I am looking forward to the start of our Lenten reflections beginning this week. If you are receiving this email you are signed up to receive the daily emails.
My Monday – Friday work with the National Liturgy office of Aotearoa mostly leaves me free at weekends for parish Mass supply and especially for Parish Missions.
This weekend, and until Tuesday night, I am in the parish of St. Joseph in Upper Hutt for a parish mission. I see it as time of encouragement for people who are seeking greater maturity of faith.
All are welcome. Each of the five mission sessions stands alone so come to one or come to all.
These sessions might be especially helpful for those who may feel as though they are distant from the church. Invite a friend!
Here’s the note from the parish newsletter:
