PASTORAL CHANGES IN OUR DIOCESE Maureen Kelly has retired as
Pastoral Planner. We wish her well and express our appreciation for all her
help and hard work in assisting us in this Pastoral Area.
Best wishes and blessings to all who have retired or semi-retired at this time.
We now have 27 of the 58 parishes in the diocese with no resident priest
under 75.
We obviously need to keep praying for a deeper understanding of the
Christian vocation and to pray that there will be more men and women who
will continue to answer God’s call.
We have to live with decline in priestly vocations and work for a more
collaborative pastoral area.

Prayer for Father’s Day

Lord, may I be gentle and strong, may I be firm yet fair.
A true friend, a kind listener.
May my family know protection, affection, direction.
May I hold them in times of fear,
May I dry the eyes that cry soft tears.
May we journey together through many years.
May I rest with a quiet contentment and make this silent prayer,
Father of all Fathers, guide our earthly way.

Liam Lawton
