Fr. Dominic’s Desk: Intentions for Lourdes Pilgrimage
It is that time of year when I start to think of Lourdes, as it is less than two weeks away, so if anyone wants intentions brought to the shrine of Our Lady then please place them in an envelope, (with no money in it) and give them to myself or Tommy O’Toole.
Also if you wish any intentions to be included in the Masses I celebrate in Lourdes please place them in an envelope clearly marked ‘Fr. Dominic Lourdes Masses’ with any donation that you wish to give.
I go very early morning on the 18th July, so I’ll be checking the post lastly on the morning of the 17th July.
It was so lovely to be involved in the Our Lady, Star of the Sea school, year 2 retreat, last week. Hearing stories of how our young children help and be kind to their families, friends and classmates was great. Seeing how they all welcome and help each other, gives you great hope for the future. Let’s follow their lead and come together, welcome each other and help each other grow as a community. There’s lots of opportunities to get involved in the coming weeks. Star Family Group picnic in the gardens opposite the Royal Hotel in Crosby Waterloo, on Saturday 13th July at 1pm. St Thomas Family Group will be having a Board Games afternoon on Saturday 13th July in the Canterbury Room at 1pm. Our Liturgy Group will be meeting 30th July 7pm in the Canterbury Room at St Thomas. Please come along and be involved in planning how we celebrate the Liturgy.
