FEAST DAY BLESSINGS
On Tuesday 21st November is the Feast of the Presentation of the Blessed Virgin Mary. The whole Church rejoices, as we do with the local Convent of the Presentation Sisters. The feast celebrates Mary in her grace-filled life, wholly given over to the Holy Spirit from the time of her conception.“As we venerate the glorious memory of the Most Holy Virgin Mary, grant, we pray, O Lord, through her intercession, that we, too, may merit to receive from the fullness of your grace.” Collect for the Feast. The parish is particularly blest to have the witness, life, and ministry of Sr Cyprian, Sr Annette and Sr Marion– and the many other Presentation Sisters who have graced the life of our parish since 1937. May they be abundantly blest and continue to be inspired by the charism of Nano Nagle. Great gratitude to the Sisters!!

BOOK OF LIFE
