Ordination of Rev Joseph Mc Gill: St Mirin’s Cathedral 6th July
We pray for Deacon Joe McGill, soon to be ordained a Priest in our Diocese. We pray that Joe and all those preparing for ministerial priesthood may be ever conformed to Jesus, the High Priest. May they preach the Gospel with pure heart and clear conscience. May the Lord let them be shepherds according to His heart, single minded in service to God and the Church.
Reception of Holy Communion
As from last Wednesday the 23rd of June, the reception of Holy Communion returned to the normal time after the Priest’s Communion (St Johns only). In order to avoid climbing/squeezing by others in the pew, could all leave their seats regardless of receiving Communion or not.
