and be powerful witnesses to the faith that can heal.   Praise Him!            

Mass is celebrated in our Churches:

St Marie’s: 12 noon Tuesday to Saturday, 8.30am and 10am on Sunday

Please note – All of us must wear a face-covering in Church


Though the Sunday obligation has not been reinstated, the Bishops are encouraging us to return to Sunday Mass....

Our capacity is now over a 100 in each Church and there is plenty of space at all our Mass


Keeping you all in prayer.
