Thoughts from the presbytery – 23 September

Congratulations to the fifteen young people who will be confirmed this Sunday. Confirmation is the sacrament whereby the apostles and their successors, by the laying on of hands and anointing with chrism, communicate to the whole Church and its members the gift of the Spirit received at Pentecost.  It is Pentecost extended throughout the world, perpetuated, and made ever present in the Church.  It is a call to spread the kingdom of Christ, to spread the message of salvation. (The teachings of Christ).  We are indebted to Diane Carey and the Sacramental Team for their support of these young people and their families as they take this important step to discipleship  May the gifts received from a loving God be used to build a world reflecting God’s plan for humanity.

Gunning finance committee will meet on Thursday at 5pm. We are grateful to Trish Gibbs for accepting the invitation to serve on St. Augustine’s finance committee.

On the 17th October, interested parishioners are invited to attend a gathering to look at issues you would like as agenda items for the Plenary Council 2020. I have attempted to put together a survey before this gathering but now think it might be better to wait until after this meeting.  In other words, to listen to what you consider important for the church moving forward.
