Father David’s News

Ash Art for November:

This months painting is entitled “Not Alone” by a Contemporary American Artist, Danny Hahlbohm.  Of this picture Danny writes:  “One of the biggest questions we all ask ourselves at one time or another is, “After this life, then what?”.  “I think my art work speaks quite clearly on what I personally believe”.

“I hope one day when I meet Him (my God) face to face to hear my Lord say, “Well done my good and faithful servant” – Then will my life be complete and satisfied within.

Take a close look at the picture and behind the soldier kneeling in prayer you will see the faint representation of an angel watching over the soldier bent on one knee in prayer.


CAR PARKING AT HOLY FAMILY – A number of Parishioners have told me that they cannot get out of the car park because they have been blocked in by other cars.  We know parking is difficult and the space is limited.  If you get held up after Mass please check that you are not blocking others from getting away – and to everyone ‘Thank you’ for your patience and courtesy – a very rate quality in life generally today.

A Special  Prayer at this time

Commemoration of All Souls

Eternal God, Lord of heaven and earth, we remember with thanksgiving, and commend to your infinite love, those faithful souls who having served you here on earth are now at rest in your presence, especially those most dear to us.

Give us grace so to follow their faith and good examples that we may share their joy, and at last be numbered with your saints in glory everlasting;  through the mercy of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. (Frank Colquhoun)

‘Eternal Rest grant unto them, O Lord, and let perpetual light shine upon them’
