APPEAL FROM FR PAUL


Please be responsible and remain disciplined in obeying lockdown laws. Please get vaccinated as soon as possible.


Pope Francis himself has urged people to vaccinate. It appears that higher vaccination rates are the principal hope for a definitive and lasting solution to the pandemic.


We Christians are people of hope. Our shared faith in Jesus Christ and his Gospel provides us with a sure map through troubled waters. We can offer powerful witness to our world, especially those who are overwhelmed by fear and despair, by the way we face this time of testing with responsible discipline, courage and concern.


Let us pray that we are up to the challenge.

Safeguarding of Children and Young People

  2. Attending a Parish Safeguarding Training Course (or approved alternative);

  3. Signing a Code of Conduct Form;

  4. Signing a Volunteer Agreement Form.

Over four hundred people have completed the Parish Training Course, including parishioners from the Spanish community at Ashcroft and other parishes.

All Saints Parish Prayer during the Pandemic

Merciful God of hope and life, during this time of pandemic,

May we hold to attitudes and behaviours that profess our faith in Jesus Christ,

May we act with care and responsibility to keep our community safe,

May we be beacons of hope to those feeling overwhelmed and fearful.

Heal those who are infected by the virus,

Guide healthcare professionals and researchers in their work,

Inspire politicians, business and community leaders by your wisdom,

Bring those who have died to yourself and comfort their loved ones.

We make this prayer through Our Lord Jesus Christ, Amen.

Mary, Mother of God. Pray for us.

All Saints. Pray for us.
