A warm welcome to Holy Family Parish. We are delighted to have you in our family and would like to encourage you to make yourself known by introducing yourself at the Parish Office in the Priests House at the back of the church. Families are welcome at ALL Masses. I feel that our Parish is a wonderful place to be in, where there is the generosity and hospitality of the many Parishioners who share their time to make things happen.
We welcome you warmly to Mass but hope that you may feel that you can add something else to the Parish and will get involved, serving coffee after mass or one of the many, other roles that exist or maybe you can create something new. We look forward to meeting you. Keep safe.

Fr Patrick Ryan

READERS AT THE SUNDAY MASSES
Those chosen to be lectors need to meet occasionally to strengthen their shared ministry and plan for liturgical events in advance. The reader should attend mass every Sunday and take part in the liturgy even if they are not called to read the scriptures publicly on that day. If you feel you are called to participate in the Mass as a reader please see me.
CHILDREN COMMUNION PREPARATION FOR NEXT YEAR
Well done to all the children who came to the Communion preparation this Saturday. Next meeting is on Saturday May 25th 12:00 noon to 1:00pm in the Church: “Go you are sent” How do you live your Catholic Faith. Parents, help your children understand Christ’s teaching that they become a sign of God’s goodness and become themselves the “Good News”. Continue to remind your children about the sacrament of Reconciliation.

HOLY FAMILY HALL
The toilets in the hall have been recently refurbished. Please keep them clean. Children under the age of 5 must be supervised. After events please check the toilets – turn off taps and lights.
Please also keep the general hall space and kitchenette clean and tidy. Chairs should be neatly stacked no more than six high. The darker chairs should be stacked separately for the blue ones.
Everything should be left as they were found.
Our Finance Team will now look at preparing Terms and Conditions and Costs for the use of the Hall and decide what changes need to be made taking in to consideration rising gas and electricity bills and general cleaning and upkeep of the premises.
CONFIRMATION SPECIAL: A DATE FOR YOUR DIARY
Candidates you have decided to have your next Confirmation Meeting in our church on Thursday the 6th of June at 7.00pm in the Hall. The meeting will finish at about 8.00pm. I look forward to seeing you there.
Life is Choices. Every day you make hundreds of choices. What to eat. What to wear. What time to arrive. Whom to hang out with. Whether or not to listen. What to care about. Many of these choices can seem inconsequential. But one choice builds upon another, and in the end our choices define who we become. Choices matter.
• Keep on being prayerful.
• Keep the handouts that you have been given neatly in a folder.
• Keep a diary of your thoughts, ideas things to do, that you may share with others at our meetings. If it is important to you it could be worth sharing.
• Keep your folder and your diary together and bring them to the meeting. …And don’t forget to bring a pen or a pencil to the sessions. You may need to write some points to take home and reflect on.
In the next meeting we will reflect on the Pentecost event and how that event shaped the church and you from that moment to now.
It is vital that everyone understands the following words of Jesus. So, what does He mean?
“You did not choose me:
no, I chose you;
and I commissioned you
to go out and to bear fruit,
fruit that will last; …” (John 15:16)
