PRAYER FOR UKRAINE

Loving God, We pray for the people of Ukraine, for all those suffering or afraid, be close to them and protect them. We pray for world leaders, for compassion, strength and wisdom to guide their choices. We pray for the world that in this moment of crisis, we may reach out in solidarity to our brothers and sisters in need. Amen.

Our Parish

"For us Christ is everything. If you have a wound to heal, he is the doctor; if you are parched by fever; he is the spring; if you are oppressed by injustice, he is justice; if you are in need of help, he is strength; if you fear death, he is life; if you desire heaven, he is the way; if you are in darkness, he is the light.”
St Ambrose of Milan




Monday 8th April

The Annunciation of the Lord

Today we celebrate the Solemnity of the Annunciation of the Lord . Solemnities in the Catholic Church are celebrations that are of the greatest importance.

The Annunciation of the Lord refers to the time when the angel Gabriel visited the Blessed Virgin Mary to tell her that she would be the mother of the savior. Mary was the first to hear and believe that God would do what he promised the world. She also discovered that she would play a special role in God’s plan for salvation. Jesus would be formed in her womb, and she would care for him.

Mary agreed to God’s plan because she wanted her will to be God’s will. And she was willing to accept the joy and pain that came along with it to bring Christ to a world that waited for him. On this day, we do not only celebrate the announcement to Mary that she had been chosen to be the mother of Jesus, but also her willing acceptance of the news.
In 2024, because the usual date falls during Holy Week, the Annunciation will be observed on Monday, April 8th.
