St Patrick’s Missionary Society kiltegan: Fr Brendan Payne will talk at all the masses next weekend 14th/15th March. Through this visit we wish to recall how missionary work is central to our faith and thank you for your generous support in the past. The mission appeal which Fr Brendan Payne will coordinate asks for your continued support for the Society’s missionary works, through enrolling in Mission Circle, subscribing to “Africa” magazine or supporting other initiatives.
When we say “I Believe”: During the Creed, there are two aspects to that belief. It is intellectual, a free assent to the whole truth that God has revealed & it is also a personal adherence to God. Belief in God does not simply express an intellectual conviction that God exists. It also means a personal entrusting of one’s life to God. The Creed invites us to surrender more of our lives to God each week & to renew our commitment to Him.
