Filipino gathering

Nov 12, 2013

It was a privilege to celebrate Mass earlier this evening with members of the Filipino community and friends in our parish of Good Shepherd, Hurunui. We offered this Mass for all the people of the Philippines, especially those who are living these days with loss, grief and suffering in the midst of the trauma of earthquake and typhoon. 
 
We prayed also for all those who have died. May they rest in God’s peace.
