PARISH  PASTORAL  COUNCIL

Meeting in Duhig Hse on Mon week June 10th.

 

 

GOSPEL  REFLECTION

Today we reaffirm with great joy our faith in the Eucharist, the Mystery that constitutes the heart of the Church. This feast originated for the very precise purpose of openly reaffirming the faith of the People of God in Jesus Christ, alive and truly present in the Most Holy Sacrament of the Eucharist. It is a feast that was established in order to publicly adore, praise and thank the Lord, who continues “to love us to the end”, even to offering us his body and his blood. – Pope Benedict XVI.
