There was no doubt that the Family Mass Team were back at their stations this Sunday. We had the
“blessing of the schoolbags” as many children brought their backpacks, schoolbags and lunchboxes
for the blessing at 10.00 Mass. A great beginning to the school year as a recognition of the presence of God in all we do especially as we learn and grow. We had beautiful singing, special prayers of the
faithful and the distribution of a calendar for parents with “a-prayer -a-day-for-a-month”.
It was also the beginning of the Season of Creation and handouts, posters and reminders have been placed around the Church to help us reflect on the beauty and meaning of Creation during this beautiful autumn time.
The family Mass Team and the Reader’s Club had their monthly gatherings to prepare the Liturgy. The Parish Team went through a long agenda in their weekly meeting. The Hospitality Group are back in full swing on Wednesday mornings and they make everyone feel welcome.
Yes September is a beautiful season of Creation, of activity … and of five in a row
