Today is the Sixth Sunday of Easter, and we are heading into the time of Ascension and, later, Pentecost. Thank you and well done to everyone was part of the First Communion thanksgiving Mass and party last Sunday. It was a lovely occasion!

On this Good Shepherd Sunday (the Fourth Sunday of Easter) we celebrate that Jesus, our Good Shepherd, is risen from the dead and leads us from death to life. Today we are also asked to pray for vocations to the priesthood and religious life. We also pray for all priests, that they like Jesus, may be good shepherds in their way of life and their ministry. Please pray for Ashley from our parish who will begin his formation for the priesthood in September. If anyone else would like to speak to me about a vocation, please let me know. Finally, next Sunday at 11.15am Mass we will celebrate the Going Forth Mass in thanksgiving for the recent First Holy Communions.
