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


PENTECOST SUNDAY



That first Pentecost Sunday found the apostles in the upper room gathered in prayer. In many ways, we find ourselves in a similar situation as the apostles did on that first Pentecost Sunday. Many of us are still under stay-at-home orders or are working under restrictions to wear masks and keep our distance from each other. We have not been able to attend Mass since the first weeks of Lent. In the meantime, our homes have become places of more intense prayer. Not able to gather with our parish community, we watch the Mass on television or broadcast through social media. All the while, our longing to receive Jesus in the Eucharist is growing. We long for the day when we will receive Holy Communion alongside our brothers and sisters in faith. Just so, the apostles experienced a longing for the Lord. Only ten days earlier, Jesus had ascended into heaven. He was taken from their sight and their only consolation was his promise, “You will receive power from on high.” With longing for their Lord, they prayed fervently until the promise was fulfilled on that first Pentecost Sunday.
