Bulletin May 3rd 2020
As we have no Sunday Mass congregation we would greatly appreciate your support where possible for our weekly Planned Giving to help with the basic maintenance of the Church and Parish. We know that many people have been affected financially by the Covid- 19 crisis so any support is greatly appreciated. You can do so by clicking on the `Donate` button on our website www.balbrigganparish.com Thank you. Fr. John
“I CAME SO THAT YOU MAY HAVE LIFE AND HAVE IT TO THE FULL”.
God wants us to have a meaningful life and to live it to the full. Too often people just drift through life. We should live in such a way that we do not look back with regret. Living life to the full does not mean living it up. God calls each of us to follow a certain path, whether that is to married life, single life, or a life in ministry as a priest or religious. The one who enters through the gate is the shepherd of the flock; the gatekeeper lets him in, the sheep hear his voice, one by one he calls his own sheep and leads them out. When he has brought out his flock, he goes ahead of them, and the sheep follow because they know his voice.” On this Good Shepherd Sunday we celebrate the World Day of Prayer for Vocations. Pray for an increase in vocations to the priesthood, diaconate, and consecrated life, especially for our diocese, that God will raise up good shepherds in our midst. Do you hear the voice of the Lord, the Good Shepherd calling you to a particular way of life?
