JESUS IN OUR MIDST

To him the whole world is like a grain of dust.

Yet he loves all that exists, and comes to dwell with sinners.

My Dear Friends,

I was very taken by the presence of a number of the Monday Club at the funeral of Flo O'Brien last Monday and of the fact that they had come regardless of the stormy weather! Flo was 96 and had been a member of the club. Such loving support is an important part of every parish community and it is obvious to me that there's plenty of that in St. Gregory's.  May I encourage those who can to come to Mass during the week.  I find that it is a great source of community building in the parish.  During the month of November at every Mass we will be remembering all those on the November Dead Lists.  This is a great consolation for them and ultimately for us - that we will be remembered and prayed for at Mass.  

God Bless.                  

Fr. Paul
